Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph's shiny red nose brings the young reindeer nothing but trouble. His father wants him to hide it, the other reindeer tease him about it and Santa won't let a red-nosed reindeer pull his sleigh. Miserable and rejected, Rudolph runs away from home with Hermey, an elf who would rather be a dentist than make toys. The two misfits find excitement and new friends in the great wild world and learn that dentist elves and red-nosed reindeer can save the day too.
