I used a putty knife, gasoline, and a little elbow grease. Oh, and some patience and bloddy knuckles if you are not careful

For the gasket portion stuck on the actual pan, I used a wire-wheel on an air compressor.

Yep, get what you can with the scraper and follow up with die grinder and Roloc disc.

Get a good sized tupperware container (just big enough to fit the trans. pan in), fill it with boiling water from kettle and let trans. pan soak upside down. Scrub with brass or Nylon brush (something soft). Just had the same problem and this works great. Be carefull not to "Gouge" the pan with razor blades and what not...

Permatex "Gasket Remover" in blue spray can. Spray it, don't let it drip on your skin as it immediately starts to burn (ask me how I know this), let it soak for 10 min, then scrape off with a razor scraper. Repeat as many times as you need.

I used this stuff on a baked-on cork oil pan gasket, and it took 3 or 4 applications to get it all off the block.

Should work well for the tranny pan as well, but it is very toxic stuff. You don't want any of it in the guts of your tranny, so I would cut out some cardboard and hold it up to the bottom of the tranny to prevent overspray from getting in there. Rubber gloves are nice if you have them.
