What made you decide to make Broadway male, when you'd originally had him a female? I personally think it works better this way, but I'm curious.
We were afraid to have a female character who loved to eat and was overweight. We were afraid that various groups with all sorts of agendas would attack the show, missing the forest for the trees.
"Why are the only two female gargoyles in the show evil and/or fat?"
Plus, we were constantly being told that the series would only appeal to boys. And that boys don't like female characters. Both of these notions are dopey. Particularly the second one. (Can you say "Lara Croft".) But if someone hammers you with a notion often enough, it's hard not to subscribe to it a bit.
I'm not proud of our cowardice, but I think Broadway became a great character, and now I wouldn't go back and change for the world.
