From Justin Delbert :

Not as classic as the Rankin/Bass special years later, but still a great adaptation of Rudolph. Chances are, you might have seen this at least once in your life as it is public domain being used wherever possible. This includes Disney Sing-a-Longs. There has been dueling restorations/scans as of late, but the best one ended up being from The Library of Congress which has an original nitrate print using Silent Night instead of the famed song as this cartoon came out before the song. Reissue prints from years later would, of course, use the song Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
