“My glove! My big, beautiful, bone-crushing glove!”

"Handemonium" is the first segment of the fifteenth episode of season 12, and it is paired with "Breakin'." In this episode, Plankton brings his Chum Bucket glove to life to win an arm wrestling contest, but the glove soon rampages around the city.



Mr. Krabs is at an arm wrestling club, beating everyone who dares to challenge him. Plankton enters and wants to challenge him, but fails due to his size. He goes back to his restaurant, wondering if he'll ever get the upper hand, making him realize he can use the Chum Bucket glove to help him out. He brings it to life, and brings it to the club so he can beat Mr. Krabs with it.

After succeeding with this plan, he takes it to the Krusty Krab to help him steal the formula, but it turns on him and puts him in hot sauce, as it walks out of the restaurant. Plankton opens the emergency box, and out comes SpongeBob, who agrees to help him after saying he has a problem.

In the middle of town, the glove is wreaking havoc. Plankton tries to use a tank with missiles to defeat the glove, but SpongeBob is too scared to shoot the glove, but when Plankton pushes it, he accidentally aims the missiles upwards and causes them to hit himself. They then make a glove love interest to defeat him, but as they are doing a fake dinner, the glove ends up slurping the glove off, making that plan fail.

The next day, SpongeBob is crying at his house, until Plankton tells him to keep his pants on, giving him an idea to use Hans to defeat the glove. He gets the idea that the glove may be at Glove World, which turns out to be true.

Hans gets into a fight with the glove as it's causing havoc at Glove World, but after awhile of fighting, he realizes it's too strong and asks SpongeBob and Plankton to create a diversion. They come up with the plan to turn SpongeBob into a bullhorn and insult the glove. This works, and as the glove approaches them, Hans wears the glove. Later, Plankton has replaced his glove with a combat boot, which falls into the restaurant.
