Tom Hanks as David S. Pumpkins on SNL

Tom Hanks originated the role of 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. Pumpkins, a man in a pumpkin-patterned suit, continues to appear and dance with two skeletons (Day and Moynihan).

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

This isn’t the character’s first Halloween Horror Nights appearance, though. He previously cameoed in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.”
