On The Goldbergs episode “Mister Knifey-Hands”, despite Beverly’s (Wendi McLendon-Covey) wishes, Jackie’s (Alexis G. Zall) parents allow Adam (Sean Giambrone) to watch the scary horror film Nightmare on Elm Street (see link below). A disagreement between the families ensues. But then Beverly dreams of facing off with the horror icon Freddy Krueger, and it’s awesome.
On The Goldbergs, Freddy Krueger is portrayed by the legendary Robert Englund. You can see him next in the 2019 horror film Abruptio with comedian-turned-director Jordan Peele, who won an Oscar for his 2017 horror film Get Out. The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8 pm on ABC, right before American Housewife. [Related: Who Is New Jackie on ‘The Goldbergs’? What Happened To Old Jackie?]
