In 2017 series finale "The Last Adventure!" after being shot by the Blessed Bagpipes, Manny the Headless Man-Horse's statue head (resembling Scrooge McDuck's) becomes flesh, prompting Manny to declare "I live again", similar to Goliath stating "We live again". His body, however, turns to stone much like how gargoyles do during stone sleep.

Later in the episode, Manny is restored to life again (even restating such) and tosses his statue head to regrow his original, as well as wings and becoming gargoyle-like in the process before fighting the Phantom Blot. During the sequence, the Gargoyles theme briefly plays.
