Storyline

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 (Scott Cleverdon), 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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

Most Gargoyles (1994) 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 wrote a comic book continuation of the original syndicated series for Slave Labor Comix that removes the majority of events from this series from continuity.

User Reviews

Unworthy of its parent series.
22 April 2001 | by Victor FieldSee all my reviews

In this followup, the existence of Goliath and his clan is no longer a secret, and not everyone is happy with this. Not least me.

Not because of the setup, but because of how it's treated - as well as a noticeable toning-down of the stories (no room for such truly chilling moments as the scene in the first series where various Gargoyles were smashed to pieces while in their stone state), the animation was much inferior thanks to it being farmed out to Nelvana (yep, the people that gave us "The Care Bears" and "Flying Rhino Junior High"). Even Carl Johnson's stirring theme music sounded like a victim of weakness in its new version.

I did like the concept of the Quarrymen (and the line where the leader of the Quarrymen tells an underling called Maxwell "Remind me to give you a silver hammer" was pretty good for those who got the joke), but all told this is, as Wayne and Garth would say, not worthy.
