Nightmare on Wilson Way is the 62nd episode and serves as the Halloween special themed episode of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. The episode premiered in 3-D on October 12, 2007 at 7:30 PM EDT/PDT and had its' first 2-D airing October 20 of that same year at 5:30 PM EDT/PDT.


Mac is beaten, abused and tied to Bloo's bed by Bloo because of his problems with sugar rushes, and Bloo says that he will pull the ultimate Halloween prank: a can of peanut brittle with a snake inside, which was done year after year (although this prank seems childish, it has been proven that it can do a lot of damage). Meanwhile, the imaginary friends, led by house caretaker Frankie, dressed as Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls, are ready to go trick or treating, except for Coco (dressed as a chicken) and Wilt, who will be handing out treats for the kids, including a breakaway arm as a trick to scare some of them; Eduardo, who's scared of everything and Mr. Herriman, who is in charge of the house. After failing and trying with just about everyone, Mr. H. falls prey for the trick that Bloo had done, and drops dead, due to a heart attack. Bloo has to think quickly on what to do, and decides to bury the seven-foot tall rabbit in the back. Suddenly, he becomes a zombie after that.

Meanwhile, Madame Foster returns through the back entry to get her witch wig, and she falls under Mr. Herriman's spell, scaring every one. Then, one by one, Wilt, Coco, Eduardo and Frankie - as well as the other imaginary friends - become the undead. Bloo, Eduardo, and Coco rush upstairs and Coco falls and the undead make her a zombie. Bloo and Eduardo are the only ones left but Madame Foster fools Eduardo turning him into a zombie. Bloo rushes to the bedroom where Mac is tied up. Mac and Bloo get scared and Bloo flies out the window and returns with two trick or theaters. Bloo then tells them about the zombies and they get scared. Bloo piles candy into his hands and feeds it to Mac, bursting out of the room and through the door. Bloo feeds chocolate to Mac making him have a sugar rush. Mac attacks the zombies until he is blasting himself out the door, and then just as Blooregard is about to become one of the living dead, Mr. Herriman says that it was all a trick to get their paybacks on Bloo's prank. Bloo says he thought he was in real trouble and Frankie tells Bloo that he is, because he unleashed a monster worse than a zombie: a nearly-naked just wearing underwear only Mac on a sugar rush.

In the closing credits, we see the almost naked Mac waking up the morning after and seeing a hand, and Wilt recovers it, leading to Mac fainting.



  • The title is a reference to the franchise of slasher movies titled A Nightmare on Elm Street.
  • The first three trick-or-treaters are dressed as The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and The Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz.
  • In flashbacks to a previous Halloween, Frankie is wearing a Tank Girl costume, Madame Foster is wearing a Yoda costume, Wilt is a werewolf which was previously seen in One False Movie and Cheese A Go-Go and Bloo is dressed as the Powerpuff Girls antagonist, Mojo Jojo.
  • Several of the imaginary friends are dressed as members of the Village People (biker, cowboy, pirate, police officer, and American Indian chief). Upon seeing them, Madame Foster sings "Why, aren't you cute?" to the tune of Y.M.C.A.
  • Mabel Licorice is dressed as Batman, Snootz is The Cheshire Cat, and Pinecone Cola is seen wearing a Huckleberry Hound costume.
  • Frankie is dressed as Blossom from the other Craig McCraken Cartoon Network creation The Powerpuff Girls. In one scene, One-Eye Cy walks over to her and asks "Frankie, have you seen my bow?" When seeing her wearing Blossom's bow, One-Eye Cy (Bloppy Pants In Captions) angrily walks away, muttering "I knew I should have picked Bubbles." In a later scene, he is seen zombified, but dressed as Bubbles.
  • This episode has received criticism from fans because of the ending. Many fans felt that the Housemates were hypocrites in regards to their treatment of Bloo and felt him pulling harmless pranks wasn't enough to be scolded in comparison to what they did. And he only summoned a Sugar crazed Mac out of self defense.
  • Rodney Squiddlebeak can be seen dressed as a Colonial Warrior/Viper Pilot from the 1978 show, Battlestar Galactica.
  • Chief Hoseynose is dressed up as Mr. Peanut without the monocle and top hat, and Fluffer Nutter as The Wicked Queen from Snow White.
  • Jackie Khones wears a costume inspired by the outrageous fashion of pimps in blaxploitation films like The Mack (1974) or Willie Dynamite (1974). Jackie obviously has a soft spot for blaxploitation as seen in Jackie Khones and the Case of the Overdue Library Crook, where he is seen in a scene referencing the iconic theme song from Shaft (1971).
  • In one part of the episode, Bloo is dragging Mr. Herriman around the house (and trying to speak like him) to make him appear "alive" to the others. He begins spouting off a rant of "British" things, among them he says, "Bob's your uncle", which is probably a reference to the Happy Mondays song of the same name, but is British slang for "there you have it."
  • Mac doesn't wear his backpack in this episode.
