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.Read more ›

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 show has earned a HUGE fanfiction following, and justly so! END
