It wouldn't be so indelible in people's hearts.

The woman behind the voice of Sue the dolly, Corinne Conley, told TMZ that people looking only at the negative are completely missing the overall point of the story. The Rankin/Bass Productions program follows famed glowy-nosed reindeer Rudolph (Billie Mae Richards), an outsider discouraged from participating in reindeer games, who ventures to an island of misfit toys with fellow oddballs Yukon Cornelius (Larry D. Mann) and wannabe dentist elf Hermey (Paul Soles).

"I would say [the film] is more relevant now than ever because there's so much bullying going on, but it's all reconciled in 'Rudolph, ' and surely people wouldn't love it so much if it left a resonance of bullying". Rudolph should go down in history, and not just for pulling Santa's sleigh.


Huff Post claims "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" promotes bigotry; Dave Rubin responds. But that's good. I don't think by getting sensitive to bullying that you want to copy it.

While the special focuses on the popular reindeer's fight to overcome obstacles to becoming a Christmas Eve hero, some believe certain scenes should not be included; such as Rudolph's father, Donner, verbally abusing him, and his friend Clarice's father telling his daughter to keep away from the reindeer because of his shiny red nose. But, if they do, they might learn a lesson. I can't imagine if you are a hater...you take the opposite view of the film.

There are tons of Christmas movies to enjoy-including an endless number of Hallmark movies-should this TV special no longer work for you.
