Biggie & Mr. Dinkles are a pair of supporting characters in Trolls, having appeared throughout the franchise ever since. Biggie is a member of The Snack Pack.

Appearance

Biggie is a tall, fat-looking blue Troll. He has periwinkle hair that is quite short compared to other Trolls' hair, and a pink nose. He wears a purple waistcoat and shorts. His overall height makes him not only one of the largest of the Pop Trolls, but also one of the few Trolls comparable to the Funk Trolls, who are the tallest Trolls overall in Troll Kingdom.

Mr. Dinkles is a small greenish-yellow worm with pink stripes across his body, purple eyes, blue lips and a dark green top hat. While he's incapable of talking for the most part, he usually makes a squeaky "mew" sound (in Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, this becomes a "meep" sound). As a running gag in the 3D animation, Mr. Dinkles actually has a deep bass-like vocal; this is seen in the only two songs he sung so far (Low Rider in the Trolls Shorts episode "Trolla-Palooza Tour" and Rainbow, Unicorns, Everything Nice in Trolls World Tour).

Overall, both Biggie and Mr. Dinkles don't have much differences in their designs from Trolls: The Beat Goes On! in comparison to their ones in the 3D animation. The only notable changes are that Biggie often has visible buckteeth, and Mr. Dinkles has a blue bowtie.

Throughout the series, Biggie & Mr. Dinkles also appear with other outfits.

At one point in Lonesome Flats, Biggie appears with an orange waistcoat and shorts with white stripes, armbands made out of paper clips, a purple bracelet and golden finger rings on his left hand, and yellow heart-shaped glasses with red lenses. He also has a golden "B" marking on chest.

Later in the movie, he and The Snack Pack try to infiltrate the Rock Trolls by wearing "Rock" adornments, though they misunderstand how Rock clothing looks. Biggie's outfit consists of a white vest and shorts addorned with stars, red circles and yellow patches, and a brownish-red necklace; part of his hair is also styled down into sideburns. Mr. Dinkles has a black pompadour wig.

Personality

Biggie has a big heart, and is one of Poppy's dearest friends. He's generally shy, timid and easily frightened, being said in some sources to be a bit of a crybaby. The other Trolls, however, generally don't like seeing Biggie upset. Biggie is honest about things, relying on others at times, but has value in the simple promises people make to others. When upset, Biggie will say why; he demonstrates this by angrily telling to Poppy that she messed up when she breaks her "pinky promise" in Trolls World Tour. He also considers himself "cute", and is upset by the prospect in the Lonesome Flats jail that he's no longer cute.

Mr. Dinkles doesn't have much of a personality, but he's shown to be quite mischievous. Biggie often vocals what the worm is supposed to be thinking, although it can appear he is projecting his own thoughts and emotions at times onto the worm. in Trolls Biggie starts to vocalize that Mr. Dinkles was freaking out. However, Biggie was actually the one freaking out at the time.

Relationships

Each other

Mr. Dinkles is Biggie's best friend. Biggie cares and loves Mr. Dinkles so much, he also makes sure to keep him safe. Biggie carries Mr. Dinkles around everywhere. He would do anything to save him, and loves him with all of his heart. He's almost always shown to carry him; when he doesn't, he yells and searchs frantically for his pet worm.

Queen Poppy

Biggie and Poppy are very close friends. When Chef takes Biggie and Poppy's other friends, she's very worried about them, though stays hopeful that she will find them.

Biggie holds Poppy in high regard and has expectations of her. He expects her to keep her word as queen and is only disappointed in her when she fails. Yet no matter how scared he gets, he at least attempts to go and save her, even if it ends in failure and him helplessly only able to watch events unfold.

Ripley Wisp

According to Poppy in Friend Matching, Biggie and Ripley are compatible and should be friends. However, because Poppy told the pair they have chemistry between them, the meeting between them became awkward, and their friendship never took off.

Skills & Abilities

Biggie has most normal Troll abilities, but Mr. Dinkles is just a worm.

Biggie's physicality comes into account sometimes when it comes to weight and size matters, due to him being larger and heavier than most Trolls.

Photography

Biggie's hobby is photography. He commonly takes pictures of Mr. Dinkles and other critters.

