You love Halloween. You also love PBS. So what better way to pledge your passion for both than by carving one of these PBS-themed pumpkins this All Hallow's Eve, courtesy of our state-of-the-art stencils?

All you'll need is a good-sized pumpkin, cutting instruments, a full cartridge of printer ink and -- let's face it -- a lot of time on your hands. Happy Halloween, PBS nerds!

(Looking for our NPR themed pumpkin stencils from last year? Step this way.)

#1. Mr. Rogers

#2. The Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey 


What is a weekend? That's right: That's the amount of time it'll take you to achieve this detailed rendering of the barb-tongued Lady Grantham! Alternatively, you could just ask one of the servants to do it.

#3. Bob Ross 


This uncanny likeness of PBS legend Bob Ross -- complete with "painting" -- will bring some artistry to your front porch this Halloween. Remember, carvers: We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents, so any slips of the knife should be regarded as such.
