Curdie is the secondary protagonist and the love interest of Princess Irene in the 1992 Hungarian-British film The Princess and the Goblin. He is the son of a miner and an expert on goblins. His way of keeping goblins away is by singing, as they hate music. Of course, he is aware there are times and places where not even singing works on them, such as (as his father points out) if they want something and (as he himself says to Irene) underground in the mines (as they live there).
Curdie was voiced by Peter Murray and sung by Paul Keating.
