FSogol's Advent Calendar Day 18: Life Lessons From Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer'

IMHO, No tv program represents generation X better than Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I’d have to include this show as an influence into punk rock and the DIY movement.

We may be all grown up, but most of us remember the old stop-motion creations of holiday classics from the 60s. They’re trotted out on cable television every December, reminding us of childhood and simpler times.

But were they secretly, radically progressive for their time?

Here are eight ways the Rankin/Bass cartoon of “Rudolph the Red Nosed-Reindeer” was way ahead of its time.


Sam Jones list is:

Being Different Is Celebrated
Haters To The Left
Meaningful Work Is Crucial
Down With The Patriarchy
Bullies Suck
Everyone Can Contribute
It’s Never Too Late To Change

to which I'll add
Popular consensus is often wrong
Respected authority figures can be wrong
