More information:

The Archive of American Television interviewed Arthur Rankin, Jr.

Lots of Rudolph fans contributed to the Wikipedia article, it seems.

A full cast list and other tidbits can be found on IMDb.com.

Ifyou can’t get enough Rudolph or Rankin/Bass, you may enjoy the book, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Making Of The Rankin/Bass Holiday Classic. (Buying through this link will help the Christmas Stocking podcast; but there’s plenty to look at without buying).