Dress Up

As seen in the Trolls Holiday Shorts episode "Dress Up", Biggie likes to play dress up, usually on Mr. Dinkles. Biggie doesn't usually dress up himself, but in the "Dress Up" episode he dresses up as Branch while Mr. Dinkles wore a costume resembling Poppy; they re-acted the introduction of Branch from Trolls, but Biggie tweaked it to make it more obvious of Branch's feelings towards Poppy.

Music

Biggie is a tenor vocalist. As a Pop Troll, he's into Pop music.

Mr. Dinkles can sing, but he rarely does this. When he does, he has a deep baritone or bass vocal, as heard in Rainbow, Unicorns, Everything Nice. Mr. Dinkles has sung in two songs, though neither of them were Pop songs.

Leadership

When Biggie returns to Pop Village in Trolls World Tour after Queen Barb attacked, he takes the position of substitute leader over the remaining members of The Snack Pack, in absence of Poppy and Branch as they go to rescue Poppy.

History

Trolls

Biggie and Mr. Dinkles first appear during the Trolls introduction, seen with The Snack Pack as Branch sarcastically applauds them for being so loud, arguing that the Bergens will find them. The group mocks Branch, though Biggie isn't one of the members who joins in. Branch escapes when hug time occurs.

During the 20th anniversary of the freedom from Trollstice, Biggie is seen at the party Poppy throws to honor her father King Peppy. When Chef attacks, he panics because he can't find Mr. Dinkles, who just turns out to be stuck onto his back. This leads to the pair getting captured, along with the rest of the Snack Pack.

They're taken to Bergen Castle at Bergen Town by Chef and kept in a cage. The group witnesses Creek being eaten after Chef tries to force-feed the Bergen King King Gristle Jr.. Chef then hands the cage to Bridget to look after.

Poppy and Branch rescue the group, who end up being stored in Bridget's room. After Bridget tries to recapture them once Branch frees the group, the Trolls come to an agreement: they help Bridget get a date with Gristle and she helps them get Creek, as Poppy can't accept that Creek is gone.

The group invents an alter-ego for Bridget named "Lady Glittersparkles". They land her a date with Gristle. After finding out that Creek is indeed alive, they try to rescue him. Their attempt ends in confusion, as the group is re-captured, now including Branch and Poppy. Creek reveals he has sold out the entire Troll Village to save himself.

The entire Troll population is thrown into a pot. After seeing Poppy turn grey, Biggie and Mr. Dinkles both turn grey as well, as the entire village gives up hope. Branch starts to sing which restores hope to Poppy and in turn the rest of the village. Bridget frees the Trolls, willing to sacrifice herself by going to the Bergens with an empty pot.

Poppy, not wanting to see Bridget ruin her life, goes back with the group to save her. They recreate the wig of Lady Glittersparkles, and show Gristle where his love interest actually is. The feast of Trolls is cancelled, and the Trolls show the Bergens how they can be happy without eating them.

Trolls shorts

Biggie and Mr. Dinkles play dress up with each other, with Biggie as Branch and Dinkles as Poppy. However, Biggie has changed the script. When Poppy comes to visit them, she is shocked at their play and tells Dinkles to add more glitter before she leaves disturbed. Dinkles then speaks, shocking Biggie.

Trolls Holiday

Biggie is part of the team that jumps out and startles Branch in his bunker when Poppy gets him aboard with her plan. Smidge, Biggie and Fuzzbert weren't given specific roles during the presentation of the Troll holidays to King Gristle Jr. and Bridget.

Trolls World Tour

Biggie briefly goes on a mission with Poppy and Branch on uniting the other Tribes, but after witnessing the ruins of Symphonyville and being held captive by Delta Dawn, he stresses out, the latter case making him believe that Poppy had broken her "pinky promise" with him at Symphonyville. Getting abducted by Chaz as the last straw, he bails out and abandons Poppy and Branch.

After returning to Troll Village, nonetheless, Biggie realizes that the village has been destroyed and regrets for leaving Poppy and Branch behind. To make up for his mistake, he and the rest of his surviving friends disguise themselves as Rock Trolls to infiltrate into Volcano Rock City. When the Strings are destroyed, he and the other Trolls lose their colors, but later regain them as they join in the singing of the Tribes' reunification.

