The best thing that ever happened to Saturday morning!
1 September 2000 | by (Encino, CA) – See all my reviews

This show is hilarious! You never stop laughing. The writing is fantastic! Jim Varney is amazing as all of the various characters; you sometimes forget it's even him. And he is supported by an equally talented cast of actors and puppeteers.

Characters like Dust Bunny and George add the prefect element of fantasy to the world of Ernest P. Worrel and his neighbor, Vern. You also get to watch the antics of the likes of Bill and Coo, Existo the Magician, Lonnie Don, Chuck, Bobby and others.

The classic elements appeared in pretty much every episode, but you never got bored. It always stayed creative and funny. This is a fantastic program for young and old alike. If you can get yours hands on it, or catch it in reruns, do so. You will enjoy yourself, over and over again.
