Best Of Ernest 10 DVD Megaset!!!
 
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...kL._AA300_.jpg


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 Ernest and 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! KnowhutImean?
Also said to include (hearsay):
Ernest's Greatest Hits 1 and 2
Hey Vern, It's my family album
Your World as I see it
Dr. Otto and the Riddle of the Gloom Beam


Can anyone confirm these last few? If so I have an ebay auction to post asap.

How does this compare to the existing Ernest megaset that used to be found in bargain bins?

That only included:
Ernest Goes To Africa
Ernest's Greatest Hits Volume 1
Ernest's Greatest Hits Volume 2
Ernest in the Army
Hey Vern, It's My Family Album
Your World As I See It.\

Also Rides Again, Goes To School & Dr Otto have been OOP for quite some time.

Yeah but that is on BR so you wouldn't want it on DVD. Same goes for Camp & Jail.

I've always thought that the definitive Ernest collection should be titled:

"The Importance of Being Ernest".

Oh wow, I have to get this just to finally have Goes to School (my personal favorite) and Rides Again

Well it's fairly obvious these films are the ones owned by some no name company. Christmas is still owned by Disney. It looks like they gave up the rights to Slam Dunk, Goes to School and Rides Again (I believe they owned the last 2, I know they owned Slam Dunk since I still have the Touchstone DVD).

I was saying no one would want it on DVD with the BR available.

The Family Album was edited/abridged on the Essential Ernest set. Wonder if that will be the case here?

I like this set a lot, but don't care for the recycled cardboard cases. Just watched Ernest Goes to School. At the beginning, it says edited for time and content. Has it always said that? Running time is an hour twenty-nine minutes and a few seconds.

Both IMDb and Wikipedia list the running time as 89 minutes. I can't imagine anything in an Ernest movie being edited for content, seeing how they're geared for more general audiences. Maybe it's a blanket disclaimer the studio inserted for television sales?

Could someone tell me the contents of this set?

I know they're owned by a different company, but I can't imagine a best of Ernest set without Camp and Christmas.

I picked this up at my local Best Buy store for $19.99!
Great set for filling out your Ernest collection - the "Best of" is certainly a misnomer.
Released by Image/Madacy, who are somewhat reputable.

It contains the following 10 discs:
Hey Vern! It's My Family Album
Dr. Otto and the Riddle of the Gloom Beam
Ernest Greatest Hits - Volume 1
Ernest Greatest Hits - Volume 2
Ernest in the Army
Ernest Rides Again
Ernest Goes to School
Your World As I See It
Ernest Goes to Africa
Each is single-layer VHS quality; they will probably never be released any better.
I agree the recycled cardboard packaging is cheapass, but it sort of suits the series.
