Dear Greg,

I was wondering, do you know of a way I could contact Victor Cook? I know you worked with him on Spectacular Spidey, and I wanted to ask him a question concerning his latest work, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated ( which is a show I highly reccomend should you have time). If you can help, I'd appreciate it.

Greg responds...

Well, obviously I know how to contact Vic, but I'm not entirely sure how to put you in touch with him. I also don't want to set a precedent and/or start making a habit of becoming a clearing house for fans to go through me to ask questions of other professionals.

So I think your best bet is to contact him via Warner Bros, where he's working on Mystery Inc.

Hiya, Greg! Just watched "Terrors" for about the fifth time, and am officially declaring it my favorite episode so far of the first season. Kudos on the beyond-awesome representations of Hugo Strange, Icicle Sr., and the Wall herself.

In any event, however, I'd like to take a moment to return to some of your previous work...or rather, something that it has spawned. Over the past several months, fans of your series have used "Religious Studies 101" as a jumping-off point to start a role-playing community on the social networking site Formspring, with each player taking on an account(s) on behalf of a character from one universe or the other and answering questions from other users accordingly.

While I would not advise you to actually take a look at the site itself (as while the community has produced some really great and enjoyable work, it's still fanfiction, if in a rather unconventional format), I couldn't resist using this opportunity to find out a nice little nugget of info from each of your characters: what they all think about YOU.

...Yep, as silly as it seems, I've spent about six months asking each and every player their answer to the query, "What is your opinion on Greg Weisman?" and recording their responses in the S8 Comment Room. And now that every single response is in (and I've edited the list to avoid any responses that might hint at an outside idea), I'm presenting them all to you now.

I hope that you find the whole of them amusing; I know I did. :D


Goliath: Who?

Elisa Maza: I loved his work on "Captain Atom."

Okay, I admit it, I love comic books.

Hudson: I prefer Celebrity Hockey.

Brooklyn: "Young Justice" kicks ass. I watch it with Gnash, Broadway, Lex, and Angela every week.

Lexington: I don't know how he put up with so many people asking him about my future mate....

Broadway: He writes some of the best shows on TV!

Angela: Oh, he's a magnificent writer! I love how he brings Shakespeare into every one of his shows in many different ways.

Coldstone: Isn't he responsible for that show that Nashville, Brooklyn, Angela, and Lexington always watch?

Coldfire: I watch some of his shows with Nashville, Brooklyn, Lexington, Angela, and Broadway...I enjoy a storyteller who is respectful towards all religious beliefs.

Katana: I do not know him.

Nashville: He's cool.


Fu-Dog: Arrr?

Matt Bluestone: Greg Weisman? Nashville was talking about him just the other day; that and some show called "Young Justice." From what I hear, Weisman is one clever individual.

Officer Morgan Morgan: He's that truck driver Mysterio attacked last year and Spider-man pulled him out of the river, right?

I read about him in the paper...*yawns*

Oh boy...I did NOT get enough sleep last night...

David Xanatos: I would love to acquire him for my Pack Media division.

Owen Burnett: A very talented and creative individual. Mr. Xanatos has charged me with acquiring him for our Pack Media division. Unfortunately, he seems quite personally invested in his current project at Warner Bros. Animation.

Fox: He would have been a great addition to Pack Media Studios.

Alexander Fox Xanatos: Apparently pop was trying to hire him away from Warner Bros. Don't blame him for not leaving, Young Justice is pretty kick-ass. Robin's my fav.

Demona: He is a human.

Thailog: I'm thinking of starting my own studio. I might just hire him.

Shari: Greg Weisman is a storyteller...and a good one. I think we're very much alike. I'd love to meet him and trade stories. Maybe I'll get to meet him if my boss is serious about hiring him to develop a new show.

Brentwood: greg wiseman smart

Doctor Anton Sevarius: The man certainly understands DRAMA!

Sir Peredur fab Ragnal: I like him.

Duval: I don't know him. Edmund Tsabard however, is part of our organization.

Quincy Hemings: I recall ol' Edmund saying a few things 'bout him. He didn't like him much...which means this Greg must be a rather decent guy.

Falstaff: He's a truck driver, right?

Points: My name is Points, he killed my father, prepare to die---Just kidding.

Pistol: ...

Bardolph: *BREATHS FIRE*

Mistress Quickly: Young Justice is entertaining...I like Kid Flash, he amuses me.

Mistress Doll: Ever met Edmund Tsabard? He's far more fun--and interesting--than that stick-in-the-mud Greg Weisman.

Macbeth: A fine bard and storyteller. My old friend, Will, would take to him instantly.

King Arthur Pendragon: I have not met this man, but I have heard nothing but good things.

Sir Griff: I'm having an existential crisis here.

Merlin: Oh yes...I do believe in God. What was your question again?

Lady Blanchefleur: I've heard all about this 'Edmund Tsabard' character he seems to dislike so much.

John Castaway: I believe that I share a name with his younger brother.

Coldsteel: Why should I care?

