In anticipation of my Ramble on "Hunter's Moon, Part One," here's the first relavent memo I have. One thing to keep in mind is that I don't have everything from those days. And I certainly don't have electronic copies of everything. So the record I'll present in this and following posts is WAY less than complete. This is just stuff off my computer that I sent to Michael Reaves, but doesn't reflect all the hard work that HE put into things.
Anyway, note the date. This memo was produced in July of 94 (TWELVE YEARS AGO, YIKES!) before the series had even premiered. At the time we thought it was going to be a direct-to-video movie. My boss, Gary Krisel, had rejected CITY OF STONE as a direct to Video because he felt it focused too much on the villains and not enough on the heroes, i.e. Goliath and the Gargoyles. (He was fine with us doing City of Stone as episodes though, so we knew we'd be building off THAT.)

NOTES ON HUNTER STORY
Open in @1980.
Father and his three teen-age children: Boy, girl, boy.
He's after "The demon" that his ancestors have been hunting for a thousand years.
His own grandfather died fighting the demon.
His own father spent his whole life searching for the demon.
Now he's found her: Demona.
Oldest son is very gung-ho.
Middle Daughter is more neutral.
Youngest son doesn't like the idea.
Father puts on Hunter's mask and battles Demona. He gets Killed.
All three children now swear vengeance. Oldest son is still the leader.
In present, these three hunters still pursue Demona.
When they stumble upon Goliath and Co. they make no distinction between good and bad gargoyles.
One (or more) of gargoyles is very badly injured. (Though healed during daytime hibernation.)
Goliath swears revenge.
We need to involve Elisa in someway.
Oldest boy is eventually paralized from waist down by Demona.
He and his sister eventually come around to theme that the Price of Revenge is too high. Goliath also gets this message.
Demona and youngest son don't learn.
Probably want to show the original Hunter (Gillecomgain) in a brief flashback or two. Don't contradict anything that's in City of Stone, but don't reveal any details about his fate or who the second or third Hunter's were.
And that's all I've got....
