Top Ten Ways Gargoyles Would be Different if it Were a Japanese Anime Series:

  2. At least two characters would have green, blue, purple, or neon orange hair.
  3. Owen would be named Brian J. Mason --- and he'd be dead by now.
  4. The Steel Clan robots would be armed with `scrambler' multi-warhead missiles and wave motion guns.
  5. Frequent use of the trademark anime `flying motion' backgrounds [oh,wait, we already have that...].
  6. At least one sailor-suited schoolgirl with magical powers and eyes the size of dinner plates.
  7. Demona and MacBeth would have forty-foot mechas and would level large sections of Manhattan every time they tried to kill each other.
  8. Matt would be on an all-consuming quest to avenge the death of his father at the hands of the Illuminati.
  9. Every other episode would feature a shower scene with Elisa or Demona.

Diane Maza's Top Ten Reactions on learning about the Gargoyles:

  2. "Is that what you've been tracking into the house these last few months? Gargoyle scat?"
  3. "You give them a TV and a laptop computer just for moving in, and all I get for Mother's Day is flowers and a card?"

  10. "Look, he's not married, he's got a good job, high moral standards, an impressive family history, and he's obviously crazy about you. Okay, so he's lavender and has an eight-foot wingspan; I can accept that in a son-in-law."

Top Ten Roles for Star Trek Alumni who Haven't (yet) Appeared on Gargoyles:

    Mike: Well, sure, but they weren't as goofy looking as you.

    Tom: David Xanatos... is... Doctor No.
  3. From "Reawakening":
    Xanatos: It's alive! ALIVE!!
    Crow: Seen it.

    Mike: Gene Wilder did it better.
    Tom: Ouch!
  4. From "Golem":
    Max: What if it doesn't like me?

Top Ten Reasons Owen Burnett Cannot Possibly be Puck, no Matter what Buena Vista says:

  1. So, Anastasia/Titania simply didn't *notice* that she had a child of Oberon in her employ?
  2. Puck, the Consummate Trickster, spends at least two years playing the straightest of straight men and doesn't go stark raving?
  3. Worse, he spends those years in the employ of an insufferably smug megalomaniac and not *once* does he get the urge to teach the guy a well-deserved (and extremely humorous) lesson?
  4. "You were on company time, Owen, and you were supposed to be on the job. I don't *care* if you were yanked away by Titania's Mirror; this is coming out of your paycheck."
  5. Why bother volunteering as a Cauldron-o'-Life guinea pig? He's already immortal; whatever happened to him wouldn't have proved a thing.
  6. Speaking of which: Oberon recoils from the tiny amount of iron in Elisa's handgun --- at a range of several meters, recall --- yet Owen/Puck can stand right next to a solid iron cauldron (a magical one, no less), and not even look slightly constipated?
  7. Puck, under Demona's orders, (presumably) turns Xanatos into a Gargoyle, and *doesn't* get fired for it?
  8. I dunno about you, but if I was going up against Coyote the Trickster, Puck is the first person I'd bring along. Whither Owen, then?
  9. So, Xanatos had the choice of a wish from Puck, and he *didn't* wish for immortality? In which alternate universe?
    and the number one reason Owen Burnett cannot possibly be Puck, no matter what Buena Vista says:
