Great show! Strong plots and characters

I watched this when I was really young and it never scared me but it could scare young children. Rewatching it as an adult, it’s very enjoyable with complex plot lines and well developed characters. It features a strong female lead, a recurring theme of tolerance and not judging someone by apparence or because they’re different than you, and great friendships. I would highly recommend.

Gargoyales one of the best darkest and edgy cartoons of the 90es

This show could be scary to some kids but unfortunately it is for 9 + the show features lots of action and violence kids love however it has to much violence and occasionally blood is seen. This show should have recieved a pg rating

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
