111) In Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, what was arctic prospector Yukon Cornelius searching for?


Throughout the special, Yukon is shown tossing his pick axe into the air, sniffing, and then licking the end that contacts the snow or ice, most of the time saying afterwards in disappointment, "Nothing." This leads the audience to believe that he is searching for either silver or gold by taste alone, though it turns out that he is actually seeking peppermint, as revealed at the end of the original version of the special.

The Grinch is depicted as a furry green recluse living in seclusion on a cliff overlooking the cheerful and optimistic town of Whoville.
