Just look at this 1951 representation of a CRT with beam deflection magnets!
Is this an example of anthropomorphisation - there's a good word for Scrabble! Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human features to non-human things.
Alas, this poor CRT is covering it's ears, shouting "Oh!" whilst sporting a chevron moustache like Henry Cavill, Tom Selleck, Freddie Mercury, Mike Ditka, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Burt Reynolds,
