    Great list but you should’ve included Vincent from Beauty and the Beast. The show only lasted three seasons and was canceled in the early 90’s, but to this day maintains a strong cult following.

    Christy Brown was not deformed, he had cerabal palsy. Not the most PC of mixups.

    Just a note: The image for The Fly is from the stage adaptation and not from the movie staring Jeff Goldblum.

    Great list, but I’ve have replaced Benjamin Button with every character from ‘Freaks’ and put Quasimodo at #1 because he started the trend (in movies, anyway, with the 1923 version).

    I think you may want to reconsider your title of “deformed” if you are including characters based on actual people…. you may not mean to offend, but you do.

    Interesting how none of the characters on this list are female. In fact, there are very few instances I can think of in film which depict deformed women in any favorable light (only stereotypical witch characters, etc.). I can’t help but wonder what this says about the perception of negative physical traits and gender bias. Perhaps it is more difficult for audiences to accept and see past deformed female exteriors than they do males?

    Please don’t mistake my intentions as detracting from this great list of complex characters who were intriguingly depicted in their respective films, who all show us there is more to humanity than what is seen on the outside.

    Some of these people really existed and to call them deformed is a disgrace
