Storyline

Robbie the reindeer is determined to win a place pulling Santa's sled. Unfortunately, he's got two problems facing him. One, he's sadly out of shape; two, he doesn't realize his pal Blitzen is cheating! Confused by the temptations of sexy lady reindeer Vixen, and completely unaware of bubble-headed Donner's love for him, Robbie faces the race of his life. Written by Mike Konczewski

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 »

Instant classic
10 November 2001 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this at the local library and brought it home for my 3 grade daughter. After the first 10 seconds, I stopped it and held it for us all to view. What a great surprise. We've been fans of the classic annual Christmas cartoon specials and this rates right at the top of the list as a new must see annual classic. There is so much happening in this short animation, you have to watch it again and again. I'm sure we didn't get all the British humor, but we still laughed a lot. Maybe they will do Frostie next?
