Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys is a CGI direct-to-video movie, produced and directed by Bill Kowalchuck, and adapted by Michael Aschner from the original story by Kevin Hoops, that was originally released to home video on October 30, 2001. Although following up the 1998 animated movie, it is actually a sequel to the Rankin/Bass Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It was presented by the Cayre Brothers, the founders of GoodTimes Entertainment, with Golden Books Family Entertainment, and produced by GoodTimes, with Tundra Productions, Inc., animated at Colorland Animation in China using Maya. The voice cast included Rick Moranis, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Richard Dreyfuss.
The film revisits classic characters such as Hermey the Elf and Rudolph, who is now famous at the North Pole. Not satisfied with being a "freak show" performing tricks with his nose, Rudolph tags along when Hermey travels to the Island of Misfit Toys to give King Moonracer a root canal. Meanwhile, the Evil Toy Taker is stealing all of the toys from there, claiming that he's saving them from the inevitable fact that children eventually outgrow their toys and throw them out. It's up to Rudolph, Clarice, Hermey, Yukon Cornelius, and the Abominable Snowmonster to stop him.

- On the ABC Family airings, the following edits were made:
- The German dub opens with the prologue that briefly recaps Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie which surges into the opening shot. The opening credits is in the different font, and the closing credits scrolls over the still of the last shot.
