Gargoyles is one of the most underrated cartoons in history, and should be mentioned alongside greats like Batman: The Animated Series way more often than it is. It concerned a group of ass-kicking gargoyles who get turned into stone in medieval Scotland and are awakened in modern-day New York City. While there, they make it eight episodes before one of them accidentally shoots a police officer with her own gun by accident. This show was not fucking around!
It also had two incredible villains: the guy with the coolest name in the history of both fiction and nonfiction, Xanatos (voiced by Jonathan "Commander Riker" Frakes), and the formidable female gargoyle Demona (voiced by Marina Sirtis, aka Counselor Deanna Troi), who is still a fucking role model as far as I'm concerned.
But that was over 20 years ago. One of its co-creators, Greg Weisman, has a history of getting his projects cancelled before their time (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, the recently revived Young Justice), so if you're gonna bring it back as a cartoon, throw him a bone and let the magic happen.
Or you can follow the current trend and do it as live-action, with state-of-the art CGI and an exploration of current events intermingled with the supernatural elements of the show. The original cartoon was full of commentary on the terrible ways that people in power can treat those different from them. It seems like there might possibly be ways to make that relevant.
In fact, there is a rumor that Jordan Peele is pitching a reboot of the show to various outlets, and the prospect of Peele and Gargoyles coming together makes me so excited that I may have done another cartwheel just now. I'll neither confirm nor deny this.
