Rudolph, with your nose so bright, wont you be on CBS tonight

Why, yes! Yes he will! Tonight, for the 46th time on TV, and 38th time on CBS, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will bring holiday joy to everyone watching. The special November 30th airing, which starts at 8pm, will be the first time the stop-motion animated special will run, but it wont be the last! Look for local listings to see when you can catch a replay. As the longest-running holiday special in television history, the digitally remastered Rudolph special recounts the tale of a shy, young reindeer whose Christmas spirit is dampened because of his shiny red nose. Frustrated by their inability to join in Christmastown’s Reindeer games, Rudolph and his friend Hermey set out on their own, fleeing to the island of Misfit Toys in the Arctic wilderness with Yukon Cornelius. When they learn that bad weather may cause Christmas to be canceled, Santa tasks Rudolph to save the day! Check it out tonight, at 8pm on CBS!

As Sam the Snowman tells us, Rudolph the reindeer who is born with a glowing red nose. For most of his life, this is something embarrassing for the family, so much so that his father, Donner, helps Rudolph hide his nose. Like his elf friend Hermey, Rudolph is a misfit. But like most misfits, Rudolph learns this is just a phase to grow through, and his new friends Fireball and Clarice soon learn to recognize how great Rudolph is. A daring battle with the Abominable Snowman later, and it becomes Rudolph’s time to shine — literally! Thus, the stop-motion animated holiday classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. CBS will premiere this year’s edition on November 30th at 8pm, providing an hour of fast-approaching Christmas fun!

Way back in 1939, Robert L. May wrote a brief holiday poem, hoping to inspire those who read it with the Christmas spirit. Fast forward 70 years, and that innocent little poem has grown into one of the most famous and iconic holiday superstars of all time, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The stop-motion animated special telling Rudolph’s story has run every year since 1964, introducing n00bs to the holiday hero at any chance. This year, just as it has done since 1972, the honor goes to CBS, debuting the one-hour special on November 30th at 8pm. It’s just not Christmas without it, so be sure you TOON in!!

Rudolph is one of those all-time classics, based on the poem that created the character back in 1939. In the mid 60s, the stop motion animated special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer first graced the airwaves on NBC, switching over to a regular appearance on CBS in 1972. In fact, the toon has become so popular and expected that it’s one of the few holiday specials the network airs more than once! The first of which will hit CBS on November 30th, at 8pm. Get in the spirit!
