Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys is a 2001 computer-animated feature film directed by Bill Kowalchuk for GoodTimes Entertainment. It was released on video and DVD on October 30, 2001. The film revisits classic characters like Hermey the Elf (now a D.D.S.) and Rudolph, who is now famous at the Arctic tundra, and uses the characters from the 1964 Rankin-Bass TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and takes place several years after the events of that special (despite Rudolph and Clarice appearing younger in this film than they did at the end of the original special). However, technically and legally speaking, it is a sequel to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie, which Goodtimes had released in 1998. Kowalchuk directed both of the Goodtimes movies, and Kathleen Barr provided the voice of Rudolph in both films, though there is little to no character continuity between the two films, instead attempting to establish it in the Rankin-Bass fictional universe.
