For the gourd, see Pumpkins

The Pumpkin Anything Muppet is an orange rod puppet with a long, oval-shaped head, used on Sesame Street. Though sometimes referred to as "Tall Orange" in fan communities, the official name, according to a 1979 character style guide, is Pumpkin.

There is also a pumpkin live hand puppet first used in Season 35. There's also a pumpkin-orange puppet with a rounded head and live-hand, similar to the large lavender live hand puppet, but visually distinct from the typical Pumpkin Anything.

Examples of the Sesame Street characters developed from the Pumpkin Anything Muppet include the following:

Pumpkin Live Hand

A live hand variant also exists, but has been used less frequently.

Description

A Pumpkin is a large, orange, spherical squash. In the USA, pumpkins are traditionally associated with Halloween and Thanksgiving and made into pumpkin pie. In other parts of the world, such as Australia, they are eaten year-round, usually as a savoury dish. It is similar in taste to sweet potato.

There are many different varieties of pumpkin, and they have slightly different flavours, but the major differences are in the skin colour and the thickness of their rind. Some varieties have a very thin rind which is easy to cut and actually becomes edible when you cook the pumpkin, but as a whole the rind is discarded. Most varieties of pumpkin are at least technically edible. As a rule of thumb, the larger the pumpkin, the tougher the skin and the woodier and more tasteless the flesh. The large orange pumpkins sold for carving in the United States at Halloween are still edible, but they are not as good as pumpkins specifically grown for eating. This is less important if you are making pie, but is something to keep in mind when cooking pumpkins to eat directly.

Preparing a Halloween Pumpkin for Eating

When preparing pumpkin to eat, ensure that you've thoroughly washed the outside with warm water and soap or detergent. This is especially important for carving pumpkins bought in a 'pumpkin patch', since they may not have been washed before. If you are carving it for Halloween before eating, wash it before you cut into it and rinse it again after displaying. This will cut down the amount of bacteria and fertilizer on the peel. Also make sure to cut off any pieces with wax or soot from candles on it. If your pumpkin has dirt on it, it may be worth it to rinse it off outside with a garden hose before washing it in your sink, to avoid making your sink dirty.

If you have a carved pumpkin which you are intending to eat, it would be best to avoid leaving it out for more than 2 days. If possible, carve it on Halloween and bring it in that night. Leave it in a cool, dark place until you cook it. At worst, you would end up with a moldy, rotten pumpkin. If you are lucky, then your pumpkin may just dry out a bit, and you end up with some pieces which are chewy. Either way, best to take down your pumpkin early.

Cooking Pumpkin

An interesting fact is that most canned 'pumpkin' is actually hubbard squash. Hubbard squash has the characteristic rich orange flesh and bold flavor that users of canned pumpkin will be familiar with. If you are trying to make homemade pumpkin pie, you may have found that the taste of 'sweet pumpkins' is not as rich as what is normally found in canned pumpkin. For better results try using hubbard squash.

Pumpkin by itself is excellent. To cook pumpkin, slice into chunks no larger than 3"x3", and all chunks must be about the same size. Leave the peel on. Steam in the microwave or on the stove until all pieces are soft and mushy. Then, you can serve directly at the dinner table with butter, reminding diners to remove the peel, as it is inedible. Alternatively, you could let it cool, peel in the kitchen, mash it up with butter to taste, then heat and serve.

If you have a small pumpkin, you can roast it whole - just slice the top off first so that the steam can escape, and roast for about an hour. When it is done you can scoop out the seeds and discard, and if you remove some or most of the flesh you can use it as an unusal serving bowl to hold other food.

For a 'poor man's pumpkin pie', after peeling and mashing, instead of butter, mix with sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon to taste. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature.

For diners on controlled diets, the sugar and butter can be omitted, and still have a tasty side dish or dessert. Without the butter, pumpkin is a very low-fat food, and is also very high in certain vitamins.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

For the disguise penguins wear during Hallowe'en Events, see Pumpkin Penguin

Pumpkins were the first holiday items that were dropped by Jagex on Hallowe'en of 31 October, 2001 during the 2001 Hallowe'en Event. They heal a total of 14 hitpoints.

It is strongly recommended that a player notes the item as it may be accidentally consumed, especially since they are rare and extremely valuable.

Despite being released earlier than the Santa Hat, there is generally a lower demand for pumpkins. This is probably due to them being non-equippable, so players are unable to show off their wealth as easily. Ever since the PvP updates, and inflation of the economy this has changed. Pumpkins are now higher in value than Santa Hats.

Pumpkins generally rise in price around the time of Hallowe'en, much like Halloween masks do. Pumpkins are often used when buying items such as Partyhats, as they are considered by many high level players to be "Rare Junk".

The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A pumpkin was an orange, roundish fruit that grew on the forest moon of Endor. The Ewoks harvested pumpkins and would carve faces in them for Hallowe'en.
