    SNL Brought Back David S. Pumpkins, In Animated Form, To Answer None Of Your Questions

    The skeletons are definitely still part of it, though.

    You guys remember Saturday Night Live's David S. Pumpkins, right?

    NBC

    Well, he returned in animated form Saturday for Halloween, in a story that was supposed to answer our questions about who exactly this enigma wrapped in a pumpkin suit actually is.

    NBC

    Because, yes, we do still have questions.

    NBC

    The story, written by the same team that put together the original sketch, all centers around this young boy named Kevin and his younger sister Dotty, and how they came to meet...

    NBC

    ...you guessed it: DAVID S. PUMPKINS

    NBC

    Who is voiced by Tom Hanks, and now drives a strawberry car for some reason.

    NBC

    Anyway, Pumpkins is supposedly going to teach Kevin about the spirit of Halloween.

    NBC

    And then save him from this scary dude in a raincoat because apparently David S. Pumpkins does that, or something.

    NBC

    The scary raincoat guy is apparently just these three jerks in costume stealing kids candy.

    NBC

    But David S. Pumpkins uses floating jack-o-lanterns to give the candy back to all the kids in town.

    NBC

    And prompts Kevin to finally talk to his crush.

    NBC

    And no, this still doesn't make any sense.

    NBC

    Because of course, Pumpkins answers none of our questions.
