List Of Gargoyles Episodes

A total of 78 half-hour episodes of Gargoyles, an American animated television series, were produced. Gargoyles was created by Greg Weisman, produced by Greg Weisman and Frank Paur and aired from October 24, 1994 to February 15, 1997. The first two seasons aired in The Disney Afternoon programming block, the third and final season aired in Disney's One Saturday Morning format on ABC as Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles.

In the first season, which premiered with the five-part pilot episode "Awakening," the survivors of a clan of 10th-century Scottish gargoyles are brought back to life in modern-day New York City, having been frozen in stone sleep for a thousand years. With the help of police detective Elisa Maza, they learn about the changes that have taken place in the world and begin to figure out where they belong in it.

The second season premiered on September 4, 1995. Roughly half of these episodes focus on a small group of characters – Goliath, his daughter Angela, Elisa, and Bronx – who are sent on a series of quests by the magical island of Avalon, informally dubbed the "World Tour." The third season, subtitled The Goliath Chronicles, premiered on September 7, 1996. Because of major staff and writer changes, series creator Greg Weisman considers these episodes non-canon and instead has chosen to continue the storyline with the comic books published by Slave Labor Graphics. The only exception is the season premiere "The Journey," which Weisman wrote himself.

Although the first two seasons were considered successful, Gargoyles did not live up to Disney's expectations as a commercial rival to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. This result, combined with poor ratings for the third season, led Disney to cancel the series. The Goliath Chronicles aired its final episode on February 15, 1997.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or episodes:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
