Gargoyles was an American cartoon with many unique aspects, mixing science fiction, fantasy and romantic elements with epic and complex story arcs spanning three seasons. 78 episodes were produced. After cancellation, the story was continued in a series of comic books.

Canon

In medieval Scotland, a clan of Gargoyles are cursed to turn into stone until their castle rises "above the clouds." Hundreds of years later, mysterious billionaire David Xanatos buys the castle and moves it to the top of a skyscraper in New York. The six gargoyles must now adjust to the strange new world around them, with the help of NYPD detective Elisa Maza.

Star Trek connection

Many Star Trek actors provided voices for Gargoyles characters, most notably Jonathan Frakes and Martina Sirtis as Xanatos and Demona.

Fandom

This article or section needs expansion.

This fandom largely predated fandom's shift to livejournal. The fanfiction was largely het and gen; see also Gargoyles Fanfiction Archive.

David Xanatos inspired the name of TVTropes' infamous Xanatos Gambit.

Original Characters are very popular in this fandom due to gargoyles characteristics.

Multimedia zines & Crossovers

The complex characterization and epic story arcs of Gargoyles made it appealing to many fans who ordinarily would not have watched (or written fic for) an animated series; Gargoyles fanfic, often crossovers, often made appearances in multimedia zines where all the other fandoms were live-action.
