Rudolph/Red Nosed

    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is on CBS right now.
    I loved this as a kid. Watched it every year. Seeing it 30 years later in HD is kicking.

    I wonder if anyone owns the actual puppets (are they puppets?) or dolls of Rudolph and his friends that were used to make the show. How cool would that be to own the actual Rudolph??

    The Grinch is also on ABC right now. Although there's only about five minutes left.

    I don't know about the puppets. It always looks like it's a mixture of solid objects that are animated. Watching it on HD, you can see hair on the deer.

    and who the heck puts Rudolph and the Grinch opposite one another ... let me guess, Frosty is on NBC.

    Two all-time can't-miss classics, and if they're on this early, I suppose they'll air them a few times.

    Along with Charlie Brown.

    I also found it strange they were on in NOVEMBER

    I guess TV is taking Wal-Mart's lead on Christmas

    Yeah, definitely not puppets, I know. More like dolls? I read somewhere they had to move them for every click of the camera to create motion.

    I hated the Frosty show so much...always cried when he melted. What a mean thing to do to little kids. :'(

    Claymation, I believe.

    No, claymation is more like Gumby or the dancing raisins. Rudolph is the kind of animation that gets shot frame by frame. Seems like a lot of work for the life story of a mutant reindeer, but I guess they knew what they were doing.
