Product Description

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

This classic 1964 television special featuring Rudolph and his misfit buddies set the standard for stop-motion animation for an entire generation before Tim Burton darkly reinvented it in the early 1990s. Burl Ives narrates as Sam the Snowman, telling and singing the story of a rejected reindeer who overcomes prejudice and saves Christmas one particularly blustery year. Along the way, he meets an abundance of unforgettable characters: his dentally obsessed elf pal Herbie; the affable miner Yukon Cornelius and his motley crew of puppies; the scary/adorable Abominable Snow Monster; a legion of abandoned, but still chatty, toys; and a rather grouchy Santa. In addition to the title song that inspired it, this 53-minute tape is crammed with catchy tunes such as "Silver and Gold" and "Holly Jolly Christmas." Those who grew up looking forward to watching Rudolph every Christmas season will undoubtedly be able to recite the quotable quotes ("I'm cuuuute. She said I'm cuuuute." "Herbie doesn't like to make toys.") as well as any Casablanca cult audience. --Kimberly Heinrichs --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Based on the Johnny Marks Christmas song of the same name, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer first made its debut as a Rankin & Bass television holiday special in the winter of 1964. Ridiculed for his shiny red nose, Rudolph the reindeer runs away with another outcast (an elf named Hermes who would rather be a dentist than a toy maker), and together they embark on a wild adventure that leads them from the Island of Misfit Toys to the lair of a ferocious abominable snow monster.

A timeless and beloved classic, the special is just as relevant today as it was when it first premiered over forty years ago. It deals with important themes and life-lessons, while at the same time perfectly capturing the imaginations of children of all ages and the true spirit of Christmas.

With beautiful stop motion animation, stunningly detailed miniature sets, a huge cast of lovable characters (including Yukon Cornelius, Sam the Snowman, Clarice, and of course, Santa), holiday viewing just doesn’t get any better than this. The icing on the cake is the warm and friendly narration provided by Burl Ives and an unforgettable line-up of songs, including ‘Jingle Jingle Jingle’, ‘There’s Always Tomorrow’, ‘Silver and Gold’, ‘We’re a Couple of Misfits’ and ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’.

While the video transfer of Rudolph on DVD is far from perfect (there are many instances of dust, dirt, lines and debris) and the audio is pretty average, neither dampens the spirit of this timeless classic.

It just wouldn’t feel like Christmas without at least one family viewing of Rankin & Bass’ first (and in my opinion finest) holiday TV special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It’s a great addition to any collection and easily earns my highest recommendation.

In just telling the story in the song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" would make for a decent enough animated holiday television show. But where the 1964 production from Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr. achieved greatness was in the creativeness it showed with the supporting cast. The story is narrated by Sam the Snowman, voiced by Burl Ives (who sang the second most popular version of the song after Gene Autry's orignal), and Rudolph (Billie Mae Richards) becomes friends with both Hermey (Paul Soles), the elf who marches to his own drummer, and Yukon Cornelius (Larry D. Mann), the prospector. However, the most unforgettable characters in this story are the toys from the Island of Misfit Toys: Charlie-in-the-Box, the Spotted Elephant, and the others, along with their leader, King Moonracer.
The result is a much deeper version of the story than was even hinted at in the lyrics of Johnny Marks' classic Christmas song. We all now how the story is going to end on that foggy Christmas eve, so it is everything leading up to that fateful night that is where this story gets its deserved reputation as Rudolph is not the only one who ends up having their life take a turn for the better, as even the Abominable Snowman finds he can put the finishing touches on a perfect Christmas. Besides, how often does a dentist get to be the hero in a Christmas story?
Bass-Rankin took at similar approach in 1970 with "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," and while that animated holiday show is pretty good and worth watching each Christmas season, this one is better. If you have been in a store and seen the looks of pure delight on people's faces when they see the line of toy figures associated with "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," then you already know this. Hard to believe this particular "Rudolph" will enjoy its fortieth anniversary next year.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a timeless Christmas classic that brings back so many wonderful childhood memories for me. It came out days before I was born and growing up in the 60's it's always been a part of my life. Rudolph has been televised every year at Christmas time and I still get excited when it comes on. At 50 years old with no modern special effects or CGI, Rudolph still manages to entertain.

Today I was fortunate enough to meet the one and only Paul Soles at the Windsor Comic Con. For those of you who don't know who he is. Paul Soles was the voice of "Hermey" the Elf in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Spider-man 67. He's 84 years old and still as sharp as can be. Believe it or not, this was his first ever convention of any kind. He said that he never knew that these conventions existed and he was clearly overwhelmed by the support from the fans at the show. Mr. Soles is one of the most gracious men I have ever had the pleasure to meet and it truly was an amazing experience. He signed a 11" x 17" Rudolph print that was offered exclusively for this event.

When the storm of the century hits, Santa decides to cancel Christmas. Sam the snowman tells us the story of a young red-nosed reindeer named Rudolph who will be the one to save Christmas; he just doesn't know it. Rudolph tries to hide his glowing nose so he can participate in the yearly reindeer games. During the games his nose becomes exposed to all the other reindeer and he is quickly banished from the games. It's at this point Rudolph meets up with Hermey the Elf who's had some bad luck of his own. It seems that Hermey would rather be a dentist than an elf and together the two set out for an adventure.
