A 1988 film starring Jim Varney as his signature character, ErnestPWorrell. In it, Ernest has to save Christmas by helping Santa Claus, who has been incarcerated after trying to track down a man who has been chosen to be the next Santa. It's up to Ernest to get Santa out of jail and get a hold of Joe, the man chosen to be the next Santa.

!Tropes present:
* AnAssKickingChristmas: Joe is being forced to star in a movie that is essentially this, but it goes against his morals.
* FaceCam: Just like in the Ernest P. Worrell commercials, the movie includes a brief scene from Vern's POV.
* HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys: Ernest gives an answer that's just plain {{Technobabble}}.
* HyperspaceWardrobe: As with every Ernest movie.
* OverlyLongGag: "M." ''"V."'' "M." ''"V."'' "M." ''"V."'' "M." ''"V."''
** "Oh Christmas tree oh Christmas tree...oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree."
* ProductPlacement: Surprisingly averted, seeing as the film is [[DisneyThemeParks set in]] ''[[UniversalStudios Orlando]]''. Although there was a scene filmed at Disney's Hollywood Studios, it was not portrayed as such.
* TheRunaway: Harmony, a teenage girl Ernest picks up while driving his taxi and who tags along for most of the movie.
* SantaClaus
* SavingChristmas: See above.
