"Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
I grew up watching Rankin and Bass stop-motion animated holiday television shows and they hold a special place in my heart. "Frosty The Snowman" was narrated by Jimmy Durante, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" was narrated by Fred Astaire, and the classic special you see here, "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" was narrated by Burl Ives! It airs tonight at 8PM...I'm glad it is still around (it first aired in 1964, the year I was born, so it is as old as me!).
