after making poor Rudolph feel terrible; in the cartoon he is even shamed into leaving home and putting himself into danger. While I feel empathy for Rudolph, I've always hated the line in the song that says "Then all the reindeer loved him" after Santa asked him to help guide his sleight. "Then?" Then they loved him? after they "used to laugh and call him names" and not let him take part in any reindeer games, all the crap they doled out to him when they couldn't use him. Screw them -- Rudolph should have gone into business for himself.
