* AnimatedAdaptation: The Rankin-Bass special, of course. However, many years before the famous stop-motion special, the Jam Handy animation studio made a short subject adaptation of the cartoon (hewing closer to the original story) in [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1944]], directed by none other than [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Max Fleischer.]] The song was not written yet during its original run, but a 1948 re-release of it dubbed in the song over the opening.

Added DiffLines:
* RealityIsUnrealistic: The 2001 sequel depicts Rudolph with stumpy antlers only slightly larger than his younger form. This looks like a continuity SnapBack, but reindeers in fact shed their antlers around winter.

* RoleReprisal: Billie May Richards reprised Rudolph in every Rankin-Bass featurette until her death. A curious example occurs in the 2006 special, where Kathleen Barr from the Goodtimes animation reprises Rudolph, despite the interpretation following the Rankin-Bass continuity.

* {{Determinator}}: Before they even find Rudolph, Santa and his reindeer do an action film level effort to get at least some of the presents delivered on time.

Added DiffLines:
* GenreSavvy: The reindeers perform ice skating games, and coat themselves with pillows in anticipation of FailuresOnIce antics. * MommasBoy: Rudolph gets teased for being this as well as for his nose. Makes some sense since his mother is the only reindeer shown to be kind to Rudolph at first.
