It’s Tom Hanks in NBC’s “The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special”

“Saturday Night Live” legend David S. Pumpkins is returning to NBC for a Halloween-themed animated half-hour special on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

“The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special” is based on the wildly successful “Haunted Elevator” sketch from the Oct. 22, 2016 “SNL” telecast that featured nine-time host Tom Hanks as mystery man David S. Pumpkins, on an elevator wearing a pumpkin suit and surrounded by two skeleton dancers – Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan.

“The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special” will feature the voice of Hanks, who will also appear on camera at the beginning of the half-hour, as well as two-time Emmy Award-winning “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage. Sketch creators Day, Moynihan and Streeter Seidell will have voiceover roles as well.

Set in a small suburban town on All Hallows’ Eve, the special centers on David Pumpkins and his skeleton sidekicks who show a young boy and his sister the true meaning of Halloween, answering none of their questions along the way.

Here’s some art. Any questions?

    I’m looking more forward to this than Stranger Things.

    Ugh. I don’t get the love for Pumpkins. Their recent sketch with Kellyanne Conway as Pennywise was FAR better.

    I like Tom Hanks. I love funny things, and I absolutely adore Halloween. Sigh, I just wish I liked David S. Pumpkins. But like the couple in the skit, I just don’t get it.
