Critic Reviews for Rudolph's Shiny New Year
It all adds up to a largely nonsensical wintertime fairy tale, but with Rankin/Bass' seasonal powers in the process of diminishing, Rudolph's Shiny New Year represents a last-ditch effort to synthesize a number of imaginative concepts into a single story.
The songs, again by Marks, are syrupy. The Animagic process quickly becomes aninoying. And Muller's plot proves even more impenetrable.
I'm sad to say, the specials stopped being essential - they ran out of ideas.
In its best moments, Shiny New Year lives up to the howling madness at the center of all Rankin/Bass.
Audience Reviews for Rudolph's Shiny New Year
Rudolph saves the day once again in the all new adventure Rudolph's Shiny New Year. When the Baby New Year, Happy, goes missing Father Time turns to Rudolph for help. Red Skelton voices Father Time and sings several of the song (which are quite lighthearted and fun). And the animators create a number of interesting characters that play on the time theme (Eon, Big Ben, General Ticker). However the storytelling is rather poor, and seems to be full of plot holes and contrivances. Still, overall Rudolph's Shiny New year is an incredibly entertaining film.
Overall, I just thought this was weird. So I give it points for that, but not much else.
Number 10 a cute little 50 minute film made back in 1976 by Rankin/Bass Productions. an animated fiilm with puppet like figures. And the story is based on Rudolph finding baby New Year or we are stuck on Dce 31 forever. Has educational parts, excellent for ages 1 to 4 years old. Also good for parents a cute old school chrildrens christmas film. 4 1/2 stars.
