Hello Sensitivity, Meet Absurdity

Here is a review from Amazon.com by a user about the Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer DVD, the best Christmas special EVER. I have highlighted the points that make me want to vomit. This is one of those people who ruins life for everyone else with their attempts to “help” or make things “safer.”

This is a great holiday special. I especially like the Island of Misfit Toys detail. The only reason I gave the special 4 stars rather than 5 stars is the detail in which Hermey pulls out the Bumble’s teeth to make him safe(this could not be done to real-life animals that bite, for they cannot live without their teeth. I think this is improperly teaching the viewer that an animal who bites can have its teeth pulled to make it less harmful to humans. Therefore, I believe that this segment can easily send the wrong message to children.) Nevertheless, the special shows how okay it is to be different. Sometimes I cry when I watch the Island of Misfit Toys segment, but light up again with a smile when I see the misfit toys being dropped out of the sleigh at the end. If you have the older VHS, be sure to upgrade to this DVD version with the original song, “We’re A Couple of Misfits.” The “Fame and Fortune” song is included as a bonus feature.
