Reindeer games

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

It's been kind of a miserable week, so imagine my joy when I came home last night to Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer on TV! I've seen it what, 15, 20 times in my life, but am still mystified by a few things. Like why is Mrs. Claus a Jewish mother (Santa, EAT, EAT!) and how did the gay dentist elf ever make it past the network honchos in 1964? And is Yukon Cornelius really necessary? Oh well. Suspend disbelief. Relive your childhood.

And don't think I'd forget Frosty . . .

Awesome post! Burl Ives is the real deal. The classics are far better than 99% of new renditions out there.
