There was also the "Family Album" special, in effect the first Ernest movie, with Varney playing various ancestors of Ernest.
Like, in a "cowboys and Indians" scenario, Varney plays a scout who has returned to a US Cavalry fort to warn of an impending attack, only to find the whole company is gone. Surrounded, he plays all the roles to make it sound like the fort is fully staffed by a bunch of soldiers ready to attack, performing various Western archetypes, from a John Wayne-esque officer to an Irish soldier.
:makes rifle cocking noises with a large pair of scissors:
"Ah, repeaters! Looks like you could get your whole FIST down the barrel!"
or an obviously crazed man: "Sir, we were wondering when we could go into battle. All of this ordnance has Luke and the boys a mite overstimulated. In fact, if I saw a Indian, I'd probably cut his guts up with a rock.
Or riverboat gambler Rhett Worrell.
OPPONENT: Come on! Bet! What are you, a fraidycat?
VARNEY: Suh, no one has ever called a Worrell a fraidycat. (pause) Just a moment. (flips open a notebook and goes through the pages) Fruitcake... fritterbrain... (snaps book closed) No one has ever called a Worrell a fraidycat!
