This show originally aired from 1994 to 1997 on multiple networks including ABC in 1996. It was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation.
Combining melodrama, complex storylines and dark, almost Shakespearean-like characterization, Disney XD's Gargoyles weaves creator-producer Greg Weisman's vision into a highly entertaining animated series that has developed cult-like status.
Based on the Scottish legend of creatures that do their dirty work by night, then revert to stone at daybreak, Gargoyles enter the 20th Century by virtue of the purchase and relocation of their medieval castle to New York City by an American billionaire. Upon settling, the centuries-dormant Gargoyles come to life. Their struggles to adapt to an entirely new world provides most of the focus of the series, and with the backdrop of the Big Apple, the possibilities for mayhem are limitless.
Several noted cast members of the many Star Trek versions provided voices for Gargoyles, including Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis. Levar Burton, Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura from the original TV series) and Paul Winfield also appeared in recurring voice roles.
