As I recall, the character was dropped because he had no specific personality. He was too egghead to be Tony, and not good-looking enough to be Bobby. He was like a male Nardo, and never had any story arcs.
And his blandness made him the logical character to drop in favor of Jim. Perhaps he might have been dropped even if Jim had not been added, but we'll never know. As producer Ed Weinberger said at the time, "We just had too many people. We couldn't write for everybody."

quote:
Final question: Was an explanation ever given for the disappearance of Adam from Bonanza?
Yes, he was said to have moved away somewhere (Australia, I think). The producers deliberately left his character's fate open in case Pernell Roberts reconsidered and returned to the show.

Boy Meets World had two characters with a long hiatus, and I loved the way they dealt with it. The first was Corey's younger sister, who disappeared for a few seasons and then suddenly came back a few years later. When she walked down the steps, everyone in the room was shocked and I think the dialog exchange was somewhere along the lines of "Where have you been?" "In my room...for a very, very long time". Also, the nerdy character Minkus was a classmate in Junior High, but suddenly got written out of the show for the high school years. In an episode where they are getting ready to graduate, Corey runs into Minkus in the hallway. Stunned, Corey asked "Where have you been for the last 4 years?" and Minkus replies "All my classes where in that hallway, and the camera shot changes from the shot of the school hallway they have used since the first season to another, completely different hallway.

For one season, "married...With Children" pulled a Cousin Oliver when the family adopted their nephew Seven. Although they made a couple joking references to his disappearance later on, I don't believe his departure was ever explained or acknowledged.

From the imdb trivia page of Jamie Foxworth:

"After a few seasons on Family Matters her character went upstairs and never returned. Her part was discontinued because producers chose not to develop her character"

For that matter, what happened to Sam (Rob Lowe)? Last we see him, he's running for the House in Orange County, and expected to lose horribly. So what happened? If he lost, why didn't he come back to DC? If he won, why wasn't that mentioned? (At least he's been mentioned since then, though. Poor Mandy is treated as if she never existed...) (Or did I miss something somewhere?)

Kevin (Kenny's brother, and one of about three "Kevins" on South Park) was in more than one episode; he would frequently show up whenever Kenny's family was shown. He was never really an important part of any episode, however, so it's possible Parker and Stone just forgot about him.

Shelly's been seen recently, I believe. I'm pretty sure she was in an episode this season. (The roles of the female characters did seem to get scaled back quite a bit after Mary Kay Bergman's death, however.)

I thought Mandy quietly resigned over the flap where the bad guys were using an opposition memo that she wrote during her leave of absence from the White House against the President?!?

Or did she commit suicide in a car in a parking lot in Virginia, but we know it was really President Bartlett's hit squads who killed her and juat set it up to look like a suicide? [Eek!]

Or maybe he was sent up for abusing Kurt Cobain!

Speaking of M*A*S*H: in 1974, it was announced in TV Guide that singer Loudon Wainwright III was joining the regular cast of M*A*S*H. He appeared in only three episodes before vanishing, probably because they didn't have any idea what to do with him. There was no explanation of his appearance, either, and in the only episode I've seen him in, he just was showing singing a song at the end and doing nothing else.

The Simpsons had Dr. Marvin Monroe, who appeared in several episodes during the first couple of seasons. He disappeared and wasn't heard from again until a clip show aired that said he was one of two characters who died (the other being Bleeding Gums Murphy) at that point. Of course, no mention of his death was ever in an actual episode before that clip show.

I don't recall what reason was given, but Lt. Dish (Karen Phillip, formerly of Brasil '66) didn't survive beyond the first season, either.

And then he miraculously came back to life last season for a book signing. There was some sort of gag about it, but I don't remember it. It must not have been that funny.

And did anyone watch Good Morning Miami? For about half of the first season there was a nun that did the weather forcasts. She just disappeared at some point.

They had to ditch them, no one would ever have accepted them being voiced by someone different - kinda like Kermit has never been the same since Jim Henson.

Sigh - I miss Phil Hartman, too.

True, but I think she only appeared in the pilot and a single regular-season episode, so she'd hardly qualify as a regular cast member.

"It was very exciting. A huge thing. Certainly millions of people saw me on TV being Capt. Calvin Spalding, the singing surgeon as I was called. A lot of fun to do. I did three (episodes) all told and wrote a bunch of songs for them. It was a great thing. I wish I had done thirty instead of three. They just used me three times and... I don't know, you'd have to ask Gene Reynolds and Larry Gelbart why I wasn't on again."

In an early episode of M*A*S*H Hawkeye receives a sweater knit for him by his sister, but later on in the series he's an only child.

Sam was planning to stay in Orange County to revitalize the Democratic Party there. It was expected he would run again in two years.

Mandy was in the last episode of the first season as her usual character. The spat over the opposition memo was over.

But come the beginning of Season Two, and she was nowhere to be found. She was never mentioned again.

Ahem. It's Bartlet. One "t."

Actually, it's my view that she was killed at the shooting in Rosslyn, but no one really cared.

Actually the "Dr. Marvin Monroe Memorial Hospital" appeared in "Who Shot Mr. Burns, Part II" the first episode of season 7. This was the only evidence of his death prior to the mention in the clip show, later that same season.

Her father's absence was given a very quick explanation that he'd realized his dream of touring in the orchestra.

Topangas sister was older, so it can be assumed that perhaps she was away at college or something of the sort. Or maybe they just needed her for one episode.

Star Trek=TNG - Lt. Tasha Yar died toward the end of season one. Denise Crosby wasn't too happy with how her character was developing and asked to be released from her contract.

Smallville - Pete Ross got less and less screen time until he finally got written out. His parents were divorcing and he was moving to Witchita Kansas. From what I heard, Sam Jones III asked to be released from his contract as well.

She died, though. We know what happened to her.

However, IIRC, we never dicovered what became of Ensign Ro.

Pete's gone? Man, he was such a good character - the only one who knows Clark's secret and, therefore, the biggest threat to him - but criminally underused. They could easily have given him more (and more realistic) stuff to do.

Welllllllllll...not quite. She did disappear sans explanation, but when she reappeared in the last season to wrap up her character, we learned that she had enrolled in some sort of elite strategic operations training thingie.

So she could've been a disappearing character, and was for a bit, but she ultimately came back to account for it.

On Married... With Children, in addition to the character of Seven (previously mentioned), there was also the character of Luke Ventura. A recurring character, he was Al's fellow shoesalesman at Gary's during season one (and possibly two), and then just... disappeared.

A few tongue-in-cheek references were made throughout the run of the show, but no canon explanation was ever offered.

After Lowell went into the witness protection program on Wings, Sandpiper hired a paramilitaric maniac named Bud to work as their mechanic. I think he was a regular for one season, tops, before he was very steadily marginalized and finally just disappeared (leaving open the question of, who the hell is keeping up the planes?)

Not exactly the best series to question character disappearances on, but on Oz there was a Russian hit man named Kosigyn who was featured prominently in a handful of episodes and then was last seen being dragged away by guards after attempting to kill another inmate. We never saw him again, nor did any of the characters ever explain what happened to him, our only clue to his fate being that he didn't end up on the oft-viewed death row.

What about Miss Kitty Fantastico in "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"?

Personally I never bought Dawn's transparently gratutious reference to a tragic crossbow accident in one of the last season's episodes.

(My own theory is that Miss Kitty Fantastico was actually The First doing a little reconnaisance before making its move....
Think about it: did we ever see the cat and The First in the same scene? Of course not.) [Smile]