Coyote 6.0: I do not know him.

Wolf: Hack writer.

Jackal: His shows are so pretentious.

Hyena: That guy thought he was too good to write for our show. What's wrong with simple plots that are all about punching and kicking things? But no...Mr. Stuck Up there has to have "plot twists" and "character development" and all that other high and mighty crap.

Well, Michael Bay is the king of the box office, and no one gives a crap about...err...anyone who ever wins one of those lame awards. So, shows like ours for the win! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The Tasmanian Tiger: I hear he sounds just like Osborn's lackey Donald Menken. That could come in handy at some point...

The Director: I am unfamiliar with him. Edmund Tsabard on the other hand is one of our high-priority targets.

Robyn Canmore: His sister has the same name I do.

Dingo: I love that guy!

Matrix: A database search indicates that he is an American Animation Writer. Is often confused for Edmund Tsabard who is wanted by Interpol, and as such Greg Weisman is often detained by airport security.

Yama: He's been to Ishimura once.

Fang: Never met him, but that Edmund Tsabard is a good pal O' mine.

Gunther Sturluson: I don't know any wise man, but a man named Edmund Tsabard passed through here a few years ago. He tried to lock Papa and me in the cave too.

Rory Dugan: Big fan, just wish more of his shows got released on DVD in region 2.

Natsilane: Didn't he live on a street named after our island?

Fara Maku: *Briefly changes back*

I admire my fellow storytellers...

*Transforms back into Panther-Form.*

Travis Marshall: I don't really watch television except for the news.

Doctor Jay Sato: I enjoyed his work on the dub of 3x3 Eyes. I think he's quite talented.

Terry Chung: I love "Young Justice". I hope we get to see more of Hawkgirl; I've always been fond of Hawkgirl.

Amanda Chung: Terry liked...likes Young Justice.

Officer Tri Chung: Used to have a roommate by that name.

Street Thugs: If he comes through our territory, he's going to have to pay the piper.

Talon: He's working with Sevarius!! ARE YOU HELPING HIM?

Delilah: Is this someone I should know about?

Claw: :D

Thug: I like him. He's a good guy, and loves his kids.

Erin: I feel like I know him from somewhere... Didn't we meet him at a truck stop one time, Benny?

Benny: Yeah, Erin...I think we did...

Or maybe we just remember his name from the Young Justice credits..

Zafiro: I do not know this Amigo.

Obsidiana: I refer you to my mate's answer.

Kai: I do not know him, but a dishonorable man by the name of Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura a few years back, asking about Paris...

Sora: I do not know him either, but as Kai said, Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura some time ago...the beast actually had the nerve to ask me to model for him. Yama decided to introduce the pig to his katana.

The man lives...but is forbidden to enter Ishimura again on pain of death.

Una: He is a human. Hopefully NOT a Quarryman.

Leo: Don't care right now...

Constance: Isn't he a writer?

Staghart: He's the bloody Joss Whedon of Animation, what more needs to be said?

Lunette: Got hooked on Young Justice once it got here.

Old Pog: I have no idea who that is, you young whipper-snapper.

Princess Katharine: I dinnae know him. Should I?

Tom: I dinnae know this man...

Gabriel: I have never left this island, so I do not know this "Wise man."

Ophelia: I don't know, who is he?

Boudicca: *Cocks head quizzically, as if to ask..."Who's that?"*

Lord Oberon: A mortal man. Nothing more. Although I did meet him during the 1,001 years. I had a weakness for comics in the 80s and watched him put his own "Thumbprint" on Watchmen.

Not that he knew who I was.

Lady Titania: He is interesting, as far as humans go.

The Puck: Ah, now there's a storyteller who's been accurate about more things than that Shakespeare fellow ever was.

The Weird Sisters: We will consult the Scrying Cauldron...Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!

Ah yes, he is a human bard with great potential.

Anubis: He will die.

Odin: A gifted storyteller, but a mortal one...so like most, inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.

Coyote the Trickster: An excellent Trickster in his own right...

Raven: I know the street he grew up on quite well. An amusing trickster, for a mortal.

Anansi: I love a good storyteller...

The Banshee: I care not about these mortals!

Lady of the Lake: A mortal bard, much in the vein of Malory or Shakespeare.

I liked W.I.T.C.H.

Nought: ....

Boreas: I have not met any humans other then Elisa Maza and Terry Chung. I'm afraid I do not know enough of this individual to form an opinion.

Taurus: A human writer who is fond of the bastard murderer Theseus. I do not care for him.

Talos: Records indicate that he is a human writer of some note.

Sphinx: That sounds like a human name. Is that a human name?

Kiron: Who is that?

Helios: Taurus isn't too fond of him.

Ekidna: He is a threat to New Olympus, like all humans.

Proteus: I like all humans...they interest me...

The Stone of Destiny: His Destiny is an interesting one...

The Holy Grail: He is worthy to seek the Grail, should he accept the Quest.

The Phoenix: Tssseeeeeeeeeerrrr!!!!!


