Trolls Holiday is an NBC animated special, based on DreamsWorks Animation's Trolls franchise, itself based on The Good Luck Trolls toyline. This special marks the end of the first storyline of the franchise, taking place after the 2016 film and the Netflix/DreamWorks show Trolls: The Beat Goes On!.
After Queen Poppy and the Trolls took away Trollstice from Bergen Town, the Bergens have no holidays to celebrate. After receiving cards from the Bergens (all of different days of the week or times of a day), Poppy comes up with an idea, to give the Bergens some of their holidays to celebrate the season. The queen enlists her friend Branch (who is new at this "happy" thing), and the Snack Pack, to travel to Bergen town by bus, driven by Cloud Guy (much to Branch's annoyance). After the trolls travel through a crazy wormhole, Poppy, Branch and the Snack Pack arrive in Bergen town, to give the Bergens some holidays to celebrate.
Poppy, Branch and the Snack Pack show Bridget and Gristle their holidays, but it ends badly. Bridget angrily snaps at Poppy to leave and give the Bergens some space. Heartbroken by Bridget's words and actions, Poppy leaves Bergen town for the forest, with her friends in pursuit. In the forest, Poppy worries to Branch that she might have lost Bridget as a friend forever. Branch tries to cheer up his friend by singing some songs. Meanwhile, back in Bergen Town, Bridget and King Gristle start to regret how hard they both were on the Trolls, and Bridget realises that Poppy does care about the Bergens.
Back in the forest, Poppy realises that she got so caught up trying to celebrate the holidays with the Bergens, that she was not even listening to Bridget (Branch's continuous singing was to make a point of what Poppy did wrong). When Poppy and Branch return to Bergen town, they find that the entire town is decorated with decorations made by the Bergens. Poppy and Bridget apologise for their actions, and Branch finally smiles, much to the delight of his girlfriend and Bridget. The Bergens and the Trolls all celebrate their new holiday together: Troll-A-Bration.
