ABOUT RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the longest-running and
highest-rated holiday special in television history. Since
1964, more than one hundred million families have tuned into
to watch the annual CBS broadcast.
Burl Ives stars as Sam the Snowman, narrating
and singing the story of a rejected reindeer who overcomes
prejudice to save Christmas one particularly blustery year.
Along the way, he meets a dentally obsessed elf named Hermey,
the affable miner Yukon Cornelius and his motley crew of puppies,
the scary and adorable Abominable Snow Monster, a legion of
abandoned toys (the lovable Island of Misfit Toys), and a
sometimes grouchy Santa!
