Every December they broadcast classic Christmas cartoons like Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. These are great little stories that put many of us in the holiday spirit as we watched when we were younger. But in this out of control PC Culture, old movies/cartoons now face heavy scrutiny, especially if the main character faces adversity. These overly sensitive critics are now going after Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer over bullying…

Critics honed in on the fact that Rudolph was bullied as if this was news… The HuffPost tweeted that the TV Classic was “seriously problematic.” Another critic claimed the story was about exploitation. But the creators of the show held a very different view. They defended the Christmas classic and pointed out what somehow went over the heads of these overly-sensitive critics.

The creators of the show have taken critics to task before, admitting that Rudolph was penned in a different time, but that it has value to young viewers even in the digital age.

“I think all kids are looking for guidance. I think all kids feel slightly inferior… kids have problems, whatever they may be. And to see other characters that have problems, they can associate with them,” Arthur Rankin, Jr. said in an interview in 2010. “And when the characters are relieved of their problems by their own actions — like Rudolph became the lead because he was very needed and he fulfilled a big role — Hermey became a dentist because he conquered Bumble.”

“And kids love to see someone of their own stride, their own age or their own inferiority, achieve things,” the claymation pioneer continued. “That makes them feel good. I think that’s probably the reason these films last so long, because in all our films, that happens. The bad guy becomes the good guy at the end, he’s reformed, and the underdog fulfills his quest.”

How did the critics miss this when they heard the song Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer? It’s right there in the lyrics that Rudolph gets bullied and in the end, Santa realizes the error of his ways and asks for Rudolph’s help. The same thing happens in the claymation. Why is it suddenly a problem?
