A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Puck looks too much like Oberon to not be his child, is it possible Puck is related to Oberon if not his biological son?
I don't see much resemblance, frankly. Which is not to say that they may not be distantly related. But they're definitely NOT father and son, nor do I see a familial relationship playing any role in their dynamic.
I have been looking over Gargoyles fan sites and in the credits for some of the voice actors I have found the following:
Gargoyles: Brothers Betrayed (1998)
Gargoyles: The Force of Goliath (1998)
Gargoyles: The Hunted (1998)
After scanning your FAQs I am unable (or just blind) to find out what these are. Would you be good enough to tell me. Thanks
In the late 90s, Buena Vista Home Entertainment released the first season of Gargoyles on 5 home videos. I'll list the videos with the episodes they presented below:
1. GARGOYLES: The Movie: The Heroes Awaken
"Awakening, Part One"
"Awakening, Part Two"
"Awakening, Part Three"
"Awakening, Part Four"
"Awakening, Part Five"
[Note that this was an edited movie version of our five-part pilot, originally created for a special World Premiere screening in September, 1994.]
2. GARGOYLES: The Hunted
"The Thrill of the Hunt"
3. GARGOYLES: The Force of Goliath
4. GARGOYLES: Deeds of Deception
"Long Way to Morning"
5. GARGOYLES: Brothers Betrayed
"Her Brother's Keeper"
All of these episodes -- UNCUT -- will be available on December 7th, 2004 on DVD. Along with some cool extras.
Okay, so I'm sitting here watching the Halloween Gargoyles Marathon on Toon Disney when City of Stone comes on.
All goes well, until I notice another crazy edit-- the word terrorist.
When the Weird Sisters-as-little-girls are telling Goliath it was good of him to spare the terrorist, and warning him not to be like her, they cut off his response, "I'll never be like this terrorist," to, "I'll never be like this."
Not too bad, really, but they wouldn't let the Weird Sisters say it either. "We were not talking about this--" I dunno. Maybe a first time viewer wouldn't notice anything off... but I did.
Just thought you and the other folks around here might want to know. Toon Disney sure has its issues.
Sigh. Yeah. The notion that a single word becomes problematic, even when used correctly strikes me as an overreaction.
And yet... and yet....
If you put your mindset back to the days immediately following 9/11...
A little extra sensitivity is hard to complain about...
The Weird Sisters - "Avalon" & "City of Stone"
For me, the Sisters orchestrating of Demona and Macbeth's lives has always been about much more than just getting revenge against the Magus, or 'some petty strike on an island' as another fan put it. Certainly revenge was involved as it's in their nature - but had the Sisters not bound Demona and Macbeth, Demona would have died long ago and Xanatos would never have raised Castle Wyvern above the clouds, and the rest just plays out from there. Again the immutable nature of time and fate in the Gargoyles universe is made clear.
I don't think I've seen any comments on this from yourself though, so I am left wondering if no one has caught on to the greater scheme of things here, or maybe I'm just jumping to grand comclusions?
The key, I believe, to understanding the sisters is that they are simultaneously of three minds: those of the Graces, the Furies and the Fates. (And various mythy permutations of each.)
Phoebe represents Grace.
Seline represents Fury.
Luna represents Fate.
But all three are all three.
So cooperating with the Archmage suited their Fury persona directly, but also fit in nicely with the other TWO aspects of their personas.
When Magus gave his magic book to Finila (because he couldn't bring it to Avalon)Hpw the hell did it get to David
Long story. But it involves TimeDancer, Demona, Puck, Owen, Finella, Mary, Brooklyn and Xanatos.
Not sure if you have answered this but if you have I am sorry to have repeated it. In TGC and by the end of the original show that you worked on it is shows that Xanatos has reformed now that he has Alexander.
1) Is he really reformed or is it just another ploy of his?
2) Why didn't he have the mutates turned back into humans if he was?
3) Would the mutates want to be turned back into humans? Being mutates let's them to help others better than when they were human.
4) Why did Xanatos's go after Derek to make him into Talon? I know that it was not some vindictive plan of his against Elisa since you have mentioned before that he isn't the sort to seek vengeance on someone.
1. He hasn't reformed, but his priorities have shifted somewhat. He certainly feels kindly toward the Gargoyles, though that would never stop him from using them -- just from harming them.
