Throwback Thursday: “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964)

Children today cannot truly comprehend the meaning of the term “Christmas special.”  Netflix, Hulu and Youtube (not to mention pirated movie sites) now make “specials” available at leisure.  There was a time, kids, when the program you see below was an event unto itself.  It aired once a year.  If you missed it, then you missed it.  (I never did.)

I remember loving most of this, and being allowed a bowl of either chocolate or coffee ice cream from the box in the freezer.  (Did anybody else grow up with coffee ice cream?)

You know what would be a very marketable idea?  Making a toy line that reproduces the “Misfit Toys.”  People would buy those.
