Last October, Tom Hanks starred in a Saturday Night Live skit called "Haunted Elevator" as a character named David S. Pumpkins. It was exceedingly silly, made no sense at all, and starred Tom Hanks, so of course it became an instant meme, and one of the more popular Halloween costumes last year, despite airing only a week before Halloween. This year, David S. Pumpkins returns with his own Halloween special. The half-hour show will be animated, and will feature the voice of Tom Hanks and special guest Peter Dinklage. It will be a parody of other Halloween specials.
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.
In case you need a reminder, here's the original sketch.
The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special will air on October 28. Any questions?
