Show Summary

The David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Special

“The David S. Pumpkins Animated 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 Animated Halloween Special” features 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.

Bento Box Entertainment will provide the animation. Mikey Day, Streeter Seidell & Bobby Moynihan will write and produce. Lorne Michaels will executive produce.

“The David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Special” is a production of Broadway Video in association with SNL Studios.
