This classic tale is still beloved today, as its feel-good story about the most famous reindeer of all wins every kid (and, fine, adult) over. It’s easy to feel bad for poor Rudolph when he’s told that he can’t play in any Reindeer Games. He meets fellow misfits Hermey, an elf wanting to be a dentist; prospector Cornelius Yukon, who can’t find any silver or gold; and the gang on the Island of Misfit Toys. Yet Rudolph finds social acceptance when he saves his parents and love interest, Clarice, from Bumble, an abominable snowman, and when Santa Claus asks him to lead his sleigh on a bad-weathered Christmas Eve. Plus, Sam the Snowman (voiced by Burl Ives) guides the story along.
