Trivia: Ernest P. Worrell
  • Acting for Two-Hundred: Jim Varney not only plays all of Ernest's relatives, but on some occasions, will also play additional characters who have no relation to Ernest whatsoever, such as the creepy alien cyborg - Dr. Otto, drill sergeant-turned-school teacher - Sergeant Glory, and criminal mastermind - Mr. Nash.
    • In Hey Vern, It's Ernest, multiple supporting actors play multiple characters.
  • Breakaway Advertisement: From advertising stuff to a film star.
  • The Other Darrin: John Hudgens voiced Ernest in CGI commercials after Varney's death, and actually played him in live action commercials circa 2005. Safe to say, the fandom did not rejoice.
  • What Could Have Been: A direct-to-DVD movie called Pirates Of The Plain was originally going to be "Ernest the Pirate", but then...well, you know.
  • You Look Familiar: Jake in Ernest Goes to Camp 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.
