Rudolph's Hermey the Elf Wants to be a Dentist

The animated classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," airs Tuesday, December 9 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. And the American Dental Association is using Rudolph as a sneaky way to education children about dental health. Remember Hermey the elf, from the island of misfit toys? His lifelong dream was to become a dentist!

  1. That is right! I totally forgot about the dreams of the toys from the Island of Misfit Toys. But educating kids about the importance of dental care through media is a great idea. It only seems like the media makes dentist offices look like something out of a horror movie. Who wants to go to a place where they are going to hurt you, and pull out your teeth?
