The Kind that Will Even Say, "How Do You Do?"

We're sitting down having a nice family evening; the fireplace is crackling and the four of us are snuggled up on the couch in our 'jamas, watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

We get to the part where Rudolph, Herbie, and Yukon Cornelius land on the Island of Misfit Toys.

Andy: Why is the doll a 'misfit' again?

MM: No one has ever known. It's one of life's great mysteries.

HRH: Maybe she's just really boring to play with...

My son; pondering the impoderable.

I have always wondered about that doll... I think he's a genius.

According to Wikipedia:

* Misfit Dolly, or "A Dolly for Sue (as she calls herself)" is a seemingly normal girl rag doll with red hair and a red gingham (checkered) dress. Her misfit problem is never explained on the special, but was revealed on NPR's Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! news quiz show broadcast December 8, 2007. The show says that when Arthur Rankin (Rudolph's producer) was inteviewed, he said Dolly's problem was psychological, caused by being abandoned by her mistress and suffering depression from being unloved.[1]
