Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie is a UK VHS release by Carlton Home Entertainment on 7th December 1998, 8th November 1999 and 7th October 2002.
Inspired by the Classic Song That Has Been a Christmas Tradition for Generations
The brand new adventures of Rudolph, 'the most famous reindeer of all,' come magically to life in this feature-length animated musical, full of loveable characters and voiced by an all-star cast. Ridiculed because of his nose, Rudolph runs away to the North Pole where he befriends Slyly the fox (ERIC IDLE) and Leonard the polar bear (BOB NEWHART). When his friend Zoey, a young doe, is captured by the evil Ice Queen Stormella (WHOOPI GOLDBERG), Rudolph bravely sets out to rescue her and helps Santa (JOHN GOODMAN) save Christmas. This festive mix of magic and music features eight original songs including the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer plus PAUL and LINDA McCARTNEY'S A Wonderful Christmas Time.
