References to Gargoyles in Rain of the Ghosts

  • In Chapter Three, the Nitaino Inn's guest book lists a Terry Chung and a Elizabeth Ellis-Chung currently staying at the inn.
  • The tourist characters of Bernie and Maude Cohen (then-called Marge) are an allusion to Gargoyles' Brendan and Margot. [8] In Chapter Thirteen, Maude says to her husband, "Just give him the quarter, Bernie." This echoes Margot's line "Give him your wallet, Brendan," in the episode "Awakening: Part Three".
  • The B-17 named the Island Belle uses the call-sign "Broadway Niner-Niner-Four".

Production Background

Originally created by Greg Weisman while he was in development at DreamWorks Television Animation as an animated series and purchased by Nickelodeon, the show for various reasons never got made. A version of the hour pilot (written by Weisman) would eventually become the first Radio Play at the second annual Gathering of the Gargoyles. [9][10]
