OtherLittleGuy: The Ernest character I can leave, but all I've heard about Jim Varney was that he was one of the nicest people who was in show business at the time, and he left the world too soon. His Jed Clampett in the "Beverly Hilbillies" reboot was spot-on.

Agreed - by all accounts I've seen, he was a genuine, down-to-earth nice guy.

And, growing up on the Hillbillies, I thought he did a great Uncle Jed.
Actually, everyone did a pretty good takeoff on the original cast.
