The animated Gargoyles series ran for three seasons from October 24, 1994 to February 15, 1997, and although it flew under the radar a little at the time, it has since developed a cult following and a loyal fanbase.
Despite being produced by Walt Disney Television Animation (for the first two seasons, at least), the show wasn't known as "Disney's Gargoyles" until it arrived on the Disney+ streaming service last year, and creator Greg Weisman has now explained why that was.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Weisman revealed that Disney "was afraid to put its name on the series back then," adding that "technically we were Buena Vista's Gargoyles."
Weisman didn't elaborate, but we assume Disney were hesitant about putting their brand on the show because it could get pretty dark and dramatic at times - at least for a "children's" animated series.
Fans have been clamouring for a fourth season for a long time, but it's highly unlikely at this stage. However, the story did continue in a 12-issue Slave Labor Graphics comic series.
"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!"
