Gargoyles are fugly stone characters popular in medieval architecture used as water spouts and to scare away evil spirits. Sometimes they come to life and eat people or save New York from villains.
In the mid 90's, Disney decided that not every show they produced needed a tall skinny character accompanied by a short, fat character to play for laughs who bumbled along beside an unassuming hero, nor did every show necessarily have to appeal to 5 year olds or rather slow teenagers. So they created Gargoyles.
Known for having story arcs that you actually had to follow from one episode to the next and being a place where Star Trek: The Next Generation actors seemed to go to die, the show was popular even though it included copious Shakespearean references.
It's also worth noting that Disney did include a fat guy and a skinny guy for comic relief in the forms of a gargoyle named Broadway and another named Brooklyn. Also scantily clad gargoyle chicks to make young teens feel even more confused than is entirely normal.

Gorgoyles are usually found in architecture directing water away from rooftops or in the living rooms of people who fancy themselves mysterious (possibly even vampires) usually holding the remote controls or some Oreo Cakesters, because even vampires need snacks.

Despite the charm of gargoyles as something dark and romantic, they're basically glorified plumbing fixtures.
