Any geeky kid worth his dinosaur books knows that cavepeople and dinosaurs did not coexist. Flying reindeer with red noses, yes. People riding stegosauruses, no.

Audience Reviews for Rudolph's Shiny New Year


-IGNORE THIS "OUT OF FIVE" RATING 1.5/4 A dreary animated feature if there ever was one. Terminally weird, semi-sequel to RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER has infamous reindeer given incredible (and very un-credible) task of literally saving time by finding new year toddler! Some pleasant songs cannot redeem a bizarre, murky, even plodding story. It even rips off the characters in THE WIZARD OF OZ(!) Lazy animation and bad acting don't help. What were they thinking?

Overall, I just thought this was weird. So I give it points for that, but not much else.

Number 10 a cute little 50 minute film made back in 1976 by Rankin/Bass Productions. an animated fiilm with puppet like figures. And the story is based on Rudolph finding baby New Year or we are stuck on Dce 31 forever. Has educational parts, excellent for ages 1 to 4 years old. Also good for parents a cute old school chrildrens christmas film. 4 1/2 stars.
