Gargoyles is an American animated television series that aired from October 24, 1994 to February 15, 1997. A total of 78 half-hour episodes of Gargoyles were produced. The first two seasons aired in The Disney Afternoon programming block, the third and final season aired in Disney's One Saturday Morning format on ABC as Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles.

Although the first two seasons were considered successful, Gargoyles did not live up to Disney's expectations as a commercial rival to Batman: The Animated Series.[1] This result, combined with poor ratings for the third season, led Disney to cancel the series.[2] The Goliath Chronicles aired its final episode on February 15, 1997.

Season 3: The Goliath Chronicles (1996–1997)[edit]

Disney cancelled the original show's syndicated run in 1996, but ABC immediately snatched it up, renaming it Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles. The revamped show, with a largely new staff of writers and animators, ran on ABC's Saturday morning schedule for a single season consisting of 13 episodes.

Following the events of "Hunter's Moon", the public is now fully aware of the existence of the Gargoyles; season 3 deals with the public's sometimes dangerously xenophobic misunderstanding of the Gargoyles' natures and intentions.
