* Santa brings up he won't be able to get his sleigh off the ground without Rudolph's father, Donner, and yet at end of the movie, he is seen flying his sleigh just fine, despite having only seven of what should be nine reindeer. (Not counting Donner, since he, along with his wife and Clarice, was watching Rudolph lead the sleigh in the full uncut version)

** Perhaps Santa utilized an assembly line in the past, but after the misfit toys were unwittingly created by overworked elves, he switched to more old-fashioned style.

* So Santa gets to judge the morality of all the world's children, but he turns a blind eye when it comes to his own reindeer?


Added DiffLines:

* If Rudolph's eyes were bright enough to cut through fog, then wouldn't that hurt everyone's eyes?

* There's something that always bothered me with the "Chewing dolls" line. Sure, after the special came out there were chewing CabbagePatchKids dolls (See the Funny section), but what about Nutcrackers? A classic holiday symbol! That's if you count them as dolls, that is.

* In the end credits, the elves are dropping off the Misfit Toys to new homes. One elf picks out the Bird, takes a look at him, and the umbrellas he's been giving to the other toys, puts the umbrella away, and tosses the Bird down. And then you remember the Bird was a misfit ''because it couldn't fly''. That's assuming, of course, that Santa didn't fix that.

**Most of that bothered me too. Although to be fair he was unconscious when his teeth were ripped out.

* Yukon is seen carrying what appears to be a [[http://i483.photobucket.com/albums/rr191/PAFOA_mauser/rudolph_yukon_cu_shocked.jpg revolver]] for the majority, if not the entire span of the film. He had plenty of situations where a gun would be handy, and yet never uses it.

* The full cut shows that Yukon Cornelius kept licking his pickaxe because he was prospecting for peppermint, and found it at the very end. Most people would think that mining for ''anything'' in the Arctic Circle would be crazy (since there is no tectonic plate up there that would contain minerals), especially when it is not something that you mine in the first place. That means that, like Hermey and Rudolf, Cornelius was a misfit that was vindicated in the end.

It would also give relevance to why Cornelius is about the only adult who isn't a pompous, antagonistic jerk to the two at first.




to:

* The Elves contempt for Hermey makes more sense from the perspective he doesn't want to make gifts for darling little kids in favour of becoming a dentist. Saying he doesn't want to make little kids happy can be taken the wrong way easily enough, but to want instead a job that in the cliche cartoon world is often feared and associated with pain by children really digs himself in deeper.

* The misfit toys lived on the island for a presumably long time, and possibly set up extensive relationships and culture while living there. When the toys are delivered by Santa, it is very possible that these toys will never meet again.
**Even more bittersweet if one considers the aforementioned possibility that these toys will be sent back to the island.
