Rudolph and Santa will be heading from the Island of Misfit Toys to the auction house. The stop-motion figures used in the classic 1964 Rankin-Bass TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer will be auctioned off in November - and are expected to sell for somewhere between $150,000 and $250,000.
The figures currently belong to collector Peter Lutrario of Staten Island, NY, who purchased them in 2005. He decided to auction them off to leave the money for his children and grandchildren. What's your favorite Christmas movie or TV special? Do you ever watch them during non-Christmas months?
