* ObfuscatingStupidity: This version of Ernest seems the most capable, and is thought to be playing up the not actually believing that Santa is indeed SantaClaus until searching his sack, being skeptical of Harmony being alone with Santa's sack and her lies. He of course comes up with the schemes to get Santa out of jail, get Joe's location and sneak Santa into the studio.

** As well as the old Santa, as his BerserkButton indicates. This, more than anything else, is the trait a retiring Santa looks for when selecting a replacement.

* ShoutOut: To ''Film/StarWars'' when Ernest hits "Priority Delivery" mode on the sleigh and the sleigh suddenly accelerates within a light pattern much like the ''Millennium Falcon'' going into light speed.
