Underrated and Under-Appreciated: Olive The Other Reindeer

This holiday season, and really every holiday season, TV gets inundated with Christmas movies. There are the old stand-bys, the weird Rankin Bass claymation movies (Year Without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, etc), the classics (White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, It’s A Wonderful Life) and the newer animated and live action Christmas movies (The Grinch, Polar Express, The Muppet Christmas Carol) and every year thousands of people look to ABC Family and their 25 Days of Christmas to see their favorites. 1,268 more words
