* 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."

* 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!''

* TheAllegedCar: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6AUiIPBFOg One commercial for John L. Sullivan Chevrolet]] saw Ernest mocking the "one of these little foreign jobbies" that Vern had purchased (and was presently sitting in). Ernest laughs so hard at him he ends up having to kneel next to a tree.

** In the original commercials, Ernest was occasionally seen with a pet dog named Shorty, who often gave birth to puppies in Vern's pickup trucks (Shorty was always a different breed, and the puppies were never the same breed as Shorty); in some of the movies, Ernest's dog is male, and named Rimshot.

Further, in ''Hey Vern, It's Ernest!'', Shorty is instead ''Vern's'' dog, and is also male.



* YouLookFamiliar: Jake in ''Film/ErnestGoesToCamp'' is played by Gailard Sartain, who played Chuck in other films, with basically the same personality.
** Other regulars on ''Hey Vern, It's Ernest'' who played multiple characters also appeared in different movies in different roles, though their appearances are not as noticeable.

* NiceHat: Ernest always wore a baseball cap in the ads.
** Even in the shower, the pool, and underneath crash helmets.
** Only in the ads? That cap follows him everywhere. In ''Ernest Rides Again'' it'd even make a [[SignatureSoundEffect cork-popping noise]] whenever he took it off.
** It follows him so much that his supposed abandonment of said hat in both ''Ernest Goes To Jail'' (as [[CriminalDoppelganger Felix Nash]] refused to wear it) and ''Ernest Rides Again'' (where the NiceHat is abandoned by his kidnapping while the Crown of England was stuck on his head) serve as a plot point in both movies.
