This is the original 1948 Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer cartoon that was made by the Jam Handy studio. It was directed by Max Fleischer.

The Jam Handy studio is not as well known as the other animation studios of the golden age but the information I have read about it is quite interesting. They were primarily producing industrial films, not theatrical cartoons.


This is the ending of one of the best Uncle Scrooge stories ever written, and one that pretty much sums up Scrooge McDuck.


I do like seeing Scrooge being so happy when he dives into his money like a porpoise, and burrows in it like a gopher, and especially when he throws it up in the air and lets it hit him on the head.

Michael Barrier has written a very nice essay on the genius of Scrooge’s creator, Carl Barks.
