Three Random Thoughts On Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Back in 1964 a classic was born, one that everyone remembers, starring one plucky reindeer.  I am of course talking about Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.

The Story

Rudolph is a fun little reindeer who has a nose that glows, which causes quite a bit of bullying from everyone, even Santa.  He takes off with an elf and tries to find their way in the world.  But then a snowstorm hits…

The Voices

Burl Ives narrates so eloquently our tale, and even entertains us with some delightful songs.  The Holly Jolly tune is a special favourite of mine.

The Background

This story of Rudolph was first told as a poem in 1939, then a song also in 1939, before hitting the small screen.  It has proven to be one the most popular ever since.

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer is a great tale, with many lessons, including how even the best among us can become bullies.  But everything turns out well in the end.

    Shame on you for not mentioning your father’s favourite cowboy Gene Autry’s recording of the song.
