Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Other mistake: At the end of the show when the misfit toys are being delivered, the elf in Santa's sleigh gives an umbrella to each of the misfits so they can glide down with the exception of the bird, who jumps off, apparently forgetting that he is a misfit toy and can't fly; as he stated earlier in the show, he can only swim.

Other mistake: In the opening credits, when it pans to the yellow card showing the names of the songs that Burl Ives sings, his name is spelled "BURI" instead of "BURL".

Other mistake: Right before the snowman starts singing "Silver and Gold", a seal hands him a banjo. However, when you hear the song playing, there are no banjo sounds in any of the music.

Other mistake: At the end of the film, Rudolph's parents see him off as he takes off with Santa's sleigh. However, Rudolph's father is Donner and should have been part of the sleigh team.

Suggested correction: Donner passed the reins to Rudolph and stayed behind so Rudolph could take his place.

Factual error: During the opening credits, the show's copyright date is shown in Roman numerals as MCLXIV. In Arabic numbers, that's 1164 - it should have been MCMLXIV for 1964.

Trivia: Rudolph and others visit the island of misfit toys and promise to help them. In the original version, the Misfits don't get mentioned again, and the producers were swamped with letters from children, upset that the Misfits didn't get the help they were promised. A new scene was produced and included in future versions, where Santa and Rudolph give the toys new homes.

Question: Yukon has a gun - why he didn't just shoot the snow creature at the cave?

Answer: Plot wise, if the snow creature had been killed, it would have ruined the happy ending. Yukon has a kind nature, and he probably wouldn't kill anything.
