Welcome back to Thursday Theme Songs! It feels great to be back and I have a fun month planned for all of you! This month's theme is "Narrative Theme Songs". These are theme songs that have talking over the music, usually by the main character, telling you the plot of the show. Our first theme song is the Disney cult classic,
Goliath and the clan
The show's main characters are a group of Gargoyles who lived in medieval times. They were stone by day and warriors by night, sworn to protect their home, a Scottish castle. By they were put under a spell that turned them to stone until the spell was broken hundreds of years in the future, our present.
Goliah SMASH puny robot!
This is also the first serial show for Disney. Fans got into the show because characters changed and grew, people switched sides, and major continuity made the show interesting to watch. The writers often brought in elements of Norse history, King Arthur history and even elements of Shakespeare.
Gargoyles became a huge hit and Disney asked for another season. So Weisman and his crew set out to make another 13 episodes. But Disney didn't want 13 episodes, they wanted 52! Could Weisman pull it off? You bet!
Elisa and Goliath
The loyal fan base lives on to this day with people all over the world writing fanfiction and making their own continuations of the stories. An annual convention called Gathering of the Gargoyles meets where people can meet other fans, voice actors, the production team and dress up and have fun.
This theme song is the second season theme in which they added narration by Keith David, aka Goliath.
