As has been reported, the original Rudolph puppets after belived to be lost in the 1970's, were actually mixed in with one family's Christmas decor, casually diplayed about the house throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's every Christmas season. (and I do mean casually) The photos below show various family Christmas photos with Rudolph & Santa barely visable in the background (our duo were never meant to be the subject of the photos back then).
