Inspired by the popular SNL skit called “Haunted Elevator“, NBC has commissioned Bento Box Entertainment to produce a 30-minute animated special called The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special set to premiere  Saturday, October 28 at 11:30 PM ET/PT.

The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special will be written and produced by Bobby Moynihan and Streeter Seidell with Moynihan, Tom Hanks, and Mikey Day reprising their roles from the popular sketch. Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) will also be part of the special.

Our Take

I’d love to see NBC jump into the late-night animation game. They tease every now and again, but if this thing becomes a hit, perhaps the network can produce some MORE SNL-inspired animation just like the good ol’ days that featured the TV Funhouse shorts.
