Gargoyles on DVD - Disney confirms "tentative" release

After years of waiting, it looks like fans of the outstanding 1990s cartoon Gargoyles may finally get the rest of the series on DVD.

A little background about these releases - Disney put out the entire first season on DVD in 2004. In 2005, we got Season Two - Volume One. It made sense to break it up because the second season was over 50 episodes while the first had been only about a dozen. I bought both and was delighted at the chance to experience this show once again. Fans waited with excitement for the second half of that season...and waited...and waited. Years went by. Creator Greg Wiseman told fans at a convention that Disney had abruptly scrapped plans for the release (Season 3 is also unreleased, but Wiseman wasn't involved with that one and it is typically considered as outside of the canon by most of the fans).

Last year, rumors began to circulate that Disney might finally release the rest of Season 2. I wasn't aware of these rumblings until recently and decided to contact Disney on my own. Here was the response.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us! We truly appreciate your interest in Gargoyles.

At this time, we have a 2012 tentative release set. Although there is no additional information currently available, we would be more than happy to share this great suggestion with the rest of our team for future consideration! We truly appreciate the feedback from all of our guests!

You may also be interested in visiting our website at www.disneydvd.com for updates and new title announcements.


There's no official listing for it on that DisneyDVD site and the use of the word "tentative" suggests that this is not a done deal yet. So if anyone reading this would like to see this on DVD, I'd suggest sending an email regarding your interest to disneyinfo@disneyhelp.com. In my email, I wrote about my fond memories of the show, how I would be sure to buy it when it came out and how it still has a lot of loyal fans who would do the same. If they get enough emails like that, we might finally get this in a few months!

On a more personal note for this blog, this series would immediately become the next subject of the "Nostalgia Series" if this works out.

A tentative release date is better than no release date. Hope Disney follows through.

When is Gargoyles Season Two, Volume Two and Season Three going to be released so that I can complete the series and enjoy watching Gargoyles on DVD?

I've been waiting for Vol 2 since Season 2 Vol 1 was released!
*fingers crossed that it materializes*

easily one of the best cartoons.

Is Gargoyles Season 2, Volume 2 and Season 3 materialized on DVD now for release this year?

I don't have any new information since contacting Disney. The writer of that email said "tentative" so it's not a done deal yet. Writing to them more is a good idea. I suspect that if this does happen, the release date will be close to Christmas because there's not all much of 2012 left. If I find out anything new, I'll write another update.

Please get all of your friends and everyone to email Disney which is disneyinfo@disneyhelp.com to show our interest and ask them to release the rest of Gargoyles Series on DVD of Season 2, Volume 2 and Season 3 and call Walt Disney Home Entertainment at 1-800-723-4763 to request Gargoyles Season 2, Volume 2 and Season 3 on DVD.

I've been waiting very patiently for Disney to release Gargoyles Season Two, Volume Two and Season Three on DVD.

Jonny Modlin said...

We haven't heard any news from Disney about the releases of Gargoyles Season Two, Volume Two and Season Three on DVD for this year and have two months left till 2012 is over. Is Disney ever going to release Gargoyles Season Two, Volume Two and Season Three on DVD?

Norphen said...

If anybody is still following this, I did email them and they mentioned that they would release the next volume on June 25th 2013. Lets hope that holds truth.

Any word on season 3? Will we have to wait years on it like we did the last half of season 2?