Spider-Man: Didn't he write that song "The Will To Love?" I love that song. Oh, and "Young Justice" kicks ass too.

Peter Parker: "W.I.T.C.H." was pretty awesome and "Young Justice" kicks ass!

Gwen Stacy: I loved "W.I.T.C.H." I even dressed up as Nerissa for Halloween about two years ago.

Harry Osborn: My dad says real men don't watch cartoons.

Mary Jane Watson: I would voice act in one of his animated series any time. I'm actually just a tad jealous of the talented lady voicing Black Canary in "Young Justice."

Flash Thompson: Hmmm... *remembers watching the second season of W.I.T.C.H.* Um, never heard of him.

Sha Shan Nguyen: "W.I.T.C.H." was a lot of fun, and Flash and I have been waiting for new episodes of "Young Justice" for a while now.

Sally Avril: Never heard of him! Is this some kinda geek thing?

Rand Robertson: S'cool. I like his shows. Sally didn't like watching cartoons, so I have some catching up to do on Young Justice, I only caught the pilot cuz' she was out of town that weekend.



Betty Brant: I don't know about Weisman, but Edmund Tsabard came through New York last month and rocked my world.

Ned Lee: I interviewed him about Young Justice once. He kinda reminds me of one of Betty's friends.

May Parker: Oh, he's that nice man that I met at the play the other evening...

Captain George Stacy: I remember sitting down with Gwen to watch the latest episode of W.I.T.C.H. when she was younger. Things seemed a lot simpler back then.

Doctor Ashley Kafka: His characters are always so fascinatingly complex.

The Green Goblin: He writes the best villains in all of animation. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Norman Osborn: I don't think I've ever heard of him.

Emily Osborn: I do not watch cartoons.

Doctor Octopus: An incompetent hack. Now Edmund Tsabard, there's a real writer!

The Vulture: Didn't he tell me that I'm old once?

Electro: "Young Justice" rocks, just wish Red Arrow appeared more. He's cool!

Sandman: Who's that?

The Rhino: Who cares? I just wanna crush that stupid Web-head!

Kraven the Hunter: He would not survive the Hunt...

Mysterio: He creates awesome animated experiences and doesn't afraid of anything.

The Terrible Tinkerer: Met him once, he tried to buy the license to my Homunculi so he could make a cartoon about them.

The Homunculi: MAMA! MAMA!

Venom: We loved the second season of W.I.T.C.H.

Yeah, we like W.I.T.C.H.! Anybody want to make something of it?

Tombstone: I do not concern myself with second-rate writers.

Hammerhead: Never heard o' him.

Shocker: He works for Osborn, doesn't he?

Silver Sable: I had to spend twelve years of my life managing what remained of my father's business... I did not have time to watch cartoons. And with daddy back in jail, I still don't.

Chameleon (in the guise of Norman Osborn): I've already answered this question, so stop wasting my time. I've got a company to run.

Black Cat: I don't know him, but I have modeled for Edmund Tsabard.

Roderick Kingsley: I have no opinion on Weisman. Edmund Tsabard, on the other hand, designed a cologne for us that he promised would be a true aphrodisiac. He was right, but it was so effective that the F.D.A. refused to approve of it.

Tsabard was fired, and the cologne is only available in Thailand now.

The Hobgoblin: What kind of man is too shallow to admit to enjoying a well produced cartoon every now and then? I rather enjoy the subplot in "Young Justice" with the Light. Mysterious individuals hiding their identities and working towards their goals is a concept I find appealing.

Colonel Nick Fury: Never met him, but S.H.I.E.L.D. has been trying to take down Edmund Tsabard for years.

Jessica Drew: Captain Atom was a great comic.

Thor: He would be a worthy addition to the Warriors Three. They would have to change their team name, though. I'm working on a concept I like to call the "Warriors Four".

Loki: I would have loved to see his take on me.

Doctor Doom: He helped create "Max Steel," so Doom will...admit that he is a "cool guy."

General Thunderbolt Ross: He's a fine writer but personally, I prefer that Peter David fella.

Deadpool: Greg Weisman? Didn't I run trucks with him? No, that guy called himself Edmund...or Eddie...or Ed. No, he is vengeance, he is the night, he is GREG WEISMAN! No, he was sent to Earth from his dying world, and under the yellow Sun he has powers beyond any mortal man. No, wait, does he have radioactive blood? Can he swing from a web? He does whatever a spider can. He's Greg Weisman! No, that's not right. Oh wait! He did that show about those guys with wings that saved people! I liked that show...why did they ever cancel it?


Behemoth: Who?

Montmarte: I have never heard of this Monsieur Weisman.

Montparnasse: Hmmm...I am not certain...the name seems familiar...

Would you pass me that Case of Self-Indulgence please? I think that it would go perfectly in this soup...

Angelique: I do not know many humans...and the last one I met...a man named Edmund Tsabard...made me very uncomfortable...

Left Bank: *HAPPY BARK*!!!

Diabolique: He is a human.

