This interesting thought has been on the back of my mind for a few years of watching early and late episodes when I watch the reruns.

I like it!

For the first few years, Elaine brushed her hair back, it was light brown and her personality was giddy to say the least. Her voice was

Has anyone noticed that she became a mean person in the last couple of years?

Her hair was pitch black. She was 10x meaner to George than she was before her transformation.

I think it had something to do with her job at J Peterman, but that's just an assumption.

Yea I always noticed that too. She seems more open and happier in the earlier seasons.

It is like Elaine was a totally different person from the beginning to the end.

I wonder if the change was just Julia Louise Dryfuss getting older or was this a new direction that Larry David wanted to take Elaine in.

In Outing : Jerry tells elain "you have been developing quite a bit of acid tongue lately ".. maybe this is something larry david had planned for...

Well there were hints as to that such as in "The Stock Tip" when she comtemplates hiring a hitman to take out her boyfriend's cats.

I thought that was just my imagination. I just got the first 3 seasons of Seinfeld (absolutely awesome)and watched them all. Yes, she truelly is crankier in the later years. I wonder why. I like her better in the earlier years. Very Happy

It was just the evolution of elaine. Look at Kramer in the early episodes, he changed more than anyone and for the better I might add.

She was so hot with her straight, dark hair with those bangs (sitting next to Vegetable Lasagna on the plane) She's just Jimmy's type (or else we'd kill each other... one of the two). Razz

Jimmy gets on a plane with Elaine and that guy's coming back in a bodybag!

I think Jimmy would have a problem with Susan B Anthony too.

It's the Clara Nightingale Syndrome.

elaine definitely evolved over the years from a cute, little girl from Baltimore to your common New York skanky, bitter, twisted bitch. but it was so gradual that i didn't really notice it until after the series ended. but i still love her!
