They say that you have to do bad work before you can do good work. Not just one piece of bad work, but ''[[SturgeonsLaw tons]]'' of it, some so bad that it puts ''TheEyeOfArgon'' and ''Film/BabyGeniuses'' to shame.

But sometimes [[SoCoolItsAwesome the work was good]], yet those in control would rather let it rot in a back vault forever while pulling down any and all online copies. For example, not many people know that a famous early-television personality hosted [[ThePriceIsRight a mega-popular show]] for five years, or that [[WheelOfFortune another mega-popular show]] had anybody at the helm other than the current duo. Sometimes, the shame happens because a work was FairForItsDay, but contains [[ValuesDissonance concepts, themes]], or [[OnceAcceptableTargets character archetypes]] that [[SocietyMarchesOn simply aren't considered acceptable in the present]] (that, or the work [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop espouses values that were unacceptable even at the time the work was created]], because the author was in a ''really'' bad mood that day). Another possible reason is that the work heavily promotes a viewpoint that its author no longer holds.

It stands to reason that this trope is not [[TropesAreFlexible all black and white]], there are hundreds of ways someone can regret the work they did and much of it may not have anything to do with the final product. An OldShame may come from having bad memories of the TroubledProduction, loving the experience but perplexed at the direction it took or greatly disliking the {{Typecasting}} (or other attention) they received after the fact. It's actually rather common to make [[FireForgedFriends extremely close friends]] while working on an infamously bad tv show or movie.

Whether it's {{fan fic}}tion or original published work, some really bad stories have been written (this goes for other art forms too, sometimes just as badly). And even though you have to do bad work before you can do good work, the bad work still exists and the creator has to deal with it. Sometimes it's published to wither and die on its own; most of the time, it isn't.