Thomeheb: I prefer Edmund Tsabard...He just has that...Down home touch that reminds me of Gay Paree!

Count Dracula (from Stoker's "Dracula"): Another mortal author who seeks to disseminate my secrets to the masses.

Maleficent (from "Sleeping Beauty"): I like Walt Disney better.

Dr. Facilier (from "The Princess and the Frog"): Man keeps gettin' the shaft.

Don Karnage (from "Tale Spin"): His cartoons are most amusing to me.

Sarah Williams (from "Labyrinth"): I like some of his stuff, moreso when I was younger. I'm more of a Henson girl though.

Jareth the Goblin King (from "Labyrinth"): A decent storyteller, not quite on par with the mortal Jim Henson.

Buffy Summers (from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"): I did use to watch W.I.T.C.H. with Dawn.

The Doctor (from "Doctor Who"): Never met him personally, but heard good things. If you think what he's done is impressive, you wait until you see what he's going to do.

Kim Possible (from...well, "Kim Possible"): I loved watching W.I.T.C.H.

Avatar Aang (from "Avatar: The Last Airbender"): I've heard good things about him.

Gwen Tennyson (from "Ben 10"): I liked W.I.T.C.H., especially Will.

Aquaman (from "Batman: Brave and the Bold"): Certain projects shall be seen through or the Brothers Warner and I shall have "words".

Death (from Neil Gaiman's "Sandman"): I loved W.I.T.C.H. Too bad it seems that all the shows he does get cancelled too soon. Gives me a bad feeling about Young Justice; I like Miss Martian on that show.

The Spectacular Spider-Pony (SpecSpidey's Peter Parker crossed with a pony from "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"): My cutie mark is him and Lauren Faust bro-fisting.

Greg responds...

Uh, wow. Some of these go over my head, but...

Can you define your idea of true sentience?
Greg responds...
Probably not. But I'd start with Descarte...
If you can say "I think therefore I am" and grapple with its meaning, as opposed to its mere pronunciation...
Well, that's a starting point.

I wont say it isnt painful to read people that still thinks positivly about Descarte and his ideas toward other forms of life. Animals may not think the way we humans do, but they still do. Descarte also said that animals seemed to suffer pain, but they didnt. You agree on that too?

Im sorry, but it was painfull to read this considering what gargoyles represented for me when I was growing up.

Greg responds...

Okay, stand down on the pain.

You're taking an off-hand comment too seriously. I NEVER said I thought animals don't suffer pain. That's patently ridiculous. I wasn't endorsing even a fraction of Descartes philosophy, just GIVING AN EXAMPLE.

But thanks for interpreting it in the worst possible way.

Hey! As a fan of Gargoyles and of the Nostalgia Crigic, I was just wondering if you ever got around to seeing the review that the Nostalgia Critic (Doug Walker) did of Gargoyles? While usually he bashes everything about every show and movie he reviews, (even the ones he likes) he surprisingly gave a pretty generous review to Gargoyles. Actually, that's the reason why I started watching the show.

Greg responds...

I have seen at least some of them. And I do always appreciate nice notices.

As the conspiracy buff that I am, I found a few references to the Erisian's Law of Fives on Gargoyles (most of which from "Revelations") that I would like you to bear in mind:

a) Mace Malone's key number was 23 (2+3=5).
b) Matt's key number was 13 (23-5-5=13; or 5+5+13=23)
c) Elisa and Matt work on the 23rd precinct;
d) and the most creepy of them all: this episode is the 36th to be produced, which means that by subtracting the 13 episodes of season one, it becomes the 23rd produced episode of season two!

I was wondering if these references were intentional or are just coincidental.

You've made it clear that you won't be giving heights for most of the characters, but you did mention in a January '08 response that you thought of Xanatos as being about six feet tall. I am a fan of numbers. Would you object to fans (me in particular) calculating heights rather than leaving them vague?

I thought you might like to know that somebody did a humorous comic strip adaptation of Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur" for his webcomic "Litbrick", which, in the final instalment (Bedivere returning Excalibur to the lake) mentioned that Arthur was borne away to Avalon, where he slept until being awakened in an episode of "Gargoyles". Here's the link to it:


I thought you'd be pleased to see the series still being remembered after all this time.

It's a nice shout out.

Hi Greg,

I'm a big fan. I work in South Korea teaching English and I thought you would be interested in your creations' progress over here.

I did some research on the internet and Gargoyles: The Movie and some season 1 episodes were released on VHS over here. What a collector's item those would be? The official translated name of the show is "Champion Goliath", but happily enough online Korean fans just call it "Gargoyles."

Channel surfing, I did see The Spectacular Spider-Man on the cartoon channel, 5:30, Saturday morning. That's actually a good time, since Korean children have Saturday school and 5:30am would be just the right time they're waking up.

Keep up the good work and hopefully I'll see Young Justice in Korea.

Hi Greg! I have a question about the Manhattan Clan. I know this took place in Colorado but... what would the Clan's reaction be to the Columbine High School shootings in 1999? I imagine Broadway or Hudson would have read about it in the New York Times. Thanks for your time.

