Origin

Mrs. Donner, as her name suggests, is Donner's wife in the Rankin/Bass version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Donner being one of Santa Claus' Reindeer) and, as such, is mother to the reindeer who would become Santa's 9th(see notes).

Mrs. Donner offered to help her husband go looking for their son after he ran away. Despite Donner telling her not to help him, she helped him look for the boy anyway, accompanied by a young doe, Clarice. All three of them were soon captured by the Abominable Snowmonster of the North, but the young son returned and rescued them.

Notes

  • The character of Rudolph is not in the public domain and, thus, cannot be used without permission. He was created in 1939 by Robert L.May and his first appearance was renewed. However, he has been popularly referred to as "Santa's 9th Reindeer."
  • Like the character, the song, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, is NOT in the public domain so avoid using details which are original to it.
  • The copyright year in Roman numerals for the special was mis-marked as MCLXIV (1164) instead of the correct MCMLXIV (1964). This invalidates the copyright under U.S. law at the time, which required a valid date of copyright be affixed to the production meaning that still images from the special and all of the characters unique to it are, as a result, in the public domain.
  • The name given in this article is a conjecture based on the character's appearance.
