Uh... the pic is of Jim Varney (who died at least 10 years ago). Varney invented the character Ernest, who's signature line was "Know what I mean, Vern?"

Ernest Borgnine was a whole 'nother guy.

Epic.

On a similar note, did the Broncos ever sign Foneco? I know they were looking at him.

Most do. Smurf not getting it is confusing since he has been at the Mane forever. Pontius Pirate gets it as does Kaylore. Ernest was a good guy and loved his acting. Dirty Dozen was one of them.

He will forever be remembered for his role in the critically acclaimed television show airwolf. A little known fact is, the Fall Guy wishes it were as bad ass Earnest in Airwolf.

Ernie Borgnine was in a lot of TV shows. You are all too young to remember "McHales Navy"

If anyone used to watch and enjoy Mystery Science theater 3000, I encourage you to watch when they did "Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders." It's pretty funny.

When I would stay home from school sick as a lad that was my favorite show. It was brilliant. Virgil, Gruber, Fuji, Capt. Leadbottom Binghamton. Great characters all.

Also would watch Mayberry RFD but that show creeped me out for some reason.

The Don Knotts character certainly gave me the willies! ugh!~

No, it couldn't have been Barney. Barney was a staple and the chemistry between he and Andy just couldn't be beat.

The problem with RFD was Ken Berry. The show stopped being about Andy and more about his character, Sam:

As for Ernest...It was hard telling my kids Mermaid Man had died...

Loved McKale's Navy growing up (watched it recently and didn't realize how racist it was!) but my most fond memory of him is as Cabby in "Escape from New York."
