Rudolph, The Red-Hosed Reindeer

Ten Year Anniversary!!

Rudolph, The Red-Hosed Reindeer
by David Cerda


David Cerda’s parody of the classic children’s television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” returns for its Ten Year Anniversary!

“Rudolph, The Red-Hosed Reindeer is a story very near and dear to my heart. I immediately related to the original story as a child, as did any kid who felt ‘different’,” says Cerda, whose red-hosed Rudolph and his misfit friends — Herbie, the “not gay enough” elf who wants to be a dentist and Yukon Cornelia, the butch prospector with a deep, dark secret — search for happiness… and attempt to outrun the horrifyingly tacky Abominable Drag Beast.

lt doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice… you definitely want to catch the show that Chris Jones (Chicago Tribune) dubbed “an ideal holiday escape for anyone who detests the commercialism of traditional Christmas shows” and that Jack Helbig (Chicago Reader) congratulates as “a copycat crime turn[ed] into a work of art.”
