Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are watching one of the most notorious flops in the history of Disney animation, the 1985 fantasy not-so-epic "The Black Cauldron," and then also talking about 1994's "Trapped in Paradise," which they both oddly recall the trailer vividly, though the final film is only memorable for unintended reasons. The guys then try and combine both films into an original pitch to once again close out the show.
