The Cartoon Hero Presents: Gargoyles (First 5 Episodes)

When the castle rises above the clouds, a hero will rise again...

Title card by Ironshadows:


  1. All I'll say since you haven't seen it is you're not wrong to ship it. The magic side of Gargoyle lore takes a lot from Shakespeare's more fantastical plays. This was a show meant for older kids but still kids and the way they tell these stories shows it. It's Greg Wesiman's first big break and he would go on to do Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice, both shows that worked with older kids and adults. You really should check the series out.

    As for Goliath Chronicles, it didn't bother me as much. There is some toning down for a Saturday morning show that the weekday syndicated show didn't have to deal with but I think there are still some good stories in there.

  2. The only thing I'll comment on is that Xanatos is lying about the rookery eggs only through lack of knowledge at this point in the series. He doesn't learn about them until later via a different arc.

  3. I was thinking of the Superman Theme. Live-Action and Animated.

  4. I think it was The Captain of the Guard, not The Magus, who went to Hakon.

  5. This show originally premiered on October 24, 1994. Because you were born on June 1, 1990, you were 4 years old when this show came out. You were probably busy watching Preschool shows at that time. The show concluded on February 22, 1997, so you were 6 when it ended. I was born on June 5, 1994, so I was 4 months old when it premiered, and I was 2 when it ended.