Character Concept

Biggie's concept did not vary much in development, and most of the changes shown in The Art of the Trolls just had to do with attire. He was shown to care a small critter, although the type of critter wasn't decided yet back then.

Mr. Dinkles' concept went through many changes, which included different colors, legs and neckties.

The designs that Biggie & Mr. Dinkles use when they infiltrate the Rock Trolls in Trolls World Tour are based on Elvis Presley. In Biggie's case, it specifically references the infamous outfit that Elvis wore for the Aloha from Hawaii Via Satellite concert; though it also has a resemblance to the outfit worn by the Trash Can Trolls card "Performin' Norman" (card no.16a), also known as "Bob Slob" (card no.16b). Note: The "Trash Can Trolls" were a series loosely based on Garbage Pail Kids. Be careful when looking up for these cards, as they contain gross-out humor, including puking and body mutilation.

Trolls

Biggie is the biggest member of the Snack Pack, with the biggest heart. Underneath his imposing exterior he’s actually a huge softie, constantly bursting into tears at touching moments, or even at the sight of a particularly picturesque sunset. He carries around a worm named Mr. Dinkles with him everywhere he goes, and occasionally dresses him up in adorable little outfits for impromptu photo shoots.

  • Biggie is unafraid to cry happy tears.
  • He's a big advocate of the short vest/no shirt look.
  • Biggie loves to dress up Mr. Dinkles in adorable little outfits for the photo shoots and/or flash mob dances.
  • His favorite snack is the cupcakes Mr. Dinkles makes after drinking happy tears.

Trolls World Tour

Worried that Queen Poppy is leading the Pop Trolls astray, cotton-candy-obsessed Biggie and his faithful (mostly wordless) companion, Mr. Dinkles, accidentally join the adventure when they get stuck on balloon Sheila B.

Trolls: Crazy Party Forest!

Biggie was an unlockable Troll in Trolls: Crazy Party Forest!. In the game, he was referred to as a "Giant" Troll whose favorite activities are Swimming and Dance.

Toys and Figurines

Similar to Smidge, Biggie often presents a issue related to his size, thus was one of three Trolls with issues related to merchandise, the third being Cooper due to his very different design. Since he's bigger than standard Trolls like Poppy and Branch, scaling models present a problem at times balancing out the value of his model. In later Trolls-era sets, Hasbro and other companies would avoid merchandise for him.

He has since re-appeared in the Trolls World Tour era toys. However, Hasbro still seems to have issues with him; for example, he has yet to make a new mould for him in their small figurines range. Instead, they simply recolored one of his older models. This is notable, as it's the only Trolls World Tour model with a Trolls-era logo on its leg. In terms of characters, this is so far the only example of Hasbro reusing an older mould sculpture for one of the returning characters.

Mr. Dinkles has had several merchandising where he is the sole focus.

Trivia

  • Their names are actually jokes referring to the male genitals. "Biggie" and "Dinkle" are slangs that can refer to the size of the male reproductive organ.
  • In Trolls Holiday, when Biggie pulls off his shorts during the description of "Tear Away Pants Day", his genitals are exposed, but censored by pixelization. Bridget and King Gristle Jr. get offended by Biggie exposing himself, even though there have been a number of naked Trolls through the Trolls franchise, such as Guy Diamond.
    • This makes Biggie the only character in the franchise to expose his genitals onscreen. Although, this might have been only a gag, as none of the naked Trolls appear to have visible genitalia.
  • According to The Poppy Horror Picture Show, Biggie's middle name is "Hugs".
  • Biggie's voice actor, James Corden, had to re-record many of the lines for the character in Trolls because the director Mike Mitchell kept laughing at what Biggie was doing in a scene.[1]
  • Biggie and Smidge have contrasting designs and somewhat visual jokes; Biggie is a large Troll with short hair and Smidge is a small Troll with long hair. Their designs are a play on the normal proportions of the Troll design, which stands 6 inches tall with their height being equal length in both body and hair at 3 inches.
  • The short "Dress Up" indicates that Biggie was aware of Branch's feelings towards Poppy long before Trolls World Tour, when Branch fully confesses how he feels about her. This is likely a joke, considering that Poppy herself was ignorant of this, even with Branch saying he loves her in True Colors.
  • Given his chubby appearance, Biggie was likely modelled after James Corden, his voice actor in 3D animation.
