Gargoyles is probably the most under-appreciated Disney property out there; a brilliant 90s animated show that’s achieved serious cult status over the last few decades.
The show had a surprisingly dark tone compared to Disney’s other works at the time, and focuses on a clan of valiant Gargoyles that are betrayed by humans and turned to stone in 994 Scotland.
The clan is woken from their sleep in 1994, when the castle is moved from Scotland and put on top of a skyscraper in New York.
Gargoyles had a fantastic cast of characters, both heroes and villains, and its complex storytelling and arcs received quite a bit of praise. You can certainly compare the show to the other cult classic Batman: The Animated Series, as they both have similar aesthetics and tones.
The show ended in 1997 and, sadly, since then we’ve only seen comic book series. It’s beyond time for Gargoyles to come back, whether that’s a Disney + series or a film.
To make matters even better, Jordan Peele, director of Get Out and Us, has expressed interest in rebooting the franchise.
