Network Holiday Specials Kick Off with Rudolph
With some of the more painful holiday traditions like Black Friday and the inevitable cornucopia of leftover turkey dishes that continue into December, some of the sweeter things about the holiday season are rearing their red noses.
Wednesday at 8PM, CBS affiliates will be airing the stop-motion animation classic, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” The Rankin-Bass special first aired 1964 and has been a fond, family tradition. Based on the popular Christmas carol, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” the story follows Rudolph from outcast reindeer from Santa’s sleigh team to finding acceptance alongside his friend Hermey the Elf (who would rather be a dentist than make toys in Santa’s workshop) and on the Island of Misfit Toys.
Tune in for the first (and arguably one of the best) of many holiday specials to take the airways by snow-storm this season! Gain some inspiration for some fun holiday costumes for a parade or holiday pageant. Head on over to our “How To” section to see how to make a Yukon Cornelius costume inspired by one of the main characters in Rudolph… Or pick up your own Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer or Elf costume!
