In 1987, if things had gone as planned, one of the Nightmare on Elm Street episodes would have included a flashback scene showing a still-living Freddy Krueger as a counselor working at Camp Crystal Lake. Freddy, it was going to be shown, molested a young Jason Voorhees, further adding to the subtle sympathy for Jason that usually bubbles up in Friday the 13th movies. I don't know why plans for this plot line were killed off; it would have made for a decent crossover long before Freddy vs. Jason ever came to be, and it would have deepened the characters of both Freddy and Jason.
