Blogmas: Move Over Rudolph, there’s a New Reindeer in Town

So, I was watching ELF the other day and all the sudden, it hit me, Buddy is the human version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

Hear me out and let me know if you see it too or if I’m reaching:

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose . . .

that differentiated him from the rest of the reindeer.

Likewise, Buddy the Elf has his own physical “deformity” that separates him from the rest of the elves.

All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names . . .

Neither Rudolph, nor Buddy seem to fit in anywhere they go. Even though Santa is kind to Buddy in ELF, he still sends him away from the North Pole. Rudolph doesn’t fit in with the other reindeer and so he leaves as well. However . . .

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say . . .

Then all the reindeer loved him and they shouted out with glee!

All the sudden Santa need’s Rudolph’s bright nose or Buddy’s ability to fix the sleigh. After Rudolph/Buddy saves the day, they are welcomed back at the North pole with open arms

Ergo, Buddy is human Rudolph!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Buddy the Elf) you’ll go down in history! (or get made into a children’s book)

Whether or not the directors intended this parallelism, I could not help but to notice it! What do you guys think?

Happy Blogmas!

  1. I can see how you drew those parallels between Buddy and Rudolph. It’s interesting, I just realized after reading your post that I don’t really like Christmas theme movies like that. Happy Blogmas, Kayla Ann!

  2. I love your twist on this, I never would have thought of it! It especially stands out since Elf was on TV when I got home this afternoon haha!

  3. Rudolf is sweet, but Elf is one of my favorite Christmas movies. I was an adult when it came out, but goodness, I feel like a kid whenever I watch it.
