Showrunner Steven Molaro has revealed writers purposely added some slight changes to the youngster's character.
"When we were writing that pilot we didn’t want to just write him as adult Sheldon and have a kid just say it," he explained on a previous I Saw That Years Ago podcast.
"We liked to lay Easter Eggs from The Big Bang Theory in Young Sheldon.
"As annoying as adult Sheldon can be, he can get away with it so we decided he’s (Young Sheldon) not this person yet – we made him a lot more naive," he said.
