Synopsis / Plot
Rudolph lives with his pretty mommy in a nice house. Mommy tells him to hang his stocking before climbing into his bed on Christmas eve. He tosses under the covers, remembering how he was teased for having a red nose.

Meanwhile up at the North Pole, good old Santa, speaking in a manly baritone, is preparing for his night of deliveries. Unfortunately it's awfully foggy out. The journey is unusually dangerous because of poor visibility; Santa's reindeer are forced to fly close to the ground, & crash into a tree. So they fly a little higher, & nearly get struck by a plain.

They make it to Reindeer Town & the home of Rudolph, where Santa see's the brightly glowing red nose. Santa had a great idea. He wakes Rudolph & says "I need you tonight! To lead all our deer on the rest of our flight!"

Rudolph leaves a note for his mom & joins Santa, insuring the rest of the journey is perfectly safe. And the next day, Rudolph is celebrated throughout Reindeer Town, & Santa gives him a gold medal. Nothing really special, but little kids'll love it.
