Monday Movie Retrospective

October 24, 2016


Today, we will briefly look back on a TV show with movie-like qualities that made it a stand-out science-fiction fantasy cartoon that is enjoyable by kids and their parents alike.

Gargoyles is the story of mythical creatures, awakening after centuries of slumber in modern times, or 20 minutes into the future.

Conflicted character motivations combined with solid action and a rare combination of solid characters and a mix of science fiction and fantasy magic make this an enjoyably complex show, with lots of backstory, and enough intrigue to make it, well, intriguing.

It had a solid run from 1994 through 1996, a golden age in enjoyable, well-written cartoon shows, so you can now watch it in its entirety.
