Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)

A classic Christmas special, this forty-five minute celebration of the holiday season help set the standard against which other, similar specials are measured. Burl Ives makes for the perfect narrator and performer for this charming, beautifully realized fable, following the titular character on his quest to find the value within himself. With an effective and memorable antagonist to accompany its strengths, there’s nothing better to highlight the warmth and tradition of the season.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
