35 Early Designs Of Characters Their Creators Want Burned

It's no secret that what we see on television and in movies isn't the original concept that the creators came up with. The steps from idea to final product are numerous, as are the hands and eyes that idea will pass through.

And we've got to say that we're pretty happy nobody was high enough to greenlight anything remotely close to the original concept, because most of them range from silly to downright nightmarish.
