Rudolph is now immortalized in stamps

I always watched this animation and considered it as my Christmas tradition. I have been seeing it since I was still in grade school so, it was so nice to learn that they're now been immortalized in stamps.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer "stop and go animation" was created by Rankin/Bass as a Christmas television special for NBC on December 6, 1964 and it is now considered as the longest running Christmas TV special in history.

[Note: This stop-motion animation technique was called "Animagic." ]

This year Rudolph and his friends will bring their own brand of joy and nostalgia to four new Forever®

The stamp features still frames from the special, with Rudolph, Santa, and the Abominable Snow Monster all starring on stamps of their own, while a fourth stamp features Hermey, the elf who dreams of becoming a dentist, touching Rudolph’s glowing red nose.