Being the huge fan I am of you, I'm always curious about your work beyond Gargoyles (even if coming across the work can sometimes be difficult for me for whatever reason). I think one thing that's always fascinated me is Rain of the Ghosts. I understand that it was done as a Radio Play during one of the Gatherings, but seeing as the Gathering is now over (until someone new steps up to organize it or a new con), would you be willing to disclose information about it or post the script itself?

Greg responds...

No. I'm still trying to sell it in one form or another.

I was rereading "Quidditch Through the Ages" (a small book put out by J. K. Rowling a few years ago as part of a support to a British charity group) last night, and came upon a passage that mentioned a Quidditch match between the Toyohashi Tengu (a Quidditch team from Japan) and the Gorodok Gargoyles (a Quidditch team from Lithuania) in 1994. Now, this is probably just a coincidence (I don't know if Rowling's even ever been that aware of "Gargoyles"), but I thought that you might be amused at the notion of two teams with those names having a match in the very year that "Gargoyles" premiered.

Greg responds...

That is very cool. Thanks.

Dear Greg,
First off, just wanted to say that I love Gargoyles; great show, very inspirational in my own work. That being said, here's my question:

If you recall, Doug Walker of Nostalgia Critic fame added lyrics to the Gargoyles theme a while back. This time, he has released a full fledged review of the series as the Nostalgia Critic (Which, unsurprisingly, is a very positive review).-http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/nostalgia-critic/8726-gargoyles
My question is, does Walker express the kind of things in his review that you had hoped would result from Gargoyles (ie, is his review the kind of review you would have been hoping to hear when Gargoyles first came out)?

Greg responds...

We had many good reviews when Gargoyles first came out. I liked NC's review too.

(I can't believe I'm actually being asked to review the reviews! ;P )

what does roman numeral lxm stand for

Greg responds...

It seems an incorrect form to me. L being fifty, I believe, and X being ten, and M being a thousand. It would seem to indicate 1000 - 60 = 940. But no self-respecting Roman would write it that way. I'd think 940 would be written CMXL. But I'm hardly an expert.

i have loved gargoyles for a long time. I have seen all the episodes and has inspired me to write a book. But with my own twist and characters. Do u think useing the same location as the tv series is copying your work?

Greg responds...

Uh... well, not that I want more specifics, but it really depends on how many specific touchstone points you're using. I hardly have a monopoly on either Gargoyles or Manhattan, but if you're doing "Gargoyles in Manhattan", you're already treading pretty darn close. You put them atop a skyscraper, you're in very dicey terrain. Frankly, if you have to ask, I'd guess that, yes, you're too close to copying us.

In any case, I can't get very enthusiastic for you no matter what you're doing. I'm glad we've inspired you, but I'd rather we inspired you to something way more your own than something that is close enough that you are merely bringing your "own twist and characters" to the project.

If this is merely intended as fanfiction, fine. But if you have some desire to release this commercially, than I'd rather you didn't compete with me on my turf, using work inspired by my show. Does that sound selfish?

Hey Greg, may i ask you something? What would you do If Disney decided to put Gargoyles In Their Kingdom Hearts Series, or they and Allan Moore decide to Put Gargoyles in The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen? If you know what those series are? Would you want to have anything to do with it? I know they won't be considered canon, but would you want to work on it, after all they're your characters and you're with them to the end, would you want to help with those series, like you'll guide the others on what Goliath would do or what he wouldn't do, or you know just try to put them in the Universes of those two series? What would you Do?

Greg responds...

Well... I'd be all for Gargoyles going into Kingdom Hearts, and I'd be happy to work with those folks. Unfortunately, no one has asked.

As for, LOEG, that's seems an even more unlikely hypothetical. But what the hell? If Alan and Disney somehow made a deal ... and if Alan wanted my help... well, both scenarios are just nonsensical, but, yes, I suppose I'd be game to play along.

Hey Greg, just thought I'd clarify something I read in one of your recent responses.

On the 14th of March you wrote "I'm not sure I know what 616 means". As I understand it in the context of Marvel's fictional multiverse, Earth-616 refers to the mainstream Marvel Universe that read about in the comics every month. As opposed to the various alternate universes like Ultimate Marvel and those old issues of What If? The term was allegedly first coined by Alan Moore in an old Captain Britain story.

Dear Greg Weisman,

I had a thought and would like to hear youre opinion. I had been to a site that listed cartoons from the eighties (Such as Thundercat, the Littles, and Bravestarr) and began to compare them to todays cartoons series. I wil admit that I don't normally watch cartoons, but I sometimes see the cartoons my young cousins watch and from what I can tell most of todays cartoons are sacrificing content for modern animationj techniques and political correctness. Admittedly, the snippets of the Avatar series, shows that it is one of the more unique series, but most other shows are either copies of older series (Spiderman, Batman, X-men) or possess very little complex plot.

