''It's a [=SpongeBob=] Christmas!'' is the second ChristmasEpisode from Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''. It was released DirectToVideo on October 30, 2012, and made its television premiere on Creator/{{CBS}} on November 23rd, before its Nickelodeon debut on December 6th, where, in a rare achievement for cable television, it ''outrated'' the CBS airing. Unlike its predecessor, "WesternAnimation/ChristmasWho?", this one was animated in stop-motion animation in the spirit of many of the Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}} holiday specials.

* MagicMusic: The song Sandy makes turns out to be the antidote for Jerktonium; as [=SpongeBob=] sings it, anyone around him turns back to normal.



* MeaningfulEcho: "Hot from the oven, full of lovin'!" Said first by Plankton when he gives Spongebob the fruitcake filled with jerktonium, and said next by Spongebob when he destroys the killer robot with fruitcake.

* BadSanta: While Santa isn't bad, he does steal Mr. Krab's Krabby Patty Secret Formula and gives it to Plankton, because he thought Plankton was the only Bikini Bottomite who wasn't being a total jerk. He lampshades it when asked how he got it by smiling coyly and saying "I have my ways." It turns out his elves stole the formula and they also tried to make off with Mr Krab's wallet.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Plankton's "Mechanical Agent of Naughtiness" or Toybob is what ultimately foils Plankton's plan to get SantaClaus to steal The Krabby Patty Secret Formula for him. Toybob shows up right at Plankton's moment of victory to destroy Santa Claus, which ends up vindicating [=SpongeBob=] whom everyone thought was on a rampage of destruction. [=SpongeBob=] ends up saving the day, by destroying his robotic doppelganger, rescuing Santa Claus, and saving Christmas.

* VillainBall: When Plankton finds out that [=SpongeBob=] is immune to The Jerktonium, instead of being content that pretty much everyone in Bikini Bottom has become a jerk, he decides to send out a robotic version of [=SpongeBob=] on a rampage of destruction to ruin the real [=SpongeBob=]'s good name. This comes back to bite him in the butt, when after Santa Claus gives him The Krabby Patty Formula, Toybob shows up to try and kill Santa. After [=SpongeBob=] defeats his evil robotic counterpart, Santa's elves find Toybob's windup key which says "If found please return to The Chum Bucket" This is what seals Plankton's doom.
