Okay, one thing I've felt pretty strongly about for all these years, and nobody seems to have brought it up, is that Santa is depicted as an outright bastard. Here's what I'm talking about:
  • He is extremely mean and callous to Rudolph's family
  • Pays no attention to the elf's song and offers only criticism
  • Is disrespectful and rude to his wife
  • Only acknowledges Rudolph's abnormality when it serves his needs
So, I've wondered why they chose to portray Santa as a complete I the only one who sees this?
