One of The Mysteries In ‘Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ Has Been Solved

Why was the little “Dolly for Sue” on the Island of Misfit Toys?… Most of the toys explain why they’re there: the airplane can’t fly, the bird swims, the cowboy rides an ostrich, the train has square wheels, and the water gun shoots jelly. And who can forget Charlie-In-The-Box?. But the “Dolly for Sue” seems like a perfectly normal little doll, and never says why she’s there with the rest of the misfits. Arthur Rankin Jr., one of the show’s producers, says the doll’s problem stemmed from being abandoned by her owner. The doll was forgotten when its owner moved away. The King of Misfit toys rescues the doll and takes her to the Island of Misfit Toys, promising “a place where she will be loved.” Also to note, the doll was a last-minute addition to the show to fill time and wasn’t given much of a back story as a result, and if you look closely “Dolly for Sue” has no nose…..Ed
