Three Random Thoughts On Rudolph’s Shiny New Year

My grand finale for this Christmas season is the 1976 special called Rudolph’s Shiny New Year!  This show expands the Rudolph mythos and enters bold new territory.

The Story

Rudolph is called upon to locate the Baby New Year.  To do so he must travel to islands where previous years are frozen in time.  Much adventures ensue.

The Years

Rudolph visits the cavemen year, the fairy tales year, and Independence Day year.  Benjamin Franklin becomes a supporting character at this point.  Lots of fun and a junior history lesson as well.

The Baby

Happy, the Baby New Year, is such a cute little one.  He has a secret which causes him to run off.  And Rudolph is the perfect agent to save Happy.

Rudolph saves New Year’s, much like he saved Christmas.  Our glowy nosed reindeer presents another great tale with a great message.


P.S.  Rudolph’s Shiny New Year is copyright 2012 to Rankin Bass.

P.P.S.  It is 6 days till New Years Eve!!!!!!
