Ru­dolph the Red-nosed Rein­deer

8 p.m. on WLTX

The beloved “An­imagic” tale of the most fa­mous rein­deer of all of­fers a thought­ful les­son about dis­crim­i­na­tion. Young Ru­dolph is teased by the other rein­deer and ex­cluded from their games be­cause his nose is dif­fer­ent. His taunters sing a dif­fer­ent tune, though, when Ru­dolph uses the trait to keep Christ­mas from be­ing can­celed. Burl Ives is the voice of Sam the Snow­man, who nar­rates the story and ren­ders the ti­tle tune (of course) plus “A Holly Jolly Christ­mas.”
