Clarice is the tritagonist of the 1964 film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and it's 2001 sequel Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys. she is the daughter of an unnamed male reindeer, the love interest, and later girlfriend of Rudolph.


She first appears at the Reindeer Games along serval other young does watch the bucks practice flying where she takes a liking to Rudolph and they agree to walk home together later before telling Rudolph that she thinks he is cute which causes him to leap into the air with joy. After Rudolph's fake nose falls off revealing his real red one, Clarice is the only one who doesn't mind this and she sings There's Always Tomorrow to him before her father arrives and orders her to come home (as he doesn't want her to be seen with a red-nosed reindeer) which she reluctantly does. She goes against her father's order and leaves to find Rudolph with his mother Mrs. Donner.

Months later, Clarice along with Mrs. Donner and Rudolph's father Donner are captured by the Abominable Snow Monster but then Rudolph arrives and battles the creature only to be knocked out. Luckily Rudolph's friends Hermey and Yukon Cornelius arrive and defeat the creature. The group then return home where Clarice reunites with her father and the next day on Christmas Eve along with Donner and Mrs. Donner watches Rudolph help Santa and the reindeer get through the storm with his nose's light.

She is voiced by Janet Orenstein in the first film and Elizabeth Carol Savenkoff in the second.



  • A character similar to Clarice called Zoey appears in the 1998 film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie as both are nice to Rudolph, both don't bully Rudolph, both are his love interests and became his girlfriend.
