This video is actually the first three episodes of the first season in the "Gargoyles" saga and let me say that this was and still is a really breathtaking three part video of the greatest cartoon series that Disney has ever created.
Forget "Rescue Rangers", "Darkwing Duck" and even "Goof Troop", those are great cartoon series but "Gargoyles" to me throws all of those right into orbit around the earth in every category. This series took Disney by storm with a very deep and mystical storyline that blended the fantasy folklore of gargoyles and merged fantasy with real-life history in the series timeline.
In this episode entitled "The Awakening" the Gargoyles exist as a clan in Castle Wyvern in northern Scotland where they co-existed quite well, if a bit on the shakily, with humanity in the castle and protected the citizens from rule-breakers and/or enemy armies who would attack them. The Clan is lead by a young but extremely strong gargoyle named Goliath along with his second in command, his mate Demona. The clan however are attacked by a huge Viking army one night in the year A.D. 994 and most of the original clan are destroyed and only seven of them survive the horrible attack that night.
During a botch spell attack, the clan are put into a stone sleep with a spell that won't be broken until the 'castle rises above the clouds' and only then would the gargoyles be reawakened from their stone sleep. A multi-billionaire businessman named David Xanatos retrieves the castle by disassembling it and transports the gargoyles in their stone forms to atop his headquarters which dwarves every other building in New York City. The spell is broken and the Gargoyles awaken to a totally different world from the one they remembered from a whole millenium before.

Gargoyles is the most wonderful animated series I have ever seen. It was created for cartoon-lovers who want some action and drama, and gargoyles breaks the mold. The movie is excellent, yet it has parts that are shown on the show that were cut out. I think they should re-release the movie in it's entirety. The video,and the strory-line of the show are interesting and informative about ancient cultures and the writings of Shakespeare (though they changed it a bit to fit into the show) I love it! Buy it!

This is the most endearing cartoon show I've ever watched and they are finally giving the DVD treatment it deserves. Greg Weisman( the creator of the show)says if the "Awakening" 5 parter sells well enough, disney will release the etire series on DVD. Even though I'm almost 20 and in college, I will buy this whole thing in a heart-beat.Fans unite!... Go to

Gargoyles is the best cartoon i have watched ever. They did good storylines to make the episodes funny and keep you on the edge of your seats. It is be far the best cartoon ever made. Don't think they could have gotten a better cast. Strange and wierd that a majority of them are from "Star Trek".
It's dissapointing that Disney stopped producing it. It would have been worth while if they could have kept it going another 2-3 seasons.
Amazon doesn't have anymore of "Gargoyles, The Movie: The Heroes Awaken" in stock so If anyone knows somewhere else i can get it, could you drop me a line. I would really appreciate it

This movie and the whole series are simply STUNNING and one of the best drama-toons I have ever seen! Lighter-hearted than Batman, but far more serious than any other Disney cartoon. Very moving storyline. The characters are very rounded and believable: from the strong young leader Goliath, the funloving Brooklyn, Broadway, and Lexington, the wise ex-leader Hudson, the faithful Bronx, the understanding friend Elisa, to the evil Demona, Xanatos, and mysterious Owen.
This show has earned a HUGE fanfiction following, and justly so! END

This movie is really the opening episodes of the Gargoyles animated series, with some content editied out for length reasons I imagine. Anyone who has ever enjoyed a "serious cartoon" will fall in love with Gargoyles instantly. The episodes which compose this movie begin a saga which is incredibly rich and well-crafted. Gargoyles is quite a departure from the standard Disney fare. I don't possess the words to recommend this animated series strongly enough!

Now I marked this 5 stars but in reality I'd give the tape itself about 3. Let me first say that Gargoyles is a beautifully animated serise with a very good and well written story. It's a bit like batman accept more interesting. I wish Disney would promote this a bit more now by giving it a special DVD release or a theatrical movie. Now the only thing keeping this from 5 stars is the fact that this isn't actually a movie. This is merely the first 5 episodes you saw on T.V. with less footage. The end result is a story that's too fast paced and unbalenced. I wish they had actually made a movie or used all of the footage rather than just cutting the footage up. Some very entertaining scenes have been cut. One of which is a very funny scene where the Gargoyles see a kitchen for the first time and mess it up. I believe the scenes were cut to make room for the game at the end of the tape which was completley worthless. I still however recomend this movie because the story is so interesting as is the rest of the series. I would really like to see this on DVD digitally remastered and with the cut scenes restored so that the true beauty of this series can be realized.
