* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The 1998 film and its sequel have been long out of print, both on VHS and DVD, with no plans for re-release for either. The sequel aired on Creator/ABCFamily for a time until their rights lapsed in 2013. [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation [=DreamWorks=] Classics]] is believed to own both films (as with the 1964 TV special), but they've been sitting on both ever since.

* ChannelHop: The 1964 special has went through a couple of networks over the years every Christmas season. Creator/{{NBC}} held the broadcast rights to the special until 1972, when Creator/{{CBS}} snapped up the rights, and it has remained on the network since then. However, with the acquisition of [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation [=DreamWorks=] Classics]] (the special's current rightsholder and main licensee of the Rudolph character) by NBC's parent company, [=NBCUniversal=], in 2016, the special could return to NBC once again when CBS's rights expire.
