While trying to find a way out of Stormella's Castle, they never think to follow Rudolph and Leonard's footprints, which is what they saw when realizing that they were going round in circles. See more »

Older Zoey: I've ruined everything
Grown-Up Rudolph: no, it's my fault
Older Zoey: But I crossed the bridge
Grown-Up Rudolph: I ran away
Older Zoey: you wouldn't have run away if I didn't tell you, well, Rudolph, you mean everything in to me.

Great Christmas Classic for Everyone!
2 May 1999 | by Guy143See all my reviews

An instant Christmas classic! Great cast (voices) and decent animation make this a family classic for any Christmas occasion. Considering the fact that this film isn't Disney, it belongs in the category of excellent animated films. On a Friday afternoon of September 1998, I came across "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer : The Movie" opening today in limited release. Fortunately my movie theater was playing it and with a cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Bob Newhart, Sarah Jessica Parker, Debbie Reynolds, & John Goodman, I couldn't resist. Why Legacy Releasing opened a Christmas movie in the fall I'll never know, but if you haven't seen it with your kids, get it this Christmas season. Soundtrack includes a special musical performance of "A Wonderful Christmas Time" by Paul and Linda McCartney. Now on video from Goodtimes Entertainment.
