A beloved Christmas classic has taken a dark turn with the addition of some modern touches.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, which turns 50 this year, airs on CBS this Saturday. As beloved as the stop-motion animated movie might be, it could also seem a bit stale to younger audiences.
Enter Jimmy Kimmel. The comedian mixed dialogue from an episode of Maury into the Christmas special in an attempt to freshen it up for the #youths.
On its own, Rudolph is pretty bleak at times. It’s not just that the young reindeer is rejected from those reindeer games; there’s also the Island of Misfit Toys, each of which was kicked out for being different and possibly defective. These themes are perfect fodder for a trashy television mashup.
Ever wonder why Donner initially rejected Rudolph for being so different? Maury’s got the envelope ready.
