It’s no secret that TV series are sometimes forced to make changes to their
characters to appease audiences, casts and network execs.
Bewitched’s Darrin and that Family Matters missing middle child?

the skin color of
one Waylon Smithers from The Simpsons, which took exactly one episode to go
from dark to the same yellow as the majority of the characters.
Rather than being anything racially motivated, though, Smithers’ black
guy-ness was
merely the result of an error in the animation process.
