Trolls Holiday is a 2017 animated special based on the movie Trolls and takes place some time after the events of the film.

After removing Trollstice off their calendar, the Bergens realize that they don't have any other holidays that can be celebrated, so Bridget enlists the help of the Trolls to help them find one.

This special contains examples of:

  • Absentee Actor: DJ Suki and King Peppy do not appear in the special nor being mentioned at all.
  • Bubble Pipe: Mr. Dinkles is revealed to have one when revealed as the narrator, complete with smoking jacket. Biggie wants to know who gave him one.
  • Butt-Monkey: Gristle suffers a lot of abuse from the presentation.
  • Disney Acid Sequence: The Trolls and Cloud Guy experience one when the Caterbus goes through the wormhole. Eventually the Trolls turn into actual toy Trolls.

  • Eye Scream: Poor Gristle gets glitter, foam and laser burns on his eyes from the Trolls' presentation.
  • Fictional Holiday: The Trolls seem to have one for every day of the year. At least.
  • Medium-Shift Gag: As the bus goes through a worm hole, the Trolls briefly transform into the original Troll dolls.
  • Narrator All Along: Mr. Dinkles.
  • Pixellation: On Biggie's crotch when he rips up his pants for Tear-Away Pants Day.
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: One of the holidays brought up to the Bergens is Bleepy Sound Day, a holiday in which everyone talks in beeps.
  • Un-Paused: After exiting the wormhole, the Trolls take in their surroundings, then immediately resume signing "Love Train" like nothing happened. Only Branch appears to be weirded out, but he doesn't let that stop him from signing.
  • The Unsmile: Branch is still getting the hang of smiling. He finally gets it right in the end.

  • Who Is Driving?: Branch asks it when Cloud Guy is dancing with the Trolls on the bus when he's supposed to be driving it. It immediately drops off a cliff and is eaten by a worm, who then poops them out in Bergentown.
  • You Mean "Xmas": Although it isn't said in the special, Trollstice seemed to be celebrated around the time of Thanksgiving, and the special also takes place during Christmas.

How well does it match the trope?
