If you were young in the '90s, you grew up with some fantastic cartoons, like Batman: The Animated Series, The Tick, Superman: The Animated Series, Eek! The Cat, Doug, Animaniacs and Freakazoid. You also grew up with some middling cartoons that are fun and fine for nostalgia's sake, but just don't hold up like the other 'toons, like Darkwing Duck and Spider-Man. Gargoyles is almost certainly a member of the latter camp, but for those that liked it, it understandably holds a special place in their hearts that only an action show about talking gargoyles in Manhattan could.

So it's hard not to leap to conclusions after reading that, according to Heat Vision Blog, Disney is jumping the gun with a new "untitled gargoyles project." This is a premature move on Disney's part certainly, considering that as the article points out, they're pursuing more live-action movies about magic because of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub and producer Jerry Bruckheimer's new personality-free fantasy (yes, I have seen it). This means that, in anticipation of a successful box office weekend, Disney is jumping the gun and possibly making a gargoyles movie, maybe even a Gargoyles movie. If it is a Gargoyles movie, I want Nicolas Cage to come back with his Chia-hairpiece and play all the gargoyles, especially the fat one and whatsherface and the little guy, too.
