Netflix's The Bad Guys: A Very Bad Holiday brings fresh new voices into its cast for a fun-filled prequel.

The Bad Guys: A Very Bad Holiday is set before the events of 2022's The Bad Guys, and it revolves around the original gang of animal criminals trying to save Christmas after accidentally causing a giant fire involving the Santa Claus balloon. 

Interestingly, none of the original voice cast returned to voice their characters. 

The half-hour Christmas special debuted on Netflix on November 30.

Mr. Wolf is a witty and charming wolf who leads "The Bad Guys" gang and maps out their entire operation. 

In the half-hour special, Mr. Wolf comes up with the idea to steal gifts from the department store and give them to everyone so that the residents stay home. As a result, the streets will be empty when they decide to rob the bank and the stinky cheese store. 

Godere is best known for his roles in Loitering with Intent and Daylight. The actor also appeared as Caleb Lockhart in The Affair.

In The Bad Guys: A Very Bad Holiday, Mr. Shark uses several disguises to help the team achieve their plan, such as dressing up as iconic Christmas villains.

While hesitant to follow Wolf's plan, Mr. Snake eventually agrees to help the gang. His pivotal role includes safe-cracking the door of the shaved ice stall to create snow that would trigger the holiday vibes of the city.
