[WMG: [Tommy Pickles wrote a Hollywood screenplay that originated in fuzzy memories of his childhood, but the film was reworked to become[Film/Gremlins]]

Gizmo was based on Spike, while the bad Gremlins were inspired by Mr. Friend and the tarantula Stu bought Tommy when Spike ran away. The overall concept for the film came from his grandfather Boris’s stories of the Dybbuk.

Tommy originally had the main characters as himself and his slightly younger brother, his parents, and his friends Chuckie and Kimi. His grandparents, cousin, and aunt also appeared in the film as supporting characters.

However, this resulted in a lot of rewrites by Hollywood suits, which Tommy was not happy with. The violent draft of the film with Billy’s mother’s head falling down the stairs was actually an early, much darker REWRITE of Tommy’s film. His original vision would have been much less misanthropic or dark than even the final cut of Gremlins. The execs decided to save Tommy’s concept of a “spider-like” Gremlin for a sequel, and distorted a line that described the Gremlins as ‘evil clowns’ and made the monsters full of slapstick. The original script also had another good Gremlin inspired by Reptar, but this character was deleted. They decided the story needed a clear human antagonist, and combined Charlotte and Angelica’s worst traits to create Mrs. Deagle. Tommy felt it was not fair to make two of his relatives into a one-dimensional villain, but things got worse. Dil was aged down to become Pete, because the producers wanted a little-kid character. They decided to make Kimi white and into the protagonist’s girlfriend. Tommy balked at the execs deleting Chuckie’s character from the film, because he was supposed to undergo a lot of character development and demonstrate courage. He was also supposed to have a sensitive monologue about always being scared since his mother died…which the execs turned into a joke about the death of the love interest’s father. The last straw was when the writers whitewashed the characters he based on his Grandparents, Boris and Minka, especially because he wanted a Christmas movie that showed not everyone celebrates Christmas, but it’s still a time for family. The script, written just after Boris and Minka passed away, was Tommy’s tribute to them. The Boris character was originally going to discuss the legends of the Dybbuk in the movie and compare them to stories of Gremlins from WWII. The studio felt this content made the movie “too ethnic”, would distract from the Christmas theme, and might also be too stereotypical, so the characters were reworked into the Futtermans. When Tommy was fired from the project, the Futtermans were killed off, but retconned into being saved when test audiences complained. By the time the film had been shot, the only characters who bore any resemblance to those in the original script were Billy, his parents, and Gizmo. The rest, as they say, is movie history.
