* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Ernest is only vaguely grounded in reality, and it either charms or annoys people.



** Admittedly, the doll is [[http://www.amazon.com/Hey-Vern-Talking-Ernest-Doll/dp/B0048UCUWO not easy on the eyes]], but it did get a Music/KimyaDawson song written about it.

* 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]]). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfOfc9c_WpY One particular Ernest commercial]] saw Ernest dabble in "fencing"[[note]]painting a fence while acting like it's fencing[[/note]], and even dons a fencing mask... that has ''another'' one of his hats on it.

* 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]]
