Method to Madness Podcast: Gargoyles



Episode 115: “Jalapeña!”

Gargoyles is a must-see show for anyone who…well, anyone. It’s always been the overlooked bastard child of the Disney Afternoon, yet is the only member of that family to generate enough of a following to found a convention. If you’ve never seen Gargoyles, watch the embedded video below and duely proceed to program your DVR and order your DVD box sets.

It’s only once I began to edit this podcast that I picked up on Kevin accusing me of wanting to have sex with Elisa Masa because she is a 2D cartoon character. I originally assumed he was accusing her of being two-dimensional in character, which I hope in itself absolves me. But I mean, come on… You’d hit it, too.

In the Method to Madness podcast, Sean “The Grey Ghost” Ryan and Kevin “The Business” Gray discuss the great anime that you should be watching and the shameful anime we know you’re watching instead.

    Gargoyles is probably the only thing good about the 90s-Eisner-Disney Era.

    Now that Marvel is owned by Disney, and Disney is trying to go more Mature… I’m surprised Disney hasn’t thought about rebooting this franchise in this decade. If I were Disney, and trying to play it smart, I would make a reboot of the comic and cartoon, see how well it plays out, then work toward a full blown film.

    I think a film with today’s effects could be effective.

      They kinda did! Just a few years back, a few of the show’s creative team got together to revive the show through comics. The quality was good, but sales were a miserable disappointment.

      However, that was under a smaller publisher, Slave Labor Graphic. Last I heard, the creator, Greg Weisman pitched another comic series to be published under the Boom! label (a subsidiary of Marvel that now publishes Disney’s other comics), but I’m not getting my hopes up.

      We may have to wait for another 10 years to go by for it to hit Hollywood’s nostalgia trend. Then they’ll make a shitty CGI movie to pander to the 5-year-old children of the folks who first watched it when they were 5 themselves.
