Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

(Dolly for Sue)

Dolly for Sue

A skooter 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!

Hello! It's going to be a wonderful Christmas this year! Because Rudolph's promised we'll be leaving the Island of Misfit Toys! And, I've got my own website now at DollyforSue.com, too!

Why am I on the Island of Misfit Toys?

Dolly for Sue -- I haven't any dreams left to dream The tag on the CVS bean bag toy of the little Dolly reads: "I'm a little rag doll who just wants a friend. I think that will help my broken heart mend." This seems to be the ever-burning question for Misfit philosophers of all time. 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.
