Gurgie! My brother did a great impression of the annoying little furball.
Ok. Predictable and simple. A little disturbing at times for a kid movie, though.

I can see why Disney is trying to forget this film.
The Black Cauldron is a 1985 American animated fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and originally released to theatres on July 24, 1985. The twenty-fifth animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, the film is based on Lloyd Alexander's The Chronicles of Prydain book series, which is in turn based on Welsh mythology.
The film centers around the evil Horned King who attempts to secure the Black Cauldron in order to rule the world. The Horned King is opposed by the heroes Taran, Princess Eilonwy, Fflewddur Fflam and a creature named Gurgi.
The film is directed by Ted Berman and Richard Rich, who had directed the previous Disney animated feature The Fox and the Hound, and features the voices of Grant Bardsley, Susan Sheridan, Freddie Jones, Nigel Hawthorne and John Hurt. A video game based on the film was released in 1986.
On the small farm of Caer Dallben, Taran is an Assistant Pigkeeper to the enchanter Dallben, with dreams of becoming a great warrior....
