In Chaos and Eggnog, Timmy finds some gems in his basement and gives them to Jimmy, Danny and Spongebob as last-ditch Christmas presents. Unfortunately, it transpires that the gems are cursed, and Timmy is blamed. Eventually, the group end up going on a roadtrip to the source of the curse in order to break it.
The sequel, The Quest for the Orb of Power, which takes liberal inspiration from Indiana Jones, sees Dani crash into Danny's life again, badly destablised. Danny and Jimmy head into the Ghost Zone to find a cure, but end up trapped in a bizarre place that emulates the 1930s, along with Valerie and what appears to be Sam's clone, Sammie. Meanwhile, the other Nicktoons, Jazz, Sam and Tucker fight dragons.
In the third story, Stage Fright, Spongebob is chosen for the lead role in a play by a mysterious man, who gives him a cloak to help him with the role. Shortly after, people start to dissappear as Spongebob begins to feel the effects of the man's cloak. Meanwhile, Timmy is forced into the play to spy on the man.
The fourth story, A Day at the Lab, follows the Nicktoons as they spend a rainy day in Jimmy's lab, testing his potions. It's much shorter then the other stories, with a more light-hearted nature.
The fifth story, Darkness Rising, made up for that in spades, with the Nicktoons finally taking on the Man in the White Suit. Unfortunately for them, the Man has been ready for them for centuries...
The sixth story, Planktopolis Now, the Syndicate return as the main villains as they steal a time-altering device, which they use to erase Spongebob from history. This in turn replaces Bikini Bottom with the Orwellian Planktopolis.
The seventh story, It Came From Retroville, has Jimmy, Timmy, Dani, Carl, and Sheen get trapped in a spaceship designed by Calamitous alongside the Syndicate's newest member, Eustace Strych. As the rest of the Nicktoons try to rescue them, they soon discover they're not alone on the ship...
The eighth story, and Grand Finale of the series, Destiny, has the Vagueness Is Coming from "Darkness Rising" finally come to pass as The Warlord arrives from the Ghost Zone, conquering the planet in the process. The Nicktoons must do everything in their power to stop this dangerous foe. However, they may be unprepared for the sacrifices they must make in order to stop him...
