Gargoyles

The series was known for its complex story arcs & drama, a prime example being the controversial first-season episode "Deadly Force," which addressed the consequences of gun violence, including a graphic depiction of the wounds of a gunshot victim. It became deeply meshed with medieval history, particularly kings & princes from medieval Scottish history, & other European mythologies.

    The show was originally pitched as a comedy series. The basic premise remained the same: approximately one-thousand years ago, Gargoyles were not merely stone statues, but real flesh and blood creatures. But unlike the noble protectors of the final shows, these Gargoyles were mischievous troublemakers who frequently drove the local humans nuts. This development went through several versions before being scrapped in favor of the now darker and more serious tone of the show.

    Originally David's last name was Xavier but Greg Weisman worried that he would be associated with the Marvel Comics hero Charles Xavier/Professer X, who was then appearing in the animated X-Men series. He took most of the name Xanatos from the Greek deity of death Thanatos, but kept a similar sound to Xavier in it with the first initial. The character was also originally going to be the descendant of the wizard who froze the Gargoyles in their stone forms. (Wolf was eventually the character who was an enemy descended from an enemy of the past, Hakon.)

    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.
