The Misfit Toys may not be the star of the stop-motion classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but they are just as well-known as Santa's gifted sled-puller. An addition to the original story, Rudolph discovers the Island of Misfit Toys after leaving Santa's Village, populated by toys deemed unsuitable for giving to children.
Ruled over by King Moonracer (a winged lion, because why not?) the island's inhabitants feature an airplane that won't fly, a swimming bird, an ostrich-riding cowboy, and a polka-dotted elephant, to name a few. Seeing them brought to life made every child realize that each toy is deserving of love, whatever their faults. That's a dangerous excuse for hoarding, but memorable nonetheless.
