“Gargoyles” on DVD needs sales

I just read this
TVShowsOnDVD article
. For those who haven’t seen
it, Gargoyles was a remarkably mature Disney
cartoon, which had a huge teenage audience. It wasn’t

children’s entertainment. I’ve been putting off

    I nabbed S1 immediately upon release. It is everything a fanboy could want. I was waiting on S2V1 for whatever reason, but have since ordered it after having read the same article. Gargoyles is one of the greatest original Disney cartoons ever, and certainly deserves fan support.

    Please spread the word!
