A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Dear Mr. Weisman,
Kind of been lurking the site for a week. Hopefully, I got the gist of the rules around here. First, I would like to mention that I recently watched the "Gargoyles" series (watched the whole series in a week) and love it. I kind of found the series from "The Spectacular Spiderman" (Spidey is so Charlie Brown of the Marvel Universe). Loving them both.
Ahem... anyways, I always have seen Lexington as a really nice guy, but his future self and clone self seem to suggest otherwise. Do both of these alternate versions of himself insinuate anything? Is he tempted to the dark side of the force?
My google-fu is weak so ignore if it is in the archives.
Thanks for the great toons. It fills in that little nerdy void.
Well, his future self was an illusion of Puck's, so I don't think it's trustworthy. And ultimately, Brentwood is an individual. Beyond that, I make no promises.
Hey man greg,
have you ever seen Steven Spielberg comedy series: Freakazoid? This series came out way back when, during the production of Gargoyles, but if you ever seen the second part to the episode 'And his name is fanboy', you'd probably be laughing in your seat. Steven did a big parody off of your series Gargoyles, staring Lawn Gnomes that change from stone during the day to flesh at night because of a curse. Man it's so funny, during the end of the skit, the Gnomes break of of their stone shells (and the lawn sprinklers come on) and the scream "WE. ARE. LAWN GNOMES!", just like Goliath did during the opening sequence. Man, so funny! If you haven't seen it, you need to check it out on youtube.
I haven't seen more than a soundbite of it, but I've heard about it.
Hey greg, what race is Elisa's family? I mean seriously, this is bothering me in the worse way. Her mother seems..black, her brother is definitely black, her father is Native American(?), and Elisa herself seems Hispanic! What's going on here? Their last name is 'Maza', and that sounds awfully Hispanic, but I just don't know....
care to shine some light?
Elisa's mother Diane is African-American (which most likely means she has some Caucasian in her as well).
Her father Peter is Native American.
She is, therefore, a mix of all of the above.
She's not Hispanic per se, and the name Maza is Native American. It may not be from the correct tribe, but it is at least Native American.
This one's about Demona's character.
I'm not sure if you've seen nostalgia critic's review of your series (he gave it 2 claws up), but during the review, he claimed Demona one of the great cartoon villains. She's much like Lady Macbeth with scales eh? But what I want to know is, was she ever truly good? We know she had a softer side once upon a time, but even then she was hostile to the humans' prejudice against her clan. She was double crossing her oath to protect the king back in the archmage days, and over time that hatred inside her grew 10 fold, as we know. So, was Demona just a natural born evil? A true villian? Or during your creation of her, did you ever once think that she was the honest 'Angel of the Night?'
"Natural born evil"? I don't think that means anything in this context. I think she had her ambitions and inclinations, but I don't think she was born to be a villain in an in-universe sense.
I was the one who just asked about a desdemona or iago aciton figure but there is something else i was very anxious to know does disney have any plans on putting any of my favorite gargoyles in any kingdom hearts games or possibly a video game of their own besides the one from like 12 years ago. i was thinking about mabey even a gargoyles game for Nintendo ds or psp that starts out during the war at castle wyvern and allows you to fight as a garogyle or a soldguier to assist the gargoyles and lets you play after they awaken 1000 years later and face off agains xanatos and macbeth and takes you through avalon and allows you to aslo play as elisa and any of the gargoyles.
Not to my knowledge.
I am a huge fan of the show i even have copied dvd copies of season 2 part 2 and season 3 the golith cronicals it broke my heart that they aren comin onto dvd but i had to have them i just purchased an action figure of coldstone and i was just wondering if by any chance they made a actiion figure of desdimona or my personall favorite iago? if so i will pay a lot for them
I don't think they did.
Any idea how many more copies of Season 2 Vol. 1 needs to be sold in order for us to see Vol. 2? And do you think there might be a chance we will see Gargoyles on Blue-Ray? Or atleast Season to be re-released but with episode introduction by you?
1. No. Frankly, I think that ship has sailed.
2. No idea.
3. Seems unlikely at this point, unless something significant changes.
First of all, I want to thank you for the...wonderful series that you've gaven EVERYONE that has watched it.
In Gargoyles 2198 or 2158, what ever. Are those going to be...in a series? I would love for that to happen. Or is it a comic book series?
It's whatever I can convince someone to do.
What voice actor would you have cast for Constance? Is her voice supposed to gruff like a Kathy Burke or elegant like a Joanna Lumley.
I don't know Kathy Burke. And I wouldn't choose Joanna Lumley.
I'm not sure I'd use the word "gruff". But I'd want her to have the chops to fit her visual.
I vaguely had Zoe Wanamaker in mind.
Demona is easily the most popular character on Gargoyles. Are you surprised by this or did you expect that she would be? Does it make you more conscious of how often you use her? Like Marlon Brando is Superman and Death in the Sandman comics?
I'm not sure I agree with your premise. Demona is certainly a popular character, but I don't know how you'd even measure who the "most popular" is.
But I like her, so I'm not surprised that others do. And, no, it doesn't really effect how I use her. Her weight in the canon and her own motives and needs drive her usage.
And your Marlon Brando/Sandman reference is lost on me.
Isn't Death Death in the Sandman comics?
And Marlon's use in the Superman movies has more to do with legal wrangling than anything, I thought.
