Talking to a pal tonight and she said something interesting. She told me she didn’t realise the Simpsons were yellow for years. My first thought about that is probably the same as yours to be honest but the reason surprised me. Up until 3 years ago she was still watching on an old black and white telly, she made the colours up. She got them wrong!
It’s funny how when we’re presented with an incomplete picture how we fill in the blanks and, most times, we fill the blanks with total bollocks!!
We just make it up! I mean sometimes we get it right but most times, because the only way we can fill the blanks is to use more incomplete information, we will always be slightly off.
How many colours have you made up in your head? Maybe it’s time to look at some old shows through new eyes…
