Missing Cartoon Causing A Stir

There's a massive investigation underway as law enforcement officers across the country are intensifying their search for a missing cartoon. Spongbob Squarepants has been kidnapped!

If you've seen the missing sponge, Burger King managers and police departments across the country want to know.

At Burger Kings in at least 10 states, including Texas, giant balloons on display to promote Spongebob's new movie have been stolen. In all, about 100 giant Spongebobs, worth about a thousand dollars each, have been nabbed.

Some officials say the investigation into the missing Spongebob's is taking away from other things that need to be investigated.

The thieves have left ransom notes, two of those were signed by Spongebob's enemy, Plankton.

Burger King isn't taking the crime spree lightly. They're setting up a nationwide tipline for people to call with leads. Those who provide solid leads will be rewarded with a year's supply of free hamburgers.
