Show Notes

Jason and Wyatt return for another episode of "Rediscovered," a podcast reviewing obscure TV, moves, and cartoons from the '80s. Episode 7 covers the 1988 TV series Hey Vern, It's Ernest! starring Jim Varney. The Saturday morning show ran for just 13 episodes with a featured theme and recurring segments including Ernest and several sketch comedy skits.

Our podcast goes in depth on the show including the origins, cast and crew, broadcast and home video history, and episode breakdown. We'll also give you our favorite and least favorite episodes, characters/skits, and overall thoughts on whether we recommend you rediscover the TV series or leave it in the past.

We also welcome your comments on Hey Vern, It's Ernest! and any suggestions for TV shows, movies, or cartoons for us to review in future episodes. Visit our show notes at or watch our podcast recording session on the RD80s YouTube channel!
