Prancer is one of the youngest of all the reindeer and is in charge of all the fun reindeer games and activities. One of his most favorite games to play is hide and seek. Legend has it that Prancer is so good at playing hide and seek that Blitzen and Donner refuse to even play anymore. They once looked for him for an entire month until they got so far from the North Pole that hunters started to think they were regular deer and tried to shoot at them. After that, they want no part of hide and seek with Prancer. Prancer is also in charge of Saturday movie night where he makes huge bowls of popcorn for his reindeer friends and always has tons of chocolates and cookies waiting for them.
Prancer the Movie Star
What is Prancer’s favorite movie of all time? Well it’s the movie “Prancer” of course. Prancer is the only one of Santa’s reindeer to actually star in a real Hollywood movie. The movie Prancer came out in 1989 and was about an impoverished farm girl named Jessica who happened to come across Prancer one day when he was injured with a broken leg. Jessica then hid Prancer in her barn and helped nurse him back to health. However, she knew that she could not keep him and tried to find a way to return him to Santa. But before she could, her father found Prancer in the barn and tried to sell him to the butcher as an advertising display. But before he could, thanks to Jessica’s help Prancer broke away, and flew home to the North Pole.
Prancer also takes great pride in his antlers, which are larger than any other reindeer in the North Pole. Prancer’s favorite elf Silk, a ferret elf, helps to keep his antlers clean by climbing up on them and licking off the dirt. Remember he’s a ferret elf mind you. Prancer’s favorite food are carrots and homemade peanut butter. Prancer also has some of the most powerful hind legs that you’ll ever see and his name literally means “to spring from the hind legs.”
Prancer’s Twin Brother
Prancer is also twin brothers with Dancer, although they do not look exactly alike. Because of Prancer’s skillful powerful hooves and hind legs he is very skillful at difficult rooftop maneuvers. Prancer is also a very powerful flyer, but is less disciplined than his twin brother Dancer. One day in the future, when Prancer grows too old to pull Santa’s sleigh, he would like to retire and move to Hollywood to continue his acting career.
