I believe this is the last one of the bunch, that I hadn't seen.
It sure as Hell didn't disappoint. :dance:

We have the Quest crew on yet another adventure, out in Norway.
Right off the bat, we see something is amiss, when Johnny notices what he thinks is a submarine periscope behind their boat.

Speaking of that, Benton Quest must have been very well off. Not only has he had his hands on alot of high tech gadgetry, but he has had an absolute slew of boats, planes, helicopters, cars, cameras, and a load of other cool scientific items.

This is one of the greatest episodes in the series, (in my opinion) by way of how it uses musical cues, if you are into those tidbits.
Most notably, when the gargoyle "creeps", and also the bit where Race and the gargoyle get into it. These are just two points that stood out.

Another rather interesting scene, is about the 14:00 mark, when Bandit peers up to see the gargoyle looking down at him.
Odd as it sounds, its fairly "menacing" and a bit frightening, seeing as its only a cartoon!

Although I could see the ending coming shortly before it happened, (and its rather brutal) its still a good one.

One great Image from me.
