Actor Jim Varney, best known for portraying the character Ernest P. Worrell in a series of commercials and films throughout the '80s and '90s, passed away on 10 Feb 2000.

I've created a sourced profile with a decent biography and parents attached, as well as any relevant category I could find. Further improvements are welcomed and appreciated! Mr. Varney also awaits connection to the main tree.

His commercials were so amusing.  "Hey, Vern!"

I remember at least one movie, but I agree that the commercials always made me laugh. I get the impression he was a pretty good comedian and landed that gig because he had a good schtick that made others laugh.

"Ernest Saves Christmas" is one of my fond memories, with "Ernest Scared Stupid" and "Ernest Goes to Camp" a tie.
