Talk:Olive, The Other Reindeer

From This Might Be A Wiki

Is this song "Olive the Other Reindeer" or "Olive, the Other Reindeer"?

The image shows it with a comma, and IMDB lists it with a comma as well - imdb.com. --Duke33 07:28, 4 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Long Version?[edit]

is there really a long version of this song? -- Goodtimes2

I've wondered the same thing, but I really don't think that there is. The wiki lists this song's length as 2:04, and I have an MP3 of this song labeled as "Olive, the Other Reindeer (Long Version)" with a length of 2:05, but that's the exact same length as the MP3 we gave out in the dearly departed TMBW.net Free MP3s podcast. What does everyone else think? ~Drew

Flexi disk[edit]

So it only came out on flexi disk? :'( -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 20:07, 29 May 2010

yes. -- 20:29, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Pun?[edit]

I'm wondering: OK for me to add this to the "Puns etc" theme? This title could be based on a pun on the line in the original "Rudolph" song that goes "All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names," which could be (un)intentionally misheard as "Olive, the other reindeer..."

I won't do it unless I get a blessing from a fellow Wikian, or even better, an administrator. :-) --MisterMe 16:32, 2 April 2012 (EDT)

Absolutely! ~ magbatz 17:03, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
i agree! that pun is actually the basis of the book, so i would advise pointing out on the puns page that john linnell was not the original...pun...ist... -Apollo (colloquia!) 17:21, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
