Ernest Saves Christmas

Release: August 11, 1988

When Santa Claus decides to retire, he appoints a washed-up kiddie show host (Douglas Seale) to take his place. Along the way, the real Santa ends up in the slammer on Christmas Eve, and it's up to goonish, glad-handing Ernest P. Worrall (Jim Varney) to bust him out. Varney plays a handful of supporting characters, including a slick-talking attorney. This film was followed by Ernest Goes to Jail.

Ernest P. Worell: "That's it. Yuck it up. He happens to be a close, personal friend of mine. Nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah. Fifth graders think they know everything. -Ernest P. Worell"
Ernest: "No, there's only one person authorized to operate this sack. His big, red, oneness: The Claus. -Ernest"
Ernest: "(Singing) Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree... Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree. -Ernest"
