Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

1964 NR

Sam the Snowman (Burl Ives) narrates this stop-motion animated classic about little Rudolph, who yearns for a coveted spot on Santa's team of reindeer. But Rudolph's strangely glowing red nose makes him a joke to everyone at the North Pole. Feeling like a misfit, Rudolph runs away and teams with Hermey the elf and prospector Yukon Cornelius; the trio face down the dreaded Abominable Snow Monster and gain the respect of Santa and the others.
