Originally, Rudolph's name is never mentioned specifically because of copyright reasons. Only because of this was its omission then worked into the plot as a running gag. See more »
Robbie, I know you love me and would do anything to please me. I don't want you to run in the steeple chase. There, that done, lets get on with our lives.
Sorry, Vixen but I'm going to run. And try to win and everything.

Splendid entertainment!! (be sure to switch to UK voice talent!!!)
Everyone else has fairly well summed up this movie for you. It is a truly superb movie with tremendously good writing and voice talent (UK version).
As others have noted, the addition of a US voice cast is appalling!! Having seen the former release with ONLY Hooves of Fire on it, the default US voiced version which came on the new Hooves / Lost Tribe double disk was a shock! This does not mean that I don't like the voice actors, in fact I quite like several of them, but the UK cast is FAR superior. The problem is that this is a British comedy which has British dialog (as previously noted, the English re-writes don't work), and I kind-of expect the British accents (OK, I should say UK-ish accents since Robbie is voiced by an Irishman). I don't think you should boycott it, though, just make sure that EVERY time you play it for anybody you first go to AUDIO OPTIONS and switch to UK VOICES!! Trust me, you'll thank me for that...
