Did You Know?

Trivia:
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 »

Old Jingle:This is a much better spot for a house. I'd have to be raving mad to push it back up that hill.

Incredibly funny and entertaining!, 19 November 2007
Author: Mightyzebra from Scotland

As are most of the plasticine short films made, this one is funny, entertaining and very worthwhile! :-) Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be that well known and someone made an American version, which (not having actually watched it) seems ludicrous a wee bit stupid. From what other people have said, it seems that it is not good so let us all avoid it!

The original English version is very amusing. Entertaining for just about everyone, with slightly dirty jokes for the wee ones, jokes that make sense for older children and jokes that adults will get and find amusing!

Robbie, Rudolph's son (with a lovely Irish accent), is going to be getting ready for his first sleigh pull while his father is away elsewhere. Unfortunately, he is not very well exercised and is pretty gullible with Blizten - who seems suspicious... He is also head over heels with love for Vixen, ignoring Donner, who wants his affection more. Clearly he's in a wee bit of a pickle...

Enjoy "Robbie The Reindeer: Hooves On Fire"! :-)
