Every year there is many rumours surrounding Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, and in fact its half the fun of waiting for the event to start!

This year we have heard persistent rumours that the spookiest man in town, the Saturday night Live character David S Pumpkins would be appearing at this years Halloween Horror Nights 32.

Rumours pointed to David S Pumpkins show, but it now seems that a meet and greet will be happening at this years HHN 32.

The meet and greet is expected to be within the new Peacock Halloween Bar which is to be located behind Lombard’s Seafood Grille.

The character HAS already appeared at Halloween Horror Nights, having previously cameoed in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.

David S Pumpkins is the brainchild of SNL head writer Streeter Seidell, SNL alum Bobby Moynihan, and cast member Mikey Day, who created the character leading up to Tom Hanks' hosting the late-night sketch program on October 22, 2016, where Hanks portrayed the character.

The sketch Haunted Elevator, featuring David S. Pumpkins, took place on a Tower of Terror-esque ride where a decidedly unterrifying and not- well-known character played by Hanks would greet the riders

The final product involved Hanks in his pumpkin suit, flanked by two dancing skeletwins played by Day and Moynihan. David S. Pumpkins, his two-finger point, and his dance moves delighted viewers so much that Hanks' fictional character became an instant icon and an actual Halloween costume.

David S. Pumpkins made such a splash that the following year NBC released The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special, a 30-minute animated comedy special devoted to all things Pumpkins related, featuring Hanks, Day, Moynihan, Cecily Strong, and Peter Dinklage.
