Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Island Of Misfit Toys

The Toy Taker (real name Mr. Cuddles) is the main antagonist of the 2001 GoodTimes Entertainment film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Island Of Misfit Toys.

Role in the filmEdit

Mr. Cuddles is a teddy bear who was originally owned by a boy named Steven. As years went by, Steven got older and became more interested in video games and unintentionally began to neglect Mr. Cuddles. One day, Mr. Cuddles was accidentally thrown out into a garbage heap which caused the teddy bear (who thought he was deliberately thrown out) to vow not to allow any other toys be cast out after their owners grew up, and thus The Toy Taker was born.

Mr. Cuddles donned a fedora, trenchcoat, mittens, and wore stilts and used a magic flute (it is never mentioned how he got ahold of it) to hypnotise other toys into his clutches, and hid them in his secret hideout, located inside an iceberg.

After stealing the toys right out of Santa Claus' workshop, Rudolph, Hermey, Yukon Cornelius, Bumble, and Clarice set out to find and capture the Toy Taker. He succeeds in stealing toys from Castaway Cove, but after plundering the Island of Misfit Toys, the heroes disguise themselves as toys and sneak aboard the blimp he uses as transport. After the heroes are discovered, Toy Taker sends them through a trapdoor. They fly back on board and seem to corner him, but he escapes to the top of the blimp, followed by Yukon. Yukon is thrown off the blimp by a passing Boomerang That Doesn't Come Back, only to be rescued by Bumble below. (Who couldn't come aboard the blimp because he was "too...Ginormous!") .

Rudolph and Clarice then scare the Toy Taker with the light from Rudolph's nose, prompting the hooligan to parachute into the abandoned Peppermint Mine. After a chase through the roller-coaster like mine, Toy Taker makes a run for it, but is lassoed by Yukon Cornelius (armed with dental floss borrowed from Hermey). His identity is revealed to Santa and his captors, and he tells his story.

Mr. Cuddles reforms when he hears that his banishment to the garbage heap was an accident. Steven had placed him in the box on the shelf in his closet to save his beloved childhood friend as a family heirloom, and was now trying to find him. Mr. Cuddles is repaired (his seams were coming undone at an increasing rate throughout the film) and given to Steven's young daughter that same Christmas.
