* CreepyDoll: When ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' came out, ''Disney Adventures'' interviewed Varney (he played Slinky Dog). When asked if he ever had nightmares about toys, he said: "Never...until they made the Ernest doll. It's eerie to have a doll that looks like you. I have one at my house...I keep him tied up."

* CountingToPotato: In ''Hey Vern, It's Ernest'' while preparing for a baking contest, Ernest reminds Vern of three basic principles (while holding up four fingers): "Number one - always use plenty of sauce. B - always squeeze yer tomaters. And three - don't forget to thump your melons, knowwhutImean?"

* IronButtmonkey: Ernest wrote the book on this. At least once a movie he endures some ridiculous accident that would kill any living human. In ''Ernest Rides Again'' he [[LampshadeHanging acknowledges this]] by saying that he's "''This'' close to being an actual cartoon."

* NiceHat: Ernest is always wearing that baseball cap. Yes, even in the shower. Lampshaded in ''Ernest Rides Again'' by the [[SignatureSoundEffect cork-popping noise]] it would make whenever he took it off, and it was an actual plot point in both ''Ernest Goes To Jail'' ([[spoiler:[[CriminalDoppelganger Felix Nash]] [[SomethingTheyWouldNeverSay refused to wear it]]]]) and ''Ernest Rides Again'' ([[spoiler:it's abandoned by his kidnappers while the Crown of England was stuck on his head]]).

* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Chuck (Gailard Sartain) and especially Bobby (Bill Byrge). But even Ernest fits this description, having been a camp maintenance man, a camp counselor, a taxi driver, a bank clerk, a garbage man, the King of England (for several seconds), a basketball player, a golf-ball collector at a country club, and five or six varieties of janitor.[[note]]He also would have been a pirate, but he passed on before that could happen.[[/note]]

* POVCam: The commercials (and certain sections of the TV series) were shot from Vern's POV. Sometimes this was used in the films as well.
* PutOnABus: Chuck disappears after ''Ernest Goes to Jail'', for seemingly no reason, while Bobby continues to be paired with other, somewhat similar, characters for at least two more movies.
* RepeatingAd: A somewhat unique case: the ads were actually for different products and different markets, but still used the same scenery, dialogue, and jokes. Some of the ads were re-made later, and some of them were re-used in the films amd ''Hey Vern, It's Ernest!''
