Father Time sends Santa a message telling him that the baby new year, Happy, is missing! And without the baby new year, it'll remain the old year forever. But it's foggy and snowing, so Rudolph's the only reindeer for the job. Rudolph learns that Eon (ugly buzzard) is also searching for Happy, so that eon life will never end. With the help of 1 Million B.C. and Sir 1023, and 1776, Rudolph searches through the islands of the Archipelago of Last Year and races against eon to ensure a Happy New Year.
10 December 1976 (USA)

The characters from the previous special do not appear in this one likely due to the fact that its copyright was questionable (because the special's copyright date was 1164, not 1964). See more
When Rudolph and his friends find Happy, Rudolph worries about getting him to Father Time's castle before the twelfth bong until Santa shows up in his sleigh. Since Rudolph is one of Santa's flying reindeer, he shouldn't need Santa or his sleigh to get to Father Time's castle. See more
[singing to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer
You know Rudolph who guided and pulled Santa's sleigh / and who saved Christmas by lighting the way. But there's more to tell / Rudolph saved the New Year as well.
