This isn't a question, but I read some discussion on the terrorist attacks of 9/11 here. It might interest you to know that in City of Stone Part 1, in its current airings on Toon Disney, have both sentences where the word "terrorist" is used cut.

The original lines:

Goliath: I'll never be like this terrorist.

Luna: We were not talking about this terrorist.

The edited lines go:

Goliath: I'll never be like this.

Luna: We were not talking about this.

Greg responds...

Wow. They didn't just cut lines, they changed them. I wonder how? Did they bring Keith and Kath in to re-record? Did they use sound alikes? Did they cut and paste words from somewhere else? A lot of effort.

I wonder if they're still airing the adjusted version on Toon Disney & Jetix.

I really like Gargoyles the show, and have recently gotten my need to watch it back. Is there a site where i can download episodes, if so, what is it? thanks

Greg responds...

I have no idea. Sorry.

You can watch the show on either Toon Disney or ABC Fammily.

And a DVD of the first season is due out by the end of the year.

Hi Greg. I started watching Gargoyles on Toon Disney over my younger sisters shoulder a few weeks ago and haven't stopped since. Alas I've discovered that Toon Disney are only showing about half the total number of episodes, so there are probably gaping holes in my understanding of the overall theme (I get the impression there is one - correct me if I'm wrong;-).

First off, very well done. I'm very impressed. Not only are they extremely well written and animated, but there is subtlety of dialogue and expression! In a Disney Cartoon? Indeed.

Secondly: just finished City of Stone. Missed part of it the first time round. There's only one thing I can say... "Oi! The tragedy!" If Demona is not one of the most cathartic characters created in the last century I don't know who is! Despite her brutal treatment of Goliath it's hard not to empathise with her, or to enjoy her episodes perhaps more than the rest (is this unhealthy?;-). Macbeth is the perfect counterpoint, another very good character and equally engaging in his own way. However, I am frustrated. I glanced down an episode list and couldn't find anything further devoted to them. How does their story conclude? I must know!

Thirdly: somewhere I posted an e-mail to a Gargoyles site and the owner told me a film had been on the cards for the last five years, but with no apparent progress. Is anything known that you could tell? I did wonder if, when the reply mentioned it might be live action, whether this might change as a result of the successes of CGI films in recent years. I wonder which would best suit the genre - CGI or live action? With CGI the original voice cast could be used, of course.

Sorry for the long message, and thanks for indulging a new initiate.

Greg responds...

First off, as far as I know Toon Disney regularly showed EVERY episode (in order) except "Deadly Force". (And I understand they've started showing that one too.)

I'm not sure how glancing at an "episode list" (a list of titles?) would reveal anything about the contents of our episodes.

Of course, you posted this in 2002 and it's 2004 now, so I'm assuming that if you had a real interest you've seen all the eps by now. But, yes of course we did more episodes with Demona and Macbeth after City of Stone. Many more.

My latest information is that the Live-Action movie has been put on hold. After five plus years of Touchstone actively pursuing a script, they finally gave up.

Hiya, Greg. I can't get into the comment rooms right now, so I'm hoping that you and the other fans will read this in on the submission page, since it'll be another nine months before you recieve this to comment on. ^_^ Anyway, I've got...

****FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!!****

On Continental Airlines for the month of June, they will be showing "Awakenings, Pt. 1" as a follow-up to "Monsters Inc" on many of their flights! I caught it flying eastbound from Newark to Houston. THEY'RE SHOWING GARGOYLES ON AIRPLANES!! This is fabulous! Could this be a sign of a future DVD release, or even...*gasp* a new season?!

Here's a quick list of the flights it'll be on:
*North America to UK, Hawaii, Spain, Latin America
*All Domestic flights within the US & Guam to Hawaii
*North America to Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Japan
*Italy, Brazil, Portugal, China to North America

These listings are from the Main Cabin Attractions magazine I got on the plane.

So, if any Gargoyles fans plan on being on these flights for the month of June, encourage your fellow passengers to watch "Monsters Inc" and to stay tuned for the show afterward!


Greg responds...

More like 22 months.

That is kind of amazing. And I never heard about it otherwise. Still, you have to wonder about them showing "Awakening I". They show the first part of a multi-parter. One that ends with a pretty massive 10th century cliff-hanger. It's a great episode, I think. But an odd choice for a flight.

Greg responds...

These days, (nearly two years after you posted, so I hope you checked your local listings and didn't wait for my answer) I believe, the series airs on both Toon Disney and ABC Family. Again, check local listings for days and times.
