In this yuletide prequel to “The Bad Guys” movie, the familiar cast of characters, including Mr. Wolf, Snake, Mr. Shark, Ms. Tarantula, and Mr. Piranha, embarks on a Christmas-themed caper with a brand-new voice cast. Authored by Aaron Blabey and directed by Bret Haaland, the film takes a hilarious plunge into the chaos that ensues when the city’s beloved Santa balloon faces destruction, throwing the gang’s bank heist plans into disarray.

The Unraveling Plot

As the curtain falls on “The Bad Guys: A Very Bad Holiday,” the gang surprisingly finds themselves on Santa’s Nice List, despite their dastardly deeds and the inadvertent cancellation of Christmas. Serving as a prelude to “The Bad Guys” movie, this holiday spectacle revisits the gang’s mischievous ways and sets the stage for their grand heist on the North Pole the following Christmas.

A Glimpse into the Naughty Past

Questions arise about the gang’s motivations as they plan a Christmas bank heist, especially after their apparent redemption in “The Bad Guys” movie. However, a clever fourth-wall-breaking explanation by Mr. Wolf clarifies that “A Very Bad Holiday” is a snapshot of the time when the bad guys were still unapologetically bad, adding a touch of mischief to the holiday season.

The Importance of a Giant Santa

The calamity begins when The Bad Guys unintentionally demolish the city’s iconic “Big Nick” Santa balloon. Despite being just a single inflatable figure, its significance to the city’s holiday tradition is colossal. Described by Mr. Piranha as a “famous balloon everyone is freakishly emotionally attached to,” the destruction triggers an unprecedented cancellation of Christmas, leaving the gang with a narrow window to salvage the holiday and execute their heist.

A Change of Heart for the Holidays

Contrary to typical Christmas movie villains, The Bad Guys cherish the holiday season, viewing it as an opportune time for their heists. With Christmas temporarily canceled, they embark on a mission to restore the holiday spirit, stealing presents, hijacking radio airwaves with Christmas music, and even conjuring up snow. Their efforts, though criminal, reflect a desire to reinstate the festive cheer.

From the Naughty List to Santa’s Nice List

Despite their questionable activities on Christmas Eve, The Bad Guys find themselves on Santa’s Nice List after unintentionally restoring the holiday spirit. The gang’s unexpected inclusion on this list baffles them, leading Mr. Wolf to concoct a plan for a North Pole heist the following Christmas, determined to secure a spot on Santa’s Naughty List.
