I had my 4in green cathode on my tv and my bird picked up and threw it of the tv but it kind stuck to the screen and slid down and started to light up. So tehn i picked up and started to move it across the screen and it lit up. Weird. I had all the lights off exept my pc moniter and the tv wasnt on and you cant do it with the light on

Simple answer the static electricity from the tv screen charged the cathode the same way the wires would do it. Since they are like a light bulb that has to have flowing current. You can do the same thing with a flourescent bulb.

You get the same effect if you go in a dark room or closet and rub a fluorescent bulb with a sock or staticy (if that's a word) cloth.
