Best Of Ernest, The

Get set for hours of fun with the most loquacious lout ever to show up unannounced at America's door! Beginning as a TV pitchman in 1980, drawling the praises of products like local amusement parks, car dealerships, Sprite and Mello Yello to an unseen (and clearly uncomfortable) next door neighbor named Vern, Ernest P. Worrell soon wormed his way into audiences' hearts - making the leap to the big screen in 1987! Over the next decade or so, this hilarious hick would tackle everything from barracks life to basketball stardom to an African jewel hunt to an unexpected semester within the halls of academia, armed with nothing but a simpleton's smile and a fast talkin' catchphrase: KnowhutImean?

The Best Of Ernest provides an unbeatable overview of the iconic character's twenty year progress from local commercial spots to major national ad campaigns culminating with 5 of the finest entries from the beloved film series (Ernest in the Army, Ernest Rides Again, Ernest Goes to School, Slam Dunk Ernestand Ernest Goes to Africa). Along the way, you'll encounter delightful characters like Rimshot (the Jack Russell Terrier who is undoubtedly smarter than his master), Ernest's brothers in hickdom Chuck and Bobby (played by Gailard Sartain and Bill Bryge), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who helps Ernest master the finer points of slam dunking) and a wild and woolly assortment of Worrell family members (all played by star Jim Varney - showing off his thespian range and rubber-faced impressions), but don't count on meeting ol' Vern!
