Hugo is one of a trio of gargoyles who come to life in the animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame was released by Walt Disney pictures in 1996 and tells the story of the lonely hunchback Quasimodo. Quasimodo is held captive in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Hugo along with his gargoyle counterparts, Victor and Lavine come to life to keep Quasimodo company. There is some conjecture as to whether they are really coming to life or if they were conjured by Quasimodo’s imagination due to loneliness. Either way they feature in the movie.
Victor and Hugo are of course a shout out to the author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame – Victor Hugo. I am not sure where Lavine’s name comes from?
Even though I have a soft spot for all the gargoyles in this movie I chose Victor cause he makes me laugh. Hugo is the most flamboyant and comical out of the trio. I love it when others draw Esmeralda and he draws her goat. Hugo appears to have a romantic fascination with Esmeralda’s goat, which is comical and maybe slightly disturbing.
When he is not animated his mouth is always open due to this a bird nested in it.
