Animation Damnation #23 - Rudolph's Shiny New Year
On this episode of Animation Damnation, the guys chat about the ridiculous Rankin & Bass holiday special, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, which originally aired December 10th, 1976. Is this anything more than a cheap cash grab off the success of the first Rudolph film? What happened to that camel with a clock in its back? And could they not think of a better lesson than "suck it up and deal"? PLUS: A sneak preview of some 2016 Animation Damnation plans!
Rudolph's Shiny New Year stars Red Skelton, Frank Gorshin, Billie Mae Richards, and Morey Amsterdam; directed by Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr.
