Vote up the TV characters you can't believe were created as an afterthought.

Given that so much work and planning goes into creating some of our favorite television series, it's always surprising to learn how many things, especially characters, we take for granted. So many iconic characters - the kind of characters that have lived on in memes, GIFs, and our hearts - actually came about as a result of chance or some offhand decision, even on intricately detailed shows like Breaking Bad or Lost

Whether it's a scheduling conflict or a marketing decision after getting feedback from viewers or just the creators falling in love with an actor's performance, there are so many TV characters who were never supposed to exist at all or were supposed to show up for a guest appearance and leave, who ended up becoming integral parts of the shows they're on. These are some of the most popular characters that you might be surprised to know weren't supposed to be in their shows at all.
