I'm working on a paper that compares the original Shakespeare play, Macbeth, to the version on the Gargoyles show. If you are okay with it, I would love to get a quote from you to use in the paper. My question is this: Are there any plots/subject matter that you wouldn't have tackled in Gargoyles if it weren't animated? If yes, which ones and why?

Hi Skylar,

I'm thinking that any paper you were working on back in November might be a bit moot here in March.

And I'll be honest, you have so many double negatives, I'm not quite sure what you're asking...?

If this isn't too late, and you still want a quote from me, I'd advise reaching out to me (and clarifying your question) on Twitter. (Wednesdays or Thursdays, generally.) Otherwise, you'll be waiting even longer for a response. My handle is @Greg_Weisman

Having said all that, I'll take a guess here and say, "There's nothing we were afraid to tackle in animation. There were certain things they wouldn't let us tackle back in the day, such as objectively showing LGB relationships. (We weren't even thinking about TQ+ issues back then. Or at least, I wasn't, sad to say - or admit.)"
