Last fall, Tom Hanks starred in a bizarre Halloween sketch on “Saturday Night Live” as ‘David S. Pumpkins’, a random, not-so-scary (BUT AWESOME) character on a haunted elevator ride.
It was so strange that it became a ‘thing’ online . . . and now, NBC is making an animated “David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special”, with Tom doing the voice. It’ll be a half-hour long, and it’ll premiere on October 28th.
According to the press release, David S. Pumpkins and his skeleton sidekicks will, quote, “show a young boy and his sister the true meaning of Halloween, answering NONE of their questions along the way.”
