This sequel series done largely without the original creators' involvement showcases the further adventures of the Manhatten Clan. In this series, the clan now have to deal with a city that knows about them and fears them. This situation is made all the more difficult with the insanely fanatical Jon Canmore, now known as John Castaway, exploiting that fear to form the murderous anti-gargoyle militia, the Quarrymen. With their help of their powerful former enemies and now patrons, the Xanatos family, the clan must try to convince the human population that they mean no harm to the innocent. Written by

Most Gargoyles fans refuse to consider this sequel series, with the exception of the pilot, as part of the franchise's continuity. The original series creator who was only involved with the pilot, Greg Weisman, agrees and is currently writing a comic book continuation of the original syndicated series that removes the majority of events from this series from continuity.

I guess ABC was really desperate for a hit Saturday morning cartoon because while GARGOYLES: THE GOLIATH CHRONICLES is entertaining enough, it is not nearly as good as the 1994 TV show GARGOYLES. The first show was full of fantastic action, adventure, and humor. This one is just kind of more of the same except only half as enjoyable. It would've been nice if ABC would have kept this show on longer. Sure, it wasn't the best cartoon ever, but it gave me something fun to watch. I heard Disney is thinking about doing a GARGOYLES movie which I look forward to.
