“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!”
Who remembers the Disney show Gargoyles? Goliath, Hudson, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, and Bronx. This fall, Gargoyles will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary. Gargoyles first aired in 1994 and was canceled in 1996. A few days ago, Disney posted a news flash on their blog: Gargoyles is Streaming on YouTube, but some fans already knew that. Over a year ago, Disney shows YouTube channel uploaded all three seasons of Gargoyles, which includes ABCs revamped show ‘Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles‘ (1996-1997). Fans can now relieve their childhood memories.
I loved Gargoyles as a teenager! The bonus part of watching Gargoyles as a Trekkie, was hearing my favorite members from the ‘Star Trek” series voice the characters on the show.
