Trivia

Slyly and Ridley were redesigned only months before the movies release. Ridley was going to have a striped blue and white Butler suit and Slyly was originally going to be red before (the latter was changed to white likely to reflect the movie's North Pole setting). See more »

Great Christmas Classic for Everyone!
2 May 1999 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

An instant Christmas classic! Great cast (voices) and decent animation make this a family classic for any Christmas occasion. Considering the fact that this film isn't Disney, it belongs in the category of excellent animated films. On a Friday afternoon of September 1998, I came across "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer : The Movie" opening today in limited release. Fortunately my movie theater was playing it and with a cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Bob Newhart, Sarah Jessica Parker, Debbie Reynolds, & John Goodman, I couldn't resist. Why Legacy Releasing opened a Christmas movie in the fall I'll never know, but if you haven't seen it with your kids, get it this Christmas season. Soundtrack includes a special musical performance of "A Wonderful Christmas Time" by Paul and Linda McCartney. Now on video from Goodtimes Entertainment.
