Universal Orlando Resort hasn’t announced many details about Peacock’s Halloween Horror Bar, just that it will “feature themed libations within an ominous nightclub vibe, photo opportunities, and more.”

Tom Hanks originated the role of David S. Pumpkins on the October 22, 2016 episode of SNL. The sketch — written by Mikey Day, Bobby Moynihan, and Streeter Seidell — has a couple riding a Tower of Terror-esque ride called 100 Floors of Frights. David S. Pumpkins, a man in a pumpkin-patterned suit, continues to appear and dance with two skeletons (Day and Moynihan).

David S. Pumpkins went viral. He starred in the animated 2017 “The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special” and returned to SNL for a 2022 sketch.

Reports suggest David S. Pumpkins would be in a variety show at Peacock’s Halloween Horror Bar. This wouldn’t be the character’s first Halloween Horror Nights appearance. He previously cameoed in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.”
