rudolph A Well Kept Secret Of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Find out a little known fact of the holiday classic, Rudolph.

The original TV version of the show, Rudolph, he along with Hermie and Yukon, visit the island of Misfit Toys and promise to help them.  But the Misfits were never mentioned again.  After the original version was shown, the producers were inundated with letters from kids complaining that nothing had been done to help the Toys.  In reponse, Rankin-Bass produced a new short scene at the end of the show in which Santa and the reindeer, led by Rudolph, land on the island and pick up all the toys to find them homes.  That ending has been a standard for the holiday classic and is the only version run each year!
