4. A little nip-and-tuck

Like many screen stars, Santa Claus and little Rudolph have had some cosmetic work done. The two original puppets were in miserable shape when discovered in someone’s attic in 2005. Santa’s fluffy eyebrows and half his mustache were missing, as was Rudolph’s famous nose. After being appraised on “Antiques Roadshow” (estimated value: $8,000 to $10,000), they were bought by a fan and restored to mint condition by a Los Angeles animation studio.
