Misfit Doll on Island of Misfit Toys

"A scooter for Jimmy! A Dolly for Sue!
The kind that will even say, "How do you do!"
When Christmas Day is here!
The most WONDERFUL day of the year!"

"It's going to be a wonderful Christmas!
I've got my own website, did you hear?
And Rudolph's promised we'll be leaving
the Island of Misfit Toys this year!"

Why am I on the Island of Misfit Toys?
Misfit Doll -- I haven't any dreams left to dream ~ Hear Dolly ~
This seems to be the question pondered by Misfit philosophers. Rick Goldschmidt in his book "The Enchanted World of Rankin Bass" writes: In the original broadcast the Dolly's screen time is mere seconds. I don't believe Romeo Muller really gave the character much thought. She was granted more screen time in the 1965 and 1997 broadcasts which ultimately led many a fan to wonder what was wrong with her. Arthur Rankin says that Dolly's problem is more psychological. As it is never mentioned in the script why in particular the doll is a misfit, some offer this: Charlie-in-the-Box tells Rudolph, Hermey and Yukon when they arrive on the Island of Misfit Toys that King Moonracer flies over the earth each night and brings unloved toys to the Island of Misfits. Dolly is perhaps there because she feels she is unloved (as King Moonracer explains about misfits) and perhaps the little girl who onced played with her is now grown up and Dolly now sits in a box, unwanted, waiting to be loved by another little girl again. "In certain circles," this explanation is offered and widely accepted by Misfit Philosophers. In 1998, CVS released beanies toys. The Misfit Doll tag reads: "I'm a little rag doll who just wants a friend. I think that will help my broken heart mend."
