This stop-motion animagic version of the classic Christmas tale adds a bit of a twist when Rudolph encounters an abominable snowman. This was made for TV and features Burl Ives as the narrator.~Phillip Erlewine
No matter your age, this Blu-ray version has much improved picture quality and sound than I remember from the original TV airing of this uplifting movie back in the day. I will watch it year after year.
This very much beloved Christmas TV Special now has reached 50 Years Old! Along with the original TV special is behind features including the celebrating of 50 years.
This review is from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer [50th Anniversary] [DVD] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a great movie !!
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a great movie and I was super happy to find multiple videos ! I bought 3 as gifts and 1 for myself ! I watched Rudolph when it first came out with my wonderful son, and we actually copied it and watched it all year long, and had great memories, and he had a high level PhD in Nuclear Engineering, Engineering Physic, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Science, Mathematics and has written several internationally shared books ! He has a great new job in another state and purchased a new TV and the first time he turned it on, he got to watch Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer and had great memories and texted me asap !! I then was so happy to find 4 great CDs, 1 younger son is supervising renovations of National Parks and more, and he will be thrilled that I have the CD for us to watch on Christmas, as he saw it when he was born. The others are great gifts to the children and my niece and of my nephew, and to my niece and nephews, and I know that they will all be thrilled to get Rudolph, which is such a great movie, and the parents will all be happy too and enjoy it !! It is so great the Best buy had the great movie and enough for me to get one for each family !!
This cute story, although primitive by today's standards, is a must-have for around the holidays. It just belongs! What's more, the quality surpasses anything that people could have enjoyed back in day.
