The incredible Gargoyles is among the classic cartoons hitting Disney Plus

Ducktales, Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck are among the Disney Afternoon cartoons coming to the streaming service.


Disney Plus is ready for the '90s kids.


If you were hoping for a little '90s animated adventure in your Disney Plus, you're in luck. The company revealed earlier this week that a bunch of Disney Afternoon cartoons -- Gargoyles, Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Ducktales, Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck and TaleSpin -- will come to the streaming service for your nostalgic viewing pleasure.

Everyone will have a personal favorite from this list, but Gargoyles deserves a special mention because it's excellent. It followed a group of winged nocturnal creatures (with cool names like Goliath and Demona) who turn to stone during the day. They start out in medieval Scotland, but end up living in 1994 New York after being cursed and hibernating for a thousand years. 

Tonally, it's pretty similar to Batman: The Animated Series and has an exceptional voice cast that includes a bunch of Star Trek alumni. You should watch the intro sequence immediately.

Last week, a fan asked Keith David, who played Goliath, on Twitter if he'd return to the role if Disney revived the show on its streaming service.

"In a heartbeat!" David replied. 

The actor was also asked how he shaped his role as Gargoyles' leader.

"I embraced the humanity in him. I tried to explore all aspects of Goliath; that's what gave the character depth," he wrote.

TaleSpin is fascinating in a different way -- it recasts Baloo, the bear from Jungle Book, as a pilot based in a coastal city that's often attacked by air pirates led by flamboyant talking wolf Don Karnage. Shere Khan, the tiger from Jungle Book, is a criminal banker, and it seems like it's set in the '30s.

The $7-a-month Disney Plus service comes to the US, Canada and the Netherlands on Nov. 12. It'll have 300 movies and 7,500 episodes of TV on day one.
