“Saturday Night Live” may have had its fill of Halloween-related sketches in Saturday’s (Oct. 26) Edward Norton-hosted episode, so this filmed bit didn’t make the final cut for the episode. But it’s both funny and carries an important message.

Watch the video above, and be on the lookout for the Pumpkin Avenger wherever jack-o-lanterns are imperiled.
