OLAF OR BUST
Olaf’s primary role was to act as a medium for comic relief. Because of this I’m afraid that he would have zero purpose in ouat and that he’d just be a weird and deleterious addition to the show. Here’s why;
Although Zelena had cgi flying monkeys, they had a purpose in that they were used to do her bidding, and the fact that they never talked meant that the low-level cgi worked adequately well. The cgi wouldn’t be good enough to allow for good facial expressions for Olaf, or to capture his character/mannerisms. Also, since Olaf is predominantly a comedic character that would mean that the existing writers would have to adapt to do comedy (I’ll admit that I have no idea if they’ve done comedy in other projects), or they would have to hire new writers to do the comedy elements (I think we can all agree that although there have been some funny lines in the show, there has never been an attempt to do an Olaf-type character before), which wouldn’t be very economical.
You’re right when you say that it’s either ‘Olaf or bust’, but not in the way I think you meant it; if they do Olaf then they really are going to have to DO OLAF. Otherwise they’ll be ruining the character we’ve come to know and love, whilst possibly ruining the entire show itself.
I vote no Olaf. Instead I suggest having an honourable mention in the form of a pet named Olaf.
How about a bichon frise? ;P
