  1. I have no particular affection for Ernest but I’m excited! My only frame of reference is 1991’s Ernest Scared Stupid, which scared the crap out of me as a kid. At the time, I had no idea who Ernest was, and didn’t really find out that he was a much larger personality until hearing about it from Elston himself on a podcast.

  2. Someone on a Laser Time told a story about how they made playing cards based on famous pop culture people, and that when one person played Pee-Wee and someone else played Earnest they both quit the game. Anyone know what I mean Vern?

    Maybe you could do a Royal Rumble featuring Earnest Vs. Slinky Dog Earnest, Vs. Billy Boogie Worrell Vs Cooder from the Simpsons, with a surprise run in from Pee-Wee

  3. Really good episode Brett, you did your research and it showed. I am looking forward to watching Ernest go to jail along with everyone.

  4. Really enjoyed this one and Brett did a fine job reuniting me with my nostalgia for Ernest. I enjoyed watching the movies as a kid and had no idea about the commercials and they sound fascinating. I was really surprised to hear how young Jim Varney died, because to me he always looked old. It was that weird rubber band skin that made him seem older than he was. He was one of those characters that even my parents knew about. A household name and back in the day. Let’s never forget the joys he brought us a kids. He was one righteous doood.

  5. AWESOME!
    I am so damn excited to listen to this. I watched the patreon showing of Family Album and couldn’t stop smiling. I remember renting the “Ernest Film Festival” (AKA the tape with all his commercials) VHS waaaay back in the day. I fell in love with it so much, I recorded it onto cassette tape so I could listen to it in car rides and recess at school. Thanks so much Brett for doing this. It’s about damn time he gets some much needed love.

    I would love a commentary for the commercials if you guys get time. I’ve already watched them multiple times since I found them all on Youtube.

  6. I liked Ernest so much as a kid in the 1990s. Why is production so interesting to Brett? He should make a tv show or movie.

  7. Ha, i remember being a kid and watching that yellow mellow commercial and wondering why Ernest was being such a dick to Vern (laugh at MY bear, asshole.) I always enjoy listening to you guys talk about shit you’re really interested in. It just seems more fun and if you do it right, you can bring more people into the fold… Except wrestling (I keed)

  8. YES!!! Finally!!! Thanks for putting this together, guys! I was born in Georgetown, Ky, roughly 10 miles away from Lexington, Varney’s birthplace. Some family friends of ours were actually really good friends with him and had him over on a regular basis, though I was never there for it.

    I can only hope he was trying to convince them to put on long pants, musk oil and find some action.

  9. I remember years back how he did some sort of hunting show, or special, or some sort (don’t really remember what it was, I was like six when I saw it and didn’t care for it because I was six), wherein he gave hunting safety tips like how to not shoot yourself in the face while climbing up a tree.
