Added DiffLines:

* FairForItsDay: Seeing Rudolph find acceptance AFTER the others discover that his nose could be useful can leave a modern viewer with a bad taste in their mouth. However, in the 1960s, [[UsefulNotes/{{TheHaysCode}} The Hays Code]] was still in affect, meaning that filmmakers could not show non-conforming characters in a positive light. At the time, it was radical for a mainstream family film to suggest that differences should not only be accepted, but celebrated.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: No one will love you for your uniqueness, unless you're useful to them. Rudolph would still be an outcast and not a celebrity, if his defining trait could serve others no purpose.

** Fans of both the 2-D 1998 movie and the "originals" will agree that the 3-D ''Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer & the Island of Misfit Toys'' never should have happened. Arguably a song or two and using the original designs the other sequels altered are the only saving graces, if even that.
* FirstInstallmentWins: None of the sequels will ever hold a candle to the original 1964 special. Note however, [[SequelDisplacement it is not the first film of Rudolph altogether]] (that honour goes to the Max Fleischer short, which is received well, but far more obscure).

* AccidentalAesop: ''Rudolph's Shiny New Year'' has one about embracing the things that make you unique, but it sort of blurs into "if your physical deformity makes people laugh, let them. Be glad you're making them so happy."

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Hermie's mouth movements frequently don't match the words he's saying, which at times can be unintentionally hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

** Did Comet exclude Rudolph from the reindeer games out of prejudice, or was it for the good of the other young reindeer who might be distracted and he chose the wrong words in Rudolph's presence?

** The 1964 TV special enjoyed regular annual rotation on NBC before they lost the broadcast rights to CBS in 1972. 44 years later, NBC's parent company [=NBCUniversal=] bought special rights-holder Creator/DreamWorksAnimation, not only making NBC the ''owner'' of the special, but also [[LaserGuidedKarma leading to a possibility of]] [[WhosLaughingNow CBS losing the rights in the future]].
