It's the Bumble!

I have an odd relationship with Rudolph.

I hated it as a kid.  I thought it was weird, and scary, and I was all like "this movie makes no sennnnnnnse!"

But, as an adult, I find myself really drawn to it.

I love the Bumble.  Yukon Cornelius make me smile.  And it cracks me up to hear my students say, "I want to be a dentist!"

You'd think, after being so frightened of it as a kid, I wouldn't want anything to do with it as an adult.
I mean, I still hate Pinocchio with a vengence.

Do you have any holiday movie - or any movies - like this?
Hated as a kid, but loved as an adult?

(Side note:  my students are singing "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" for our holiday program, and gosh darn if it isn't going to be the cutest thing.)
(New thought:  maybe this is why I've been wanting to watch it this year, because I'm reminded of it whenever my students talk about the program, which is oh, every day.)

    Oh my brother and I used to say: "I want to be... a dentist!" soooo much around this time of year. I'm sure we drove our mother nuts.
