I just signed the following petition addressed to: Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
Release "Gargoyles" Season Two, Volume Two on DVD
Gargoyles (1994-1997) was a ground breaking series from Walt Disney Television Animation. Based on an original idea from series creator Greg Weisman, and incorporating themes from classic myths and Shakespearean literature, the series was an instant success fueling the further success of the syndicated block of Disney animated shows known as The Disney Afternoon, and left a permanent mark on American culture.
In 2009, the popular web site IGN listed Gargoyles number 45 out of their Top 100 Best Animated TV Shows and in 2010, and was listed as one of Hollywood.com's "six cartoons that should be movies." It has been translated into multiple languages and shown in countries all over the World and has inspired radio plays and a number of fan conventions. It has been featured in Disney comics, and still runs in syndication abroad, as well as spawning merchandise ranging from toys to backpacks to clothing.
After years of being out of print from a few VHS releases, Disney released Gargoyles along with several other Disney Afternoon series on DVD. Without fan-fair the sets depended on word of mouth. Gargoyles received one and half season sets over two years with the second half of season two and season three to go, before the series was dropped due to 'Lack of Interest'.
We, as a collective body of fans, urge Walt Disney Home Entertainment to finally release the end of this treasured classic onto DVD. Let us enjoy the final 39 episodes, whether through the more preferred method of a standard retail DVD, as were the first two volumes, or simply via the DVD-on-Demand program. We feel the excuses for denying fans access to the end of this show must come to an end.
If Walt Disney Home Entertainment properly markets and advertises these final sets and does not have overly high list prices (two problems that plagued the first two releases) we know it will sell better than the previous sets. There is a strong fan base for this show and we are ready to demonstrate with our pocket books how beloved it still is, if we are given the opportunity. Thank you.
