Nickelodeon and SNL Studios Partner For All-New David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Movie


The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Spooktacular Is Slated to Premiere on Nickelodeon and Paramount+ in October 2023

Burbank, Calif. - Nickelodeon Animation and SNL Studios have announced a partnership to produce an original animated Halloween movie based on the beloved Saturday Night Live sketch David S Pumpkins. The animated comedy will bow on Nickelodeon and Paramount+ in October 2023.

The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Spooktacular will follow David Simon Pumpkins and his dancing skeleton crew to create the most spooktacular Halloween experience ever.

First introduced on Saturday Night Live in 2016, David Simon Pumpkins, portrayed by iconic actor Tom Hanks on SNL, is the star attraction at a variety of haunted attractions, including the 100 Floors of Frights and Haunted Prison. Originally from Ibiza, Pumpkins just wants to scare Halloween lovers stupid whilst doing his own thing. He is accompanied by his two faithful skeletons who just love to dance whilst being "part of Pumpkins' schemes".

The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Spooktacular will be written by Bobby Moynihan, Mikey Day, and Streeter Seidell, who created the character for Saturday Night Live. Kenan Thompson (Good Burger 2) will also have a guest starring role.

“Nickelodeon is diving even deeper into the lore of David Simon Pumpkins,” said Ramsey Naito, President of Animation for Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation. “This new movie allows us to expand the story of the iconic character whilst introducing him to new audiences. Any questions?!"

Further details about The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Spooktacular, including casting, will be announced in the coming months.

The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Spooktacular joins Nickelodeon's upcoming slate for Paramount+, which includes Good Burger 2, Zoey 102, and Monster High: The Movie 2.
