When the evil Winterbolt learns the secret to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's nose--it was bestowed upon him by a goddess and must be used only for acts of good--he plots to conquer the world on Christmas Eve by destroying Rudolph, Santa's guiding light. As Rudolph and Frosty travel south to work with a circus, Winterbolt puts his plan into action--first, he'll lift the spell that's protecting Frosty from melting in the southern heat, and, second, he'll cajole Rudolph into committing a crime that would disenchant the magical power of his nose and transform him into an ordinary reindeer. It's fun and thrills for Rudolph and Frosty as they team up for a joyous holiday celebration in July.
The sequel of all animated sequels, RUDOLPH AND FROSTY'S CHRISTMAS IN JULY makes reference to a number of Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass films--RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN, and FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, to name a few. This movie features some high-quality animation and a number of wonderful Irving Berlin compositions. Only imagineers Rankin and Bass could deliver such holiday cheer just in time for the 4th of July. This summertime Christmas classic features the vocal talents of stars such as Jackie Vernon, Red Buttons, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, and Shelley Winters.
