1993 movie Coneheads was many things: unfortunate Dan Ackroyd vehicle, decade-too-late spin-off from Saturday Night Live, critically-derided box office failure. But now you can add "missed opportunity" to the list. For those who thought that there was never that much potential in the movie in the first place, all you have to do is look at Brendan McCarthy's designs for the movie to learn the error of your ways. See what you missed at the multiplex after the jump.

McCarthy, a former comic artist who's been providing storyboards and concept designs for movies like Highlander, Lost in Space and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles since the late '80s, has started posting some of his work on his new website, The Strangeness of Brendan McCarthy, including a glimpse at what might have been if Dan Ackroyd's inherent crapness hadn't ruined things.
