Nickelodeon celebrates the holidays with its first full-length stop-motion animated special, IT'S A SPONGEBOB CHRISTMAS, premiering tonight, Dec. 6, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT). It's A SpongeBob Christmas! was inspired by the classic Rankin/Bass specials (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town) and the popular SpongeBob song released in 2009, "Don't Be a Jerk (It's Christmas)," co-written by Tom Kenny (voice of SpongeBob) and Andy Paley. The half-hour special features John Goodman as Santa Claus.

In It's A SpongeBob Christmas!, Plankton turns everybody in Bikini Bottom from nice to naughty by feeding them his special jerktonium-laced fruitcake all in an effort to get his Christmas wish - the Krabby Patty formula. The episode includes special bonus scenes featuring a stop-motion version of the character "Patchy," also voiced by Tom Kenny.
