Trivia

The title is based on a "mondegreen" (a misheard, spoonerized, or comically misinterpreted phrase from a song or poem): the title is from the lyric "all of the other reindeer" from "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Other character names are similarly derived: the name "Richard Stands" is a malapropriation of the phrase "which it stands" in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, and the character name "Round John Virgin" is taken from the phrase "round yon virgin" from "Silent Night".

Quotes

Olive: By the way, where's Rudolph?
Comet: There's no Rudolph. It's just one of those urban legends.

In a word, marvelous.
1 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show was absolutely hilarious. I sat there, watching it, laughing my rear off every three seconds. I regretted not recording it when it was on Fox. I can't even tell you how hilarious it was. Does it have schmaltz, you ask? that terrible plot ploy that has made several family films into absolute terrors to watch? Heck no! It's simply a funny, adroit film that should be on everyone's shelf. Watch it. 'Nuf said.
