The ABC sitcom The Goldbergs has given us some pretty great Halloween episodes over the past nine seasons, and this year’s sounds like it will be one of the best yet with Elvira, The Mistress of the Dark, guest starring.
In the upcoming Halloween episode, entitled The Hunt for the Great Albino Pumpkin, missing his Pops (the late George Segal), Adam (Sean Giambrone) finds himself disenchanted with his once favorite time of year, Halloween. Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) tirelessly tries to resurrect Adam’s Halloween spirit from the dead, encouraging Pop Pop (Judd Hirsch) to spend some quality time with his grandson. A night of mishaps and chaos turns out to be just the adventure Adam needs.
“Meanwhile, with the push and support from Joanne (Beth Triffon), Barry (Troy Gentile) decides to bring his former alter ego, rapper “Big Tasty,” back to life; and a chance encounter with the legendary Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, brings Barry and Joanne closer together.”
The Goldbergs 2021 Halloween episode “The Hunt for the Great Albino Pumpkin” premieres on Wednesday, October 27 (8:00 p.m. EDT) on ABC.
One of my favorite shows on TV, The Goldbergs is set in the 1980s with loads of fond nostalgia and pop culture tributes, including some references to the Halloween franchise. Robert Englund reprising his iconic role as Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street in the show’s 2018 Halloween episode.