I am not trying to insult you or accuse you of anything. I still think Gargoyles is one of the best young kid shows out there and one of the things I liked about the show is that it was one of the last shows that truly had a morale lesson (such as guns are not toys and there are always consequences for your actions)but alot of the cartoons shows I see seem to emphasize shallowness and I think encourages children to act spoilt and do what they want. For example, in many cartoon shows, such Fairly Odd parents, the main characters parents and adults in general are shown to be bumbling fools, and I saw an episode of Dexters laboratory that emphasized that Christmas was about materialism instead of spending time with family.

I hope I did not offend you and I admit that I don't normally watch television. I just want to hear your opinion.

I think in pretty much any era there are great shows and crap shows.

Hey! I asked you what your favorite rides are at Disneyland and when you said a Small World and the one where you go into the snowflake, I had to write back. (I might as well put in here that we were at Disneyland over Spring Break and it was great; the scavenger hunt made it even more interesting). For the snowflake one, I asked my parents and they said it was called the molecule ride. They said there was some sort of microscope involved. I think that's the ride where Star Tours is now. I know this because they pay tribute to the molecule ride by putting the microscope on the Star Tours ride. I don't know if you've been on the Star Tours ride or not, but when you first take off in the space station and drop for the first time, look to the bottom right corner and you'll see the microscope on the screen. I didn't think it'd be a big deal, but I looked for it, and sure enough, there it was!

Now for the Small World. I'll never be the same since the last time I rode it. I got on with my family and I ended up in the very back seat. I stepped in and water poured in over the edge and got me soaked! I had no idea why until I looked ahead of me and saw that there were 3 men who were over 300 pounds each in the middle seats. You'd think the people working on the ride would've caught this, but they didn't. We got into the first room and our boat stopped. I could hear the boat scraping the bottom of the ride. Every time someone moved, more water sloshed into the back of the boat. The people sitting on the sides of the boat had to grab the sides of the ride and push the boat along. It took us over 45 minutes to get to the end of the ride. There were no boats in front of us and a lot of boats held up behind us. When we finally finished the ride and heard the song "It's a small world after all…" over 20 times, all the people in the boats behind us started clapping and cheering while we took turns giving bows and waved as we crossed the bridge into the Small World store. That is why I won't get on the ride for another 10 years.

Thank you for you time.

Greg, this is my first time posting here, but I've been a fan of the series for a long time. I was wondering if you have ever spoken to anuryone about getting a Gargoyles level put into a Kingdom Hearts game. The games feature various Disney worlds, and many people play them that have probably never heard of the show before. If "Gargoyles" were to find its way into one of these games in one form or another, it could spark an interest with a whole new group of people, which might lead Disney to realize that there is still plenty of potential left in the series. Also, I'm not sure how all the rights stuff works, but the games are currently produced by Buena Vista which might make things slightly less complicated.

An Ask Greg Helper responds...

Greg Weisman says:

I think it would be great, but I have no idea how to make it happen. Don't even know whom to talk to about it. If Disney or Square or whomever decided to include Gargoyles, I would hope they'd come to me. But I can't be sure they would.

These questions are about comics/comic related material:

1. Have you watched the following Marvel Films? If yes, what were your thoughts on them?
1a. X-Men 2
1b. Daredevil
1c. Hulk
1d. Fantastic Four
1e. Batman Begins
1f. Daredevil The Director's Cut (The novelization is closer to this version, than the theatrical)

1g. Not a Marvel Movie, but "Justice League Starcrossed The Movie"
2. What were your thoughts on Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends. Frank Welker did quite a bit of voicing for this one (Bobby Drake/Iceman, Flash Thompson, Ms. Lions and Matt Murdock).

3. I believe a copy of your resume mention you doing work on the Spider-Man Animated Series from Sony for MTV.
3a. What episodes if any did you help with?
3b. Any opinions on the series as a whole?

4. Did you get a copy of "The Batman VS Dracula"?

5. Last question. Did you think the DC Comics Universe was better with or without the Multiverse? I prefered the multiple earths. I recently picked up the Trade Paperback "Crisis On Multiple Earths The Team Ups", which made it possible to finally read Flash #123 (Flash Of Two Worlds).

Greg responds...

Geez, this could take me hours to answer...

1a. Saw it, and generally liked it. My main complaint on all three X-Men movies is the casting of Scott Summers. He's blown off the screen by Wolverine, and thus in X-2 is relegated to a very minor role, and in X-3 is unceremoniously killed off (for no good reason).

1b. Saw it on an airplane, and I'll admit I'm less picky on airplanes. Not a great movie. Was a bit disappointed in Kingpin. That guy so looks the part, but he seemed feeble to me.

1c. Haven't seen it. Would like to, actually. I'm curious.

1d. Ugh. AWFUL. Honestly, I've seen both the new version and the old version that was never released. Both are equally awful. Production values may have been better on this one, but the story is atrocious. The characterizations pathetic. And would it have killed them to make Johnny Storm blond? I mean Jessica Alba died HER hair. Also, Reed is horribly miscast. So is Doom for that matter.

