“Hey Vern, I got my own TV show!”

That's right, that goofy Southern guy who had spent years addressing the camera as “Vern” in TV commercials now had his own show, hot off the surprising success of the 1987 feature, Ernest Goes to Camp.

Rubber-faced comedian Jim Varney, who created the Ernest P. Worrell character, starred in this live-action series of sketches, which featured well-intentioned lessons and humor. Though there were three other actors in the cast, Varney himself played a variety of the roles, including a baby, a cranky woman, and the mad scientist Dr. Otto.

The show ran only one season (enough to earn Varney an Emmy), but Ernest P. Worrell lived on in a string of films, including Ernest Goes to Jail, Ernest Scared Stupid, and Slam Dunk Ernest.
