Tom Hanks’ character David S. Pumpkins to return in Halloween themed special

Hanks

Following the iconic sketch on Saturday Night Live that went viral last year, Tom Hanks’ character David S. Pumpkins is set to return with a Halloween-themed animated half-hour special on NBC.

Hanks will reprise his role as a voice and will also appear on camera at the beginning of the half-hour.

Joining him will be Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan, sketch co-creator Streeter Seidell and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.

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.

The special will air on October 28th at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
