Forgetful Rudolph by Daytona Magic(c. 2005) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is a long way from the classic Forgetful Freddie routine created by Milbourne Christopher c. 1951, featured in Hugard’s Magic Monthly (June 1951 page 801). Freddie was was first marketed by Bev Taylor’s Town House Magic. It is Daytona Magic’s Forgetful Rudolph and as a seasonal effect it works very well!
Effect: A model of an absentminded Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is shown to the spectators and the magi talks about how Rudolph is very forgetful. He forgets where he put his Christmas list and how to get things ready for his famous Christmas Eve ride. He is so forgetful that he once forgot where he left his nose. As the magi says this he takes the nose from the body and vanishes it in A Christmas decorated devil’s napkin that is provided with the effect. He then takes a red balloon, blows it up and places it where the nose was on the body.
Rudolph is very unhappy as the other reindeer call him names and make fun of him because of his balloon nose. Magi tells how Santa has a conversation with Forgetful Rudolph where he tells him how unhappy he is to have him “lost his nose”. Santa gets a promise from Rudolph that he will bring all the good little girls and boys something extra and try not forget things anymore and he restores his nose with a few magic words. The balloon “magically” pops and Rudolph’s nose is restored. This is a brilliant trick for children and grownups of all ages.
The effect is beautifully made and is about 15″ high and 16″ wide. It is uses wing nuts and bolts to be easily taken apart and folded flat. It is silk screened in 5 colors. The Christmas devils napkin can be used for other effects.
Approx. Price: $179.00 (2006) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
