"The 12 Days of Nickmas" is a SpongeBob SquarePants Merry Nickmas short. In this short, SpongeBob and other Nicktoons sing a parody of The Twelve Days of Christmas.



An entire group of Nicktoon characters, all rendered in claymation a.k.a. Rankin/Bass style, sing to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

The 12 Gifts of Nickmas

  • 12 bubbles blowing! (sung by SpongeBob)
  • 11 clones attacking!! (sung by Jimmy Neutron)
  • 10 thousand places I'd rather be right now (sung by Debbie Thornberry)
  • 9 reindeer droppings! (sung by Carl Foutley and Hoodsey Bishop)
  • 8 oddball wishes! (sung by Cosmo and Wanda)
  • Watch out, Vicky! (spoken by someone off-screen)
  • 7... thousand... pounds (sung by Vicky)
  • 6 jamming jellys! (sung by Squidward)
  • 5 Incredibly expensive golden rings! (sung by Courtney Gripling)
  • 4 dudes a shreddin! (sung by Otto Rocket)
  • 3 cans of hairspray! (sung by Arnold, Gerald, and Helga)
  • 2 turtles love... (sung by Cosmo)
  • Oh, Cosmo! (spoken by Wanda)
  • And a starfish on a pine tree! (sung by all)
  • Pointy (spoken by Patrick Star)



  • The elf who looks like Patrick on top of the pine tree at the end of the short is a reference to "Christmas Who?" when Patrick jumps up on top of the coral tree during the song "The Very First Christmas."
  • Besides Butch Hartman's portrait, the "eight oddball wishes" that Cosmo and Wanda produce include a toilet, an old-time bicycle, a donkey carrying a suitcase, a giant set of false teeth, a big toy submarine that looks like the one Wanda transforms into during the song in "Christmas Every Day!," a bowl of cereal, and a plastic whale that resembles Big Ben.
  • The "six jamming jellies" line during the music that plays when Winter Squidlock sings is a background music piece titled "Stadium Rave," originally used in the episode "Jellyfish Jam."

Cultural references

  • The title shares the name of the Christmas carol.
  • When Vicky stops singing her part of the song, her legs twirl up. This is a reference to when the Wicked Witch of the East dies in The Wizard of Oz.
  • The elf that looks like Jimmy being chased by the elf that looks like Carl's clones is a reference to the Jimmy Neutron interstitial short "Carl Squared."
