    How come on the family channel they play all the old Santa Claus is coming to town, the year without Santa Claus, Rudolph Christmas in July, they play them over and over all month long, but not once do they show Rudolph the red nose reindeer?!?! Makes no sense, what is wrong with the original Rudolph?

      Hi Denise, Unfortunately CBS owns exclusive rights to air the original Rudolph. No other channel is allowed to air it.

    I think the movie schedule was pretty poor this year. I’m sorry but I always look forward to the 25 days of Christmas countdown and this was disappointing. 2 rare sightings of Rudolph the red Nosed reindeer on the schedule, which I didn’t catch. Not sure if the Grinch cartoon, or frosty was even on. There were endless/too many episodes of Polar Express, Home Alone, Elf. Only a rare ‘Classic Christmas’ cartoon. Please change it up and put in MORE of the classic cartoony Christmas shows. (Frosty, Grinch, Rudolph, Thank you so much:)
    Merry Christmas

    Why are you only playing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer once this year?

    What!? I missed it too. It has never been on before Thanksgiving before. It is usually the week after. This is not fair! Please show it again.
