It looks like Spongebob SquarePants will be home for the holidays. Dozens of the inflatable cartoon characters have been stolen from Burger King restaurants around the country. They were on display as part of a cross promotion with an animated movie. Now, some are being returned to their rightful owners -- or otherwise showing up in public places. In one of the most recent cases, the yellow Nickelodeon TV character was spotted strapped to a railing near the 50-yard-line in the football stadium at Iowa's Wartburg College. And in Virginia, one balloon was returned by someone that police say took it as a prank.
