Trivia
References many William Shakespeare plays with its character names: Queen Titania, King Oberon, and Puck from "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Ophelia from "Hamlet", Princess Katherine from "Henry V", and the title character from "Macbeth". In addition, the relationship of the various personalities of Coldstone mirrors the central characters of "Othello" and are named as such in the scripts. However, MacBeth's backstory in "City of Stone" is based more on the history of the actual King MacBeth of Scotland.

Was Disney's most popular cartoon show. Perhaps more than any other Disney production, the series has inspired an intense fan following. Disney acknowledged this with their selection of the show as their first animated series released for DVD retail in a season collection format. In 1997 there began an annual fan convention known as The Gathering of the Gargoyles. Fans shared costumes, fan-fiction and even had discussions to further develop the overall anatomy of the Gargoyle characters. The convention was officially discontinued in 2009.

Quotes
Goliath: One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness, it was a world of fear, it was the age of Gargoyles. Stone by day, warriors by night, we were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years. Now, here in Manhattan, the spell is broken and we live again! We are defenders of the night, we are Gargoyles!
