Twitter users had a field day reviewing Saturday Night Live's polarizing David S. Pumpkins animated special, which aired on Saturday night.
The cartoon, which told the story of the year that Pumpkins saved Halloween, elicited reviews such as, "As someone who liked the David S. Pumpkins sketch last year, I gotta say that this animated deal is pretty dumb. And not in a good way."
A more positive reviewer noted, “I can’t wait to, one day, show my kids the David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special the way other parents show their kids Frosty or Rudolph.”
The original David S. Pumpkins sketch was called “Haunted Elevator" and starred Tom Hanks as Pumpkins. It aired weeks before the 2016 presidential election and became a viral hit.
Are we supposed to leave anything out for David S. Pumpkins when he visits on Halloween? Pie? Tootsie Rolls?— Zane Stafford (@zanestafford) October 23, 2017
