This Saturday, Saturday Night Live will air an animated half-hour animated special starring David S. Pumpkins on NBC. The character, portrayed by host Tom Hanks on the October 22, 2016, episode of SNL, is the subject of an oral history published by Vulture, where it's revealed that Lady Gaga--the musical guest that night--almost starred as Mrs. David S. Pumpkins in the hit skit. Alas, after rehearsing the role, she decided to devote all her energy to her musical performance that evening. One other fun tidbit: The nameless skeletons, played by co-writers Bobby Moynihan and Mikey Day, were originally called Oprah and Tommy Lee Bones.
