It was Goth and for kids!
Ok, I may be all growed up now, but this show was my favorite when I was in middle school. I absorbed it from the first episode.|
It may just be why I turned so dark and gothy all through college. I even retain many of my dark tendencies today in both my personality and home decor.
I appreciated this cartoon for its depth, story arcs, and inclusion of myth and Shakespearan allusions. Even at 13 I appreciated a good story and grand but fallible characters.
So, let's all remember our old friends Goliath, Hudson, Brooklyn, Lexington, Bronx, Broadway, Demona and MacBeth, David Xanatos, Elisa Maza, Owen Burnett/ Puck, Angela, the Weird Sisters or Trio, Fox and the Pack, Coldstone, Coldsteel, Coldfire, Oberon, Titania, and a myriad of other odd and beautiful charcters like the Manhattan pack and gargoyles from around the world.
