Relocating Gasting Gag to trivia page. Also, Examples Are Not Recent
* CanonDiscontinuity: The entire ''Goliath Chronicles'' except for the very first episode, "The Journey," never happened according to WordOfGod (Weisman). To enforce this, "The Journey" was included as the beginning of the recent ''Gargoyles'' comic books, solidifying its canon status, followed by the rest of the comic books contradicting ''The Goliath Chronicles''.

* AnAesop: ExecutiveMeddling inserted one in every episode of ''The Goliath Chronicles'', but the earlier episodes featured them as well. [[{{Anvilicious}} It was prominent]] in "Deadly Force", an episode about the dangers of guns, which handled the subject in a mature manner (i.e., making the Aesop not "Guns are super evil and should not even be looked at" but "Guns are dangerous and should be respected and handled properly.") This particular Aesop was actually learned within the show itself, for Elisa [[ContinuityNod was shown to lock away her gun in future episodes]], rather than leaving it loaded and lying around. The episode also lead to some CharacterDevelopment for Broadway, who hated guns from that point forward. Sadly, this was lost on the MoralGuardians, as they still saw fit to first ban the episode from rotation, and then return it with all the gun violence edited, including the shot of Elisa getting shot (which was cropped to remove the blood at her side). Also of special note, ''Gargoyles'' won an award [[note]]which, at the time, was almost unheard of for an animated Aesop episode (an anti-gun episode of ''StaticShock'' won one too)[[/note]] and was mentioned in ''The New York Times'' and other papers as one of the greatest reasons to watch the show for an episode about illiteracy and the importance of reading.

Add more detail about the Star Trek actors' series.
As a side note: in what became somewhat of an inside joke, many ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' actors had ''at least'' cameo roles in the series. Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis played the primary villains Xanatos and Demona; Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and Kate Mulgrew all played recurring roles; and the guest stars included Avery Brooks, Colm Meaney, [=LeVar=] Burton, and Nichelle Nichols.

** Likewise, a Radioplay written by the head honcho himself for the final Gathering was a crossover with TheSpectacularSpiderMan. While not canonical, the events fit in fine with both continuities. At the moment.

* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Dr. Anton Sevarius has a stunning intellect, an ego the size of Montana, and little to no regard for scientific ethics. Fortunately he's in it for the research and the money. Were he to go full-on MadScientist everyone on Earth could be in deep trouble.

Added DiffLines:
* IncestIsRelative: Gargoyles born into the same generation regard each other as siblings. However, almost all of them also find their mate within their generation, meaning you're mated for life to someone you used to call your sister. This is demonstrated when Iago propositions Desdemona, calling her "sister" as he does so.

** It's also how Jeffrey Robbins realized pretty much immediately that a borderline LineOfSightName like "Lennox Macduff" wasn't Macbeth's real name and that he almost definitely wasn't Hudson's friend.
