It was both. They put him in make-up in the first BTTF 1985, but it barely registered on screen, and in the end was recognised as a waste of time. They decided to both remove the need for it and explain it away in BTTF Part II with a joke that was almost self-referential. "We're removing it because we didn't need it and nobody noticed anyway. But just in case, let's address it and justify it in-story".
