YMMV: Freddy's Nightmares
  • Awesome Music: The intro.
  • Broken Base: Elm Street fans are still divided on whether the show was a cheap cash in on Freddy's popularity for the time, or if it was a genuinely good anthology series.
  • Ear Worm: Chew me, eat me, you can't beat me...
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Plenty of the episodes ended with odd aesops;
    • You flunked your SAT tests? No problem, you can always become a rockstar!
    • Your new stepfather is an asshole? Accidentally scare him to death and all will be well!
  • Narm: Cower in fear as you watch the show's opening, with its terrifying family photos and awkwardly screaming people!
  • Nightmare Fuel: The second episode, it turns out that the events of the episode are just a product of the main character's broken neurons misfiring as he's dying after taking a bullet to the brain.
  • Special Effect Failure: Show's budget wasn't actually high, you know.
