Mrs. Donner is the wife of Donner, the mother of Rudolph and one of the supporting characters in the 1964 Rankin/Bass TV film, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.


Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerEdit

Mrs. Donner gives birth to Rudolph in a cave one spring. She and her husband Donner are shocked when their son's nose lights up. After Santa says that Rudolph can't join his sleigh team with his red nose, Mrs. Donner watches as Donner puts mud on their son's nose to make it look normal.

A year later, Rudolph goes to take part in the Reindeer Games and wears a fake nose put on by Donner. After Rudolph runs away after being laughed at by the other young bucks after his fake nose falls off and reveals his real one, Mrs. Donner wishes to help Donner look for him, but he tells her that this is a man's work. However as soon as he leaves, Mrs. Donner and Rudolph's crush Clarice go after him.

Months later, Mrs. Donner along with her husband and Clarice, is captured by Bumble. Soon after, Rudolph arrives and tries to save his parents and crush, but is knocked out by Bumble. Luckily, Rudolph's friends Hermey and Yukon Cornelius arrive and knocked out Bumble and pull out his teeth. After waking up, Bumble tries to attack the group, but Yukon sacrifices himself to save the others by knocking himself and Bumble off a cliff.

Mrs. Donner, Donner, Rudolph, Clarice and Hermey mourn Yukon, before going to Santa's workshop. Yukon soon arrives alive and well with a reformed Bumble. After Rudolph agrees to use his nose's light to guide Santa and his reindeer through the storm, Mrs. Donner along with Donner and Clarice, watches him leave.

Rudolph's Shiny New YearEdit
