"And so it ends. Gargoyles chapter two. Or is it three? I've lost count." --Brooklyn
"A gargoyle can no more stop defending the castle than breathing the air."

[All I Really Need To Know In Life I Learned From Watching Gargoyles]
Sure, everyone knows a gargoyle is an architectural gothic ornament, cold, unliving stone, a "glorified drainspout."
Well, not exactly....
In Scotland, 994 A.D., the Magus of Castle Wyvern in mistaken anger and grief cast a spell on the gargoyles. Once living defenders of the castle, they slept as stone statues for a thousand years.... until in 1994 A.D. a billionaire named David Xanatos purchased the castle "lock, stock, and gargoyle," moving it to the top of his skyscraper in Manhattan. With the castle above the clouds, the spell was broken.... and New York City will never be the same....
Unsure of who they can trust in this strange new world, the gargoyles befriend Elisa Maza, an NYPD detective. With her help, they commence their struggle to survive.
With dramatic story lines, striking animation, fully developed characters, and an excellent cast (if you're wondering what Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, and Michael Dorn did after Star Trek: The Next Generation ended, this is the place to be), the show has gathered a dedicated following.
Gargoyles first aired in syndication on October 24, 1994, and ran for two seasons, sixty-five episodes. On September 7, 1996 the show made its third season debut as part of ABC's Saturday line up. Retooled for a younger audience and renamed Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles, the final thirteen episodes were the subject of intense debate among the show's vocal fan base.
The original Gargoyles series continues to air in syndication on the Toon Disney cable network. If you are new to the series, there is an episode list at The Gargoyles Fans Web Site which lists the episodes in story order, as well as an episode guide here at The Aerie which also lists the original airdates and the writing and production credits.
The gargoyles live.
Semper Statuae Alati!
me with my Latin. Roughly translated, I think the above phrase means "Winged
Statues Always," or, Gargoyles Forever!)
And thanks, Cernunnos!
