Tom Hanks’ David S. Pumpkins Will Return in an Animated Halloween Special

Tom Hanks’ David S. Pumpkins Will Return in an Animated Halloween Special

Last year, Saturday Night Live introduced Tom Hanks as David S. Pumpkins, and he was quickly embraced by fans as an iconic character. We loved David S. Pumpkins so much that we actually predicted a Halloween special in his future. Today, that prophetic vision has come true, and we won’t have to wait long to see it!

Via Deadline, NBC has announced The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special is coming on Saturday, October 28 at 11:30 pm. It’s going to be an animated story, with Hanks reprising his role on camera for a live-action introduction, in addition to providing his voice. Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan are also reprising their roles as Pumpkins’ skeleton dancers, and they also co-wrote the special with Streeter Seidell.

Here’s what we know about a story: it’s set in a small town on Halloween, as David S. Pumpkins and his skeleton dancers “show a young boy and his sister the true meaning of Halloween, answering none of their questions along the way.”

And how could this special get any better? By adding Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, of course! Dinklage’s character hasn’t been revealed yet, but we’re looking forward to seeing and hearing him in action. Could his role possibly be more over-the-top than David S. Pumpkins himself? We’re eager to find out! If we’re lucky, this could be a new holiday tradition!