1e. I've talked about this one elsewhere. I'll admit it's the best Batman movie to date, but I'll point out that that's not saying much. I found much to like. Much that raised the bar. But ultimately a movie that did not make it over the bar it raised. (Still, better to try and fail then not try.) The ending for me was particularly disappointing and non-sensical.

1f. Not sure what you're talking about here. But I guess I haven't seen it.

1g. Never heard of it.

2. I doubt I saw more than an episode or two and it was ages ago. I don't remember caring for it much -- Frank's work aside -- but then I wasn't exactly the target audience either.

3. I did briefly, but nothing I did ever made it on the air. My story editor on that show was let go, and the new story editor wasn't interested in pursuing anything with me.

3a. None. See above. I wrote one outline. But I'm not sure anyone ever read it, because my story editor was fired the same day I turned in my outline.

3b. I've never seen more than a couple of clips. No opinion.

4. Nope.

5. I preferred multiple earths. I think they made a classic error at the time. They would have been better off RENUMBERING their Earths. With what was then known as Earth 2 changing to Earth 1. The then current Earth 1 changing to Earth 2 and then SIMULTANEOUSLY launching Earth 3 in the eighties. The idea being that the "Heroic Age" begins anew on a new world every twenty years. That way they don't have to rewrite existing continuity, but they can still start fresh, i.e. have their cake and eat it too. And they'd still be able to do the occasional cross-over. (If you're stingy with this, it's really not that complicated.) They'd have two lines, but what's wrong with that? In essence, it seems to me, that's what Marvel did with Ultimates. The side benefit is that it also allows your characters to age naturally. It bugs me when characters can't grow. That's why Gargoyles is fixed in more-or-less real time.

About four years ago now, we had a lively discussion about the portrayal of disabilities in animation. With the queue briefly open, and with the episode initially featuring Jeffrey Robbins ("A Lighthouse in the Sea of Time") now out on DVD, I wanted to revisit that subject.

With the huge strides that have been made in Assistive Technology for those who are impaired, do you think that it provides more opportunities for storytelling? Or does it in any way reduce the level of dramatic opportunities available to you as a writer?

Greg responds...

I honestly don't know, as I haven't dealt with these technologies in story. Which may say something not-so-positive about how inclusive I've been in my storytelling recently.

So is Paris Geller (of GILMORE GIRLS) related to Monica and Ross Geller (of FRIENDS)? And if so, would she also be related to Rachel Green the mother of Ross' child? And is Rachel Green related to the late Mark Green (of E.R.)? I mean, it can't just be a coincidence that Mark's eldest daughter was also named Rachel Green, can it?

Hey Greg,

You recently announced that you had previously worked on a 'Spider-Man' series in 2002. Is this the same show that Jeff Masuta worked on, based on some designs on his site?

What happened to the show?

How much was done?

Greg responds...

I briefly worked on the MTV Spider-Man series. I'm not sure if Jeff also worked on that one. (I've worked with Jeff on other shows.) The series did indeed air. But none of my work saw the light of day, as the story editor I was working for was booted before I even got my outline approved.

My question relates to the video game "Kingdom Hearts" made by Disney and Square-Enix. For those who haven't played it, the game features worlds, plots, and characters from Disney's many movies and cartoons, even going so far as to get many of the original voice actors to voice the characters. Disney/Square are currently making the sequel Kingdom Hearts 2, and if that game does as well as the first, possibly even a Kingdom Hearts 3. It may be entirely possible that the Gargoyles could be added into one of these two games. Would Disney even consider doing something like this? If it happened, would Disney contact you about a possible plotline for the Gargoyles section of the game? Thanks a bunch.

Greg responds...

I think it would be great, but I have no idea how to make it happen. Don't even know whom to talk to about it. If Disney or Square or whomever decided to include Gargoyles, I would hope they'd come to me. But I can't be sure they would.

1. Did the Gargoyles watch American Idol?
a. If they did, who were they cheering for in each season?
2. What feelings, if any, did the Gargoyles have about the finale of "Friends"?

I would like to thank you so much for answering our questions.

My guess on when you answer this - June 2006!

Not really a question but a bit of info:

Mr. Weisman,
You said you wished to know what had happened to the elves at Helm's Deep in LOTR: The Two Towers. It is my belief (if I'm reading Tolkien's original work correctly) that the elves there all "died." The quotation marks are used because on Middle-earth, the elves are immortal. If they are killed, they are re-born, so to speak, some time later with full memories of their past experiences.
Just thought I'd share that...although, by the time you read this, I'm sure you'll have sated your curiosity.

Greg responds...

It's been years and years since I read Tolkien, and it may be true that in the book the elves all died. But I see NO indication of that in the movie. So when I comment on the movie version of Return of the King, I think it's fair to ask the question what happened to the elves from the movie version of TT.

Now of course, we very dramatically see one elf die. The guy we've met before, whose name escapes me at the moment. But I saw no indication that either he was the last one left and/or that all the others died after him.

