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

Published

“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?
