It's the most wonderful time of the year, and time to cue the broadcast networks to air their designated favorites. 'Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer' will air tonight on CBS at 7 pm.

Rudolph is not quite like all of the other reindeer. Hermey, an elf who wants to become a dentist, has similar social problems. The two meet, and they sing a song about misfits and begin a journey together that is one of holiday lore.

Battling an Abominable Snowman, and utilizing the help of miner Yukon Cornelius the misfits are the unlikely crew destined to save Christmas.
