    Does anyone know if he was supposed to reprise his role as Bib or not in TPM? I would've loved to see him back! Even though it was only like 10 seconds.

    Probably because the character's appearance in TPM was an afterthought. That and he is supposed to be younger. Although I would argue that because of the extensive makeup and latex involved to begin with, Carter could have been made to look younger and it would have worked. It's probably because it wasn't an important role and only a few seconds long, plus extensive makeup was involved to the point where any actor could 'hide' beneath it and play the part. But it's the thought that counts, after all Kenny Baker was not really necessary yet they included him when needed as R2.
