GARGOYLES is the animated story of a group of fantastic superbeings who protect mankind from danger. Their story begins in medieval times, when Gargoyles were stone statues by day, but were transformed at sundown into fearsome, living creatures. GARGOYLES are a clan of winged beings, honorable creatures who, in a violent and brutal age, protected a Scottish castle from Viking assaults, until they were betrayed by a sorcerer's spell. They were frozen in stone through night and day, and passed through the centuries.
When a wealthy businessman purchases the Gargoyles' ancient Scottish castle and rebuilds it high above the clouds atop his corporate headquarters in present day New York City, the spell is broken. The Gargoyles sleep in stone by day, but at sundown awaken to become majestic heroes of the night,
defending the city from modern day menaces. The series carries positive moral messages about friendship, teamwork and doing good.
