Surprise, surprise a lot of my favorite animated series have been celebrating so many years since their release. Another one of those that is ready to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary is Gargoyles, which first debuted on ABC. Since then it has become a cult favorite that had even got the attention of the popular horror writer and director Jordan Peele that reportedly pitched a live action film to Disney, who at the time weren’t very interested. With the fan base that Gargoyles has it’s a mystery as to why the Mouse has not pulled the trigger on a new version of the property.
Since the 25th anniversary is right around the corner, comicbook.com spoke with series star Keith David, who was the voice of Goliath the protagonist of the series. He talked about how that was one of his favorite roles and also about how he didn’t understand how the series could be cancelled after only three seasons. “You know, those of us who were involved from the beginning… I’ve always wondered why they stopped it in the first place,” said Daivd. “You know, he was absolutely one of my very, very, very, very favorite characters. I’ve always maintained that when I grow up, I want to be like Goliath.” So would David be up to reprise his role as Goliath if the series was ever brought back? “[We’ve wondered] why we haven’t come back to a reboot,” said David. “I mean, I would love nothing more than to revisit Goliath.”
The series first hit ABC in October of 1994 and it had a total of 78 episodes. An interesting thing about this series is that it had a very long second season that ran for 52 episodes. What is considered by most as the third season was called Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles. Although Disney was not feeling Peele’s live action Gargoyles film, they might want to think about bringing the animated series back, especially now that they have a streaming service that they need to pump content into. Although they are already doing a one heck of a job bringing all kinds of properties together to make it very irresistible.
