Pumpkins don't belong in bins!

Gourdon and Melonie are activist pumpkins on a mission.

Disturbed that so many of their fellow pumpkins end up in bins every Halloween, they are on a mission to change hearts and minds and improve human/vegetable relations for all time.

Armed with a hand-drawn powerpoint, a ukulele and a really terrible poem, they will not rest until you take the pumpkin pledge and vow never again to throw a pumpkin in the bin. 

Free pumpkin recipe with every show!

Ridiculous comedy for all the family, The Pumpkins is a 20 minute sketch that will make you rethink your relationship with squashes.