Given how the movie presents the elves as SO much better fighters than anyone else we meet, I likewise find it hard to believe that so many humans survived and not one elf.

Keep in mind, though, that I DO love these movies.

This is probably going to reach you such a long time from now that the "freshness" will have most likely gone out of it by the time that you read it, but:

You raised the question as to what happened to the Elves who fought at Helm's Deep in the movie version of "The Return of the King". My own impression from the "Two Towers" movie was that they were all slain during the battle(except for Legolas), of course. Admittedly, they didn't refer to it in the dialogue for the "Return of the King".

Greg responds...

I've seen that movie at least three times now, and I NEVER got the impression that ALL were slain. Perhaps after the battle, they all headed for the coast. But there was never any indication that they were massacred down to the last elf. And it's tough to buy.

I love the trilogy, but if I have one complaint, I would have liked to have seen more elves and dwarves beyond just Legolas and Gimli fighting at the Gates of Sauron.

Okay, one more question for now...

I am a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. And the more I have read the behind-the-scenes on it, the more I see Joss Whedon, the creator has done a lot more then I thought and I apparentlty have been watching his works longer then I thought. As I have with you as well. I was wondering if you ever worked with him on anything? I know he has jumped around studios for years, even wrote Toy Story and whatnot, so he has been with Disney as well.
Also, have you watched either Buffy or Angel? And if so, what do you think of them?

Greg responds...

I've never worked with or met Joss Whedon, though I'd love to. I'm a HUGE fan.

I'm also a HUGE FAN of Buffy, Angel and Firefly. By now many of you know that I'm working on this strange anal project calculating the top 40 most important characters in the Buffyverse.

And I can't wait to see SERENITY. I'd see it the day it comes out, except that I'll be camping with my son on Catalina Island. So I probably won't see it for a week.

Don Ferguson (rodimus@mindspring.com) writes...


My name is Don and I wanted to ask if you could share some of your memories of working with the cast and crew on Talespin. Up until Gargoyles came along, Talespin was one of the most in-depth shows Disney had done to date, and had a noticably darker tone (such as Kit Cloudkicker episodes) compared to their earlier shows like Rescue Rangers. Any thoughts or comments from your time -and about Ed Gilbert who brought Baloo the bear to life-would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Greg responds...

Let me start with Ed, who was great as Baloo. I never met him. Not back in the Talespin days. I only went to some Talespin pick-up sessions, and we had no lines for Ed to pick up.

Of course, I later met Ed working on Gargoyles, where he played the Captain of the Guard at Castle Wyvern. He was terrific. I can't say I got to know him as a person, but I was very impressed with his abilities as an actor.

Anyway, the Talespin days...

When I started at Disney in 1989, production on Talespin was already underway. The big mucky-mucks on that show were Jymn Magon & Mark Zaslove. And I'm afraid I didn't really get to know either of them all that well. I later worked a bit more with both of them, but my job at the time was to give notes (both creative notes and S&P) directly to the individual story editors. I do recall having great sit-down conversations with Story Editor Karl Geurs. Karl really welcomed me to Disney... and we'd sit in his office and talk about the scripts, about animation, about storytelling for ... well... for longer than we probably needed to.

I thought/think that Talespin was a great fun idea. I think some of the episodes are just amazing. There's some really gorgeous stuff there. And I loved Shere Khan. I suppose to Jungle Book purists, it might have been problematic, but if you see the Disney characters evolving into actors, for me it was fun to see them playing different roles.

Abby writes...

In your August 1, 2003, response to F7 Addict regarding the dates and names of the various full moons, you asked about information regarding the origins of these names. As an amateur astronomer, I may be able to help. Various cultures, such as Europeans and various Native American tribes, named all the full and new moons of the year. Specifically, the Harvest and Hunter Moon titles come from Europe and colonial America. The names came from the behavior of the full moon at that time of the year. Normally, the moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night (and up to 80 minutes later each night in the spring). The geometry of the moon's orbit in September and October means it rises only about 30 minutes later each night (in the Northern Hemispere), and this extra light was helpful for farmers at harvest time (especially in the days before motorized farm machinery and electric lights). The full moon in October also provided early-evening light and coincided with the fall hunting season, so it was called the Hunters Moon.

Incidentally, the definition generally accepted by astronomers is that the Harvest Moon is the full moon nearest the September Equinox, and Hunters Moon is the next one after that.

I enjoy "Gargoyles" very much, and consider myself fortunate to have most of the episodes on tape. I am looking forward to the DVD release. Thanks for creating a show in which the characters grow as a result of the consequences of their actions, and with such complexity of plot.

Greg responds...

You're welcome. And thanks for the info...

Hey Greg, you know how Goliath and the rest of the clan always wanted to see daylight? Well, since the Gargoyles have a TV, when they watch a movie, a TV show and/or the news, don't they see daylight on the TV? Of course it's not the same as being out in the sunlight in person, but they see what it's like. Didn't they ever see what it's like during the day on TV?

Yes, but as you pointed out, it's not exactly the same, is it?
