When, in the thoroughly enjoyable (though somewhat exhausting) "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water,'' the tiny, scheming Plankton takes a surreptitious trip into one of those sponge-holes, he finds a brain coated with cotton candy, rainbows and all manner of sweets, like a scene from "The Nutcracker.'' It's enough to make a cynical little organism sick, but it makes us love sweet SpongeBob even more.
