Show Summary

"One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of gargoyles. Stone by day, warriors by night, we were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years. Now, here in Manhattan, the spell is broken, and we live again! We are defenders of the night. We are Gargoyles!"

    i grew up watching Gargoyles back when i was 11 yrs old (i'm 28 now) and i can admit it's still one of the greatest 90's shows ever!! it's one of my favorites, and it always will be one of my favorites, i recently got to watch it back in March of this year when Disney XD was on free preview (i have satellite). so it was nice to catch one of my favorite childhood shows again.. =)moreless

  • Mix of Sci-Fi and Fantasy

    10
    This Disney after-school TV series had many multiple episode story arches. It's not what you'd expect from a Disney cartoon- it's darker, more dramatic, a great mix of sci-fi and fantasy. As the series progresses more and more mythical and Shakespearian characters pop up and many Star Trek actors provide their voices. From animation voice actor regulars like Thom Adcox-Hernadez, Kath Soucie, Ed Gilbert, Bill ***erbakke, Jeff Bennett and Frank Welker to more familiar faces like Clancy Brown, Edward Asner, Sallie Richardson, Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes and Keith David the cast is stunning. I stand by my 10-star rating for the story of these heroes!moreless
  • The dark and more mature side of Disney

    10
    Disney is known for creating happy and friendly TV shows, but that doesn't mean that they aren't dark either. Their first and only dark show, Gargoyles, was a successful answer to the growing popularity to Batman: TAS and in my opinion is one of Disney's greatest shows ever. The show is about Gargoyles who once long ago were defenders of the night. However a group of humans betrayed and destroyed most of the Gargoyles, now there are only 6. To save themselves, the leader of the Gargoyles, Goliath, made a human freeze him and his other Gargoyles in stone. For 1000 years they stay frozen until, a man named David Xanatos broke the spell and they live again. We then meet the other Gargoyles. Hudson, named after the Hudson River, is a wise old Gargoyle who still knows how to pack a punch. Lexington is a mechanical genius. Brooklyn is 2nd in command of the Gargoyles and a bit rebellious. Broadway is the comedy relief, but that doesn't mean he doesn't get serious. Bronx is the dog like Gargoyle who can't fly, but is quick and ferocious. Finally, Goliath, the leader of the Gargoyles. Even the villains are interesting, ranging from magical creatures like Puck and even Demona, a gargoyle who survived the purge 1000 years ago and was Goliath's love interest becomes evil after years of hatred toward humans. All the characters in this show are perfectly developed and we get plenty of back story about them and why they became the way they did in the show. The voice work is done mostly by cast members of Star Trek: TNG, and each one of them do a great job and everyone else does a superb job as well. The stories are very interesting and are very creative as well. While the show is dark most of the time, it does a good job of also being a bit light as well. The artwork is excellent and some of the best I have ever seen on a cartoon, you can feel the dark atmosphere as you see the show and the characters are drawn uniquely. The animation is also some of the best I have ever seen and there is never the same animation used again and again. Bottom Line, this is a must see show in TV. It has complex characters, gripping stories, and while dark, it can be light from time to time. See these defenders of the night if you can on the internet or find them on DVD and check out this gem from Disney.moreless
