David S. Pumpkins Getting His Own NBC Special

David S. Pumpkins is going from an SNL sketch to an animated special.

Tom Hanks will lend his voice to the half-hour Halloween special, which will air October 28th at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.

This is the official synopsis from NBC: “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.”

Hanks debuted the bizarre, pumpkin-suit-wearing character when he hosted SNL last October.
