    It all starts out in a castle in 994 england being attacked by vickings. They are turned to stone by the magician who feels they betryaed the people there. They are turned to stone untell the castle rises above the clouds. The gargoyles reawaken 1000 years later when Xanetose buys the castle and places it ontop of his skycraper ( which comes up above the clouds, thus ending the curse). They awaken in Manhattan in 1994 where they meet a police dective named Eliza Maza. This is where it all began...



    This is one of my favorite cartoons EVER, they have never made another one like it before or sense. Its exciting and dramatic somewhat dark in place and totally unique. Its the best, i have seen Every single episode ( probably at least 3 times).moreless

    This is it, the episode that started it all in Disney's greatest cartoon ever!

    With a beautiful opening in both 994 Scotland and 1994 Manhattan, along with ongoing examples of how the show pushed the bar and was so great, proved that the opener of this magnificent five part series opener is perhaps the best in TV history. Beautiful animation (I dare you to name a show whose animation is better), nice action, superb dialogue and a great introduction to the characters. They let you know just enough about them and move slightly along so the surprises you're hit with later as the show progresses really keep you hooked to this show. The massacre (you don't get that from Disney very much) and even the blood shot were excellently done and the episode did a great job of setting everything up for the next episode(s).moreless
