“The Mirror” (September 11, 1995)
Yes, we said there was no episode this week, but then we realized that we had all these bonus episodes just lying around on Patreon, so here is one of those. BTW, listen to more queer readings of old cartoons here for just $1 a month.
It is technically possible that someone could have watched Gargoyles and not realized that it was one of the horniest animated series ever. We think this episode — which has a very fey Puck teaming up with Demona to turn our heroic gargoyles into humans, loincloths still in place — helps demonstrate just how much homoeroticism was going on, both in the minds of viewers and the minds of people
Want to spend more time with Goliath? Then listen to the What a Cartoon podcast’s take on this very same episode of Gargoyles. (We will assert that ours is at least marginally gayer.)
Read the Polygon article about the extended Gargoyles universe that could have been. Also read about the plans for the live-action movie.
When did English-speakers decided that fairies = gay? Also read about the difference between gargoyles and grotesques. (This show should technically be called Grotesques.)
