Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
The TV version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer differs slightly from May’s original 1939 story; in the original story, Rudolph grows up not at the North Pole but in a reindeer-populated village elsewhere and is discovered by Santa during (not before) his annual gift-delivery run… The TV show’s other songs, including “A Holly, Jolly Christmas,” “Silver and Gold,” and “The Most Wonderful Day of the Year,” were also composed by Johnny Marks… Though created for a U.S. network, the animated show was filmed in Japan and its soundtrack was recorded in Canada… Folk singer Burl Ives provided the voice of the TV show’s narrator, Sam the Snowman… The holiday hit Frosty the Snowman was also recorded by Gene Autry (in 1950) and was also the subject of a Rankin/Bass TV special, first broadcast in 1969.
