Gurgi is a character from Disney's 1985 feature film The Black Cauldron. He is portrayed as an ugly gopher wood troll creature, whose speech distortions somewhat resemble those of Donald Duck. The voice is provided by actor/impressionist John Byner. He serves as the secondary tritagonist.

Background

Physical Description

Gurgi appears as a small, dog-like creature with blue eyes and shaggy, light-brown fur.

Personality

Gurgi is portrayed to be very cowardly through most of the film, but surprises us by sacrificing himself into the Cauldron. He, however, is revived by the Witches of Morva. He has a huge love for apples, which he refers to as "munchings and crunchings".

Appearances

The Black Cauldron

Gurgi first appears when Taran is off searching for Hen Wen. When Taran tries to flush out the pig with an apple, Gurgi leaps down from a tree, and snatches the apple out of Taran's outstretched hand. Gurgi follows Taran for a while, though the boy doesn't want Gurgi around. The 2 split ways when Taran intends to enter the Horned King's castle. Taran deems Gurgi to be a coward in addition to being a thief and sends him away. When Taran escapes from the castle with Eilonwy and Fflam, Gurgi meets up with Taran again and befriends Eilonwy. They journey into the underground realm of the Fair Folk and to Morva, but when the heroes are taken captive by the Horned King's forces, Gurgi runs away again. Eventually, Gurgi musters up the courage to go and help his friends and sacrifices himself and jumps into the Cauldron, destroying its powers and the Horned King with it. When the Witches of Morva offer another exchange deal, Taran trades the Cauldron for Gurgi's life, not bothering to get the magic sword back because he now considers his friends more important than being a great warrior.

Disney Parks

When the film was first released, a quick-service eatery at the Magic Kingdom was named Gurgi's Munchings and Crunchings though the name would be changed in 1993.
