The Google homepage doodles are known for their whimsical celebration of holidays, but past creations can't hold a candle to the jack-o'-lantern heavyweights featured in today's Halloween Google Doodle.

Six giant pumpkins, the biggest weighing in at 1,298 pounds, were brought to the Google campus ready for a team of doodlers to start their G-O-O-G-L-E carvings. With the seeds emptied out of each pumpkin, people were easily able to fit their heads within the cavernous walls. In fact, some of the pumpkins' exteriors measured six inches deep, requiring a saw to carve through the thickest parts. See how these great pumpkins were carved in the full behind-the-scenes video:
