When the ladder falls over backwards with Ernest in the beginning, you can see he jumps off screen before it hits the ground. You also see that he wasn't very high off the ground. Maybe 3-4 feet. See more »
The version that aired on NBC's The Wonderful World of Disney is divided into two parts, with part 2 starting with Ernest talking to his turtle. The closing credits of this version are also different, airing with the Kamp Kikakee logo painted on a wooden post in the background and the instrumental theme/Indian chant that aired during the start of the movie.

This was the movie that made me grow to love Ernest films and the Ernest character in paticular. That was back in the 80's when I was little and I'm 15 now and still love his movies. His movies are considered silly and even stupid yet it still seems to make you laugh. This was probably my favorite of the Ernest films and it was the first of his many flicks that he made, they seemed to have put a lot of time into it.Though Ernest is often portrayed as clumsy and childish, this film shows an emotional side of Ernest in his pursuit of needing friends and trying to do the right thing to save the camp. This movie also holds a very good plot that will keep you watching it. This is indeed one of his best movies yet and you'll want to watch it again and again with family and friends. If your a fan of Ernest and have not yet seen this film (which I hope you have),then you don't know what your missing, see it!
