Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer has always been and will always be my favorite Christmas time classic. But I’ve recently wondered why Yukon Cornelius would lick his pick axe after throwing it up in the air and landed it in the snow and then picked it up and licked it. I assume he’d been searching for gold and silver or silver and gold. But I was wrong.
The odd pickax-licking behavior of Yukon Cornelius in “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” has finally been explained in this deleted scene!!
So now we know and who can blame him?!?!?
