RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, JR is the endearing story of the most famous reindeer of all, who likely needs no further introduction, Rudolph. Side by side with his new friend Hermey the Elf, the two Christmastown outcasts set off on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Along the way, the pair meet an eccentric arctic prospector and together, the three must find a way to thwart Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster, and save Christmas.
