Funny / Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Hermey and Yukon have several funny exchanges together:
Yukon Cornelius: LAND HO!!!
Hermey No kidding.
Yukon: Fog's as thick as peanut butter.
Hermey: You mean pea soup.
Yukon: You eat what you like, I'll eat what I like!
Earlier than the above two, after they get away from the Bumble for the first time:
Yukon: ...And we'll all be rich with the biggest silver strike this side of Hudson Bay! SILVERRRRRR!
Hermey: I thought you wanted gold.
Yukon: I changed my mind!
After Yukon comes back alive with the now-redeemed Bumble, he gives us this great line:
Didn't I ever tell you about Bumbles? Bumbles
When Yukon offers to give Rudolph and Hermey a ride, he yells "Mush!" at his dogs over and over. When they don't respond, he says "Like this!" and begins pulling the sled himself. What do the dogs do? Leap in the back of the sled and enjoy the free ride their master is giving them.
Then there is the fact that the breeds of sled dog that Yukon owns include a Dachshund, a young St. Bernard, a Schnauzer, a Cocker Spaniel, and a Poodle. None of them are fit for sled-pulling.
On the opposite end of the spectrum:
, WILL YOU?!
Listening to the Head Elf, you'd think he really hates that rabbit.
The head elf yelling at Hermey:
Head Elf: Now listen, we have dolls that cry, talk, walk, blink and run a temperature. We don't need any chewing dolls!
Even funnier in retrospect, since chewing dolls did in fact come out during the 1980s. Even before that, there's always Nutcrackers.
WEREN'T YOU AT ELF PRACTICE?!! This moment from Rudolph, after Clarice says that he's cute:
I'm cute! I'm cute!
She said I'm CUUUUUUTTTTEEE!!! *cue Rudolph
f lying in the air* After the 'We Are Santa's Elves' number, Santa quickly says, "Needs work" and ducks out. After Mrs. Claus reassures the elves, the head elf whirls on them.
The Head Elf has this deliciously over-the-top sweet voice when talking to Santa, but as soon as he's gone...
Head Elf: That sounded terrible! The tenor section was weak!
During the musical number, an elf will sometimes smack around another elf, which can lead to giggles from some people.
In particular, there's one elf who keeps getting hit in the eye with the feather in another elf's cap. He solves the problem by taking out a pair of scissors and snipping the feather off.
The sexism, which we can look and laugh at.
Narrator: (After Yukon's Disney Death)
Yes, they were very sad at the loss of their friend, but they knew that the best thing they could do was get the women back to town.
Donner: (After his wife wants to look for Rudolph with him) No! This is MAN'S work!
