There are two versions of the Rudolph TV special, right? The original in which the would-be elf dentist yanks all the monster's teeth (really nasty), and the politically correct version where the dentist merely fixes a toothache (nice).
I ask because I participated in a forum a few years ago in which some really annoying and arrogant members insisted the toothache version couldn't possibly exist, merely because they hadn't seen it, even though several other members said they had. (I have seen both versions.) I was wondering if consensus has been reached yet among the amateur TV historians who inhabit these discussion groups and the two-version story is now settled fact.
As a matter of history, the toothache version was introduced after a few years of the yank version, presumably because yanking all his teeth violated the monster's right to be who he is. I don't know how many years the toothache version held sway, but then, for some reason unknown to me, the network went back to the yank version, which explains how the naysayers could have missed the toothache version.
