1342. Jim Varney “Ernest P. Worrell” signature character costume. (ca. 1982-1998) This signature costume was worn by Jim Varney as his endearing character “Ernest P. Worrell” who began in a series of national commercials, moved on to a TV series and ultimately starred in feature films for over a decade.