2. I don't think he can.
3. Fang does not want to turn back. I think Talon, and maybe even Maggie and Claw have accustomed themselves as well. Though if presented with an actual bona fide opportunity to change back, it would be interesting to see if they took it.
4. Control. And means of control.
Prior to the rise of humanity, did gargoyles ever develop agriculture or animal husbandry on their own?
Gargoyle Beasts were domesticated.
This isn't really a question at all. I just found that Carl Johnson has made the 14-minute "Gargoyles Suite" available on his web site, and it spans all the music themes heard in the episodes. There is also an original African-inspired track entitled "Panther Queen", as well as the main title themes for the Disney and ABC series. (I think that these are the same as the CDs from one of the Gatherings, but I can't be sure.)
Anyway, I thought that you'd want to know that the music is freely available now, and I'd bet that a lot of readers will be downloading it :) The address is http://www.swanderfulmusic.com/MP3/Default.asp?q=f&f=%2FCartoon%2FGargoyles
(If that link is mangled, you can find them by browsing Carl Johnson's pages at www.swanderfulmusic.com)
Thanks for the news!
are there going to be any new gargoyles shows soon
Not soon, no. But someday, I hope.
I am from germany. And i am a great fan of Gargoyles. Can u say me where i can get a VHS or a DVD with all Gargoyles movies. (in german)???
my email adress: email@example.com
Nope. The first season will be out on DVD on December 7th, 2004. But I don't think there will be a German language track.
Maybe if it sells well...?
I checked the FAQ and several of the archives and can't find this anywhere. So please god, tell me I didn't miss it.
A while back I had a gargoyles activity book that said Brooklyn didn't like pizza. Then a little bit ago I read a fanfiction story that said Lexington was the one that didn't like pizza. So my question is, which one of the gargoyles is it that doesn't like Pizza? I know that's kind of a dumb question but I'm really curious now.
Originally, it was important to us that NONE of the Trio ate Pizza. This came from us being afraid that the Trio would be regarded as copies of the Turtles, who are pizza-obsessed. So I basically declared that during the first season -- NO PIZZA.
Now that the Trio is established, I'm less concerned. Frankly, I find it hard to imagine that they wouldn't like Pizza. What's not to like?
I heard *EONS* ago, that the Gargoyles series started out with (as fans referred to it back then) as a 40- or 80-page "Gargoyle Bible" on the 'rules' of gargoyles (including stone sleeping, capabilities, and the most minute little details). Is that still available? Where could I find it?
I still have it. I think someone put it up on the internet at some point. Check in the comment room, and hopefully someone can direct you to it.
Greg, have you or disney been contacted by any computer game developers or publishers with possibly making a game in the gargoyles universe for the PC or the consoles,(eg playstation2, xbox ect). Are you a computer gamer yourself and if so what games do you play, and what games you have played do you like the most. My faverote would have to be the awersome PC game Deus Ex, becorse amongsed other things the mood and the hi-tech dystopian future theme reminded me of the kickass gargoyles "future tens" episode.
I'm not a gamer myself. I did help Disney Interactive work on a Gargoyles game way back when. Nothing since. But I'd be very interested in helping.
You said Elisa and Tony Dracon had a history. What history was this?
Whoah. I thought September 30th, 2002 would never end.
Anyway, they've had cop/crook encounters in the past. I'm not going to go into the whole story here.
Is New Olympian society based on the Roman one with the plebs and the patricians and the Senate?
It's a mixture of Greek & Roman.
Is Taurus's role as security chief passed from father to son? If not then how are they selected?
Was Boreas elected to his role as leader of New Olympus or was it inherited?
Taurus' job isn't officially passed down from father to son. But Taurus did follow in his father's hoofsteps.
Boreas' was elected.
Could Avalon's magic make mistakes as Goliath suggested in The New Olympians?
Let's just say it's highly unlikely that Avalon would not send you to a place where you need to be. That doesn't mean you'll like it.
Were there gargoyles once in Norway? What happened to them?
They moved and/or were killed off.
Maybe Ragnarok had something to do with it.
Why isn't there snow on Avalon? I mean they have a dangerous volcano so why no snow?
It's a summer place -- by decree.
Why did Avalon send Goliath and Co. to Norway?
How did Odin know that they were there?
1. To return the eye to Odin.
2. He sensed his eye immediately.
