For this character's appearances, are Rudolph's Shiny New Year and Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July the same representations of the character seen in the Rankin/Bass special from 1964? Also, should we include the Fleischer Rudolph here as the same character, or treat it as a separate representation of the character with its own page? —Scott (talk) 23:46, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
- In all the Rankin/Bass productions, it's always the same Rudolph, with the same voice, by Billie Mae Richards (in contrast to Santa, who changes frequently in both design and voice). I don't know if there's enough to say about the Fleischer Rudolph to warrant a seperate page (he doesn't have much of a personality in the short), and it seems more like stuff which could be covered in the adaptation page for the original song/story. There may well be other Rudolph depictions out there, though, which are more notable or more developed (there was a direct to video cel/"2D" animated Rudolph, as well as a recent DVD called Rudolph and the Land of Misfit Toys or somesuch, with the characters intended as the same ones from the original Rankin-Bass special). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 23:52, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
- In the Triple Ds Rudolph becomes a villain.
