Episode Summary

From the guys who brought you Mystery Science Theater 3000 comes the classic short film Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, with their unique blend of comedic commentary. The story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer has been told and retold countless times, in film, TV and song. All of those other versions are better than this one. The short begins with the bold step of having a song which relates the entire story of Rudolph to the audience, rendering itself redundant. It then takes the even bolder step of completely disregarding the well-established Rudolph canon to tell its own twisted version of the tale. A version that involves ice skating reindeer and provocatively-dressed reindeer moms. A version where Santa and the reindeer deliver presents to other reindeer and rabbits. Where are the human children? What kind of vengeful god created this world? Why is Rudolph's luminous nose referred to as being "twice as bright as a beet" multiple times? Why? WHY!? These questions are best pondered over a warm mug of eggnog, with the assistance of Mike, Kevin and Bill.moreless
