    Believe it or not, Disney is finally going to release a Gargoyles DVD. This news comes Greg Weisman, Director of Series Development and Series Producer, at "The Gathering 2002," which is the Gargoyles yearly convention. There will be just one DVD at first, but if it is successful there will be more.
    Greg Weisman said the deal was just finalized to release Gargoyles DVDs in 2003
    By the sounds of it, this could be a 'best of' release. Same way Spider-Man: Ultimate Villain Showdown was released. Also, I just remembered that the first five episodes (The Awakening) could be a candidate for this DVD.

    My wife wanted this, and I think I do too. Good thing it's being released... but it better be in season sets, this series needs to be seen chronologically.

    I really doubt that Disney is going to release this in season sets. At least not to begin with. Like I mentioned above, either a best of or hopefully, the first 5 episodes of the series entitled, "The Awakening"

    I hope disney wakes up to the goldmine it's currently sitting on. There are tons of animated series Disney could release and make a mint off of. Beyond the collectors market, there are millions of parents out there looking for something they can occupy their kids with which doesn't require the parental guidance of much of today's childrens fare. I'm a big fan of gargoyles and I hope this series makes it out soon, I'd also love to see duck tales, gummi bears, tail spin, chip and dale rescue rangers... The list goes on and on. They'd have garaunteed sales from me on season sets of any of these series.

    I'm very excited about the idea of "Gargoyles" finally coming to DVD, but I'm really concerned about the statement...

    Jeremy, yes: Frakes, Sirtis, Dorn, and Spiner...with Trek film & TNG guest star alumni Paul Winfield and David Warner in there as well. And don't forget that Kate Mulgrew was in there, too.

    Perhaps if more word of this got out, Trekkers would line up and demand this series to get released in its entirety!

    Gargoyles was a cool series. I hope the people at Disney do end up releasing this in a season set instead of just a "best" of and so forth. The problem with a "best of" series is that very rarely are they the "best of" a show instead they are just what the companies that sell them think will get them the most sales.

    I know I may be waiting for a long time but I will wait for a season set ala TNG from Paramount before I buy it.

    Also, Uhura (I forget her real name [​IMG] ) was the voice of Elisas mother. [​IMG]

    Let's also hope that if they do release the original 5-parter, it's the full version - the one released on VHS was cut fairly severely (for example, any references to the eggs were removed).
