"Hey Vern! It's me! I'm on TV!" A Big-Chunk Double-Dip Super-Supreme Show! With the overwhelming success of Ernest Goes to Camp in 1987, Ernest-mania was in full force. The lovable southern bumpkin, a familiar face in numerous television commercials in the 80s, had finally reached the big screen, and now it was time for a stint on television in Hey Vern, It's Ernest! Jim Varney stars in this highly imaginative Saturday morning kid's show that was created at the height of Ernest-mania! Composed of a series of live-action comedy sketches, each show follows a particular weekly theme such as outer space, hobbies, scary things or magic! Featuring some of Varney's best-known characters, including Ernest P. Worrell, Auntie Nelda, Dr. Otto, Sergeant Glory, Baby Ernest, Astor Clement, and many more!
Mill Creek Entertainment has sent over the breaking news that the 1988 Saturday morning live-action series starring the late Jim Varney will come to DVD on January 18th with Hey, Vern, It's Ernest! - The Complete Series. This 2-disc set contains all 13 episodes of the show's short-lived run, presented in full screen video and with English 2.0 Stereo sound. The 293-minute-long package will cost a mere $9.98, and we've got the box art for you below. This announcement took us by surprise, we have to admit...but it's VERY welcome, because so many among those of you who are our registered site members have voted for this show to come out on DVD. And Mill Creek listened! Y'KnowWhatImean?
