    Who else thinks Ernest T. was hilarious when he came down from the mountains?

    Howard Morris always was amazed he played Ernest T Bass in around 5 episodes, and it was his most famous role.
    He was sooo great in it.

    I loved his acting. The part was played perfectly. That is one character I'll never forget.

    Am I the only one that hates Ernest T. ?   I thought his character was stupid.

    You must be, McQueen5150. Ernest T is a great character and not stupid by any means. He figured out how to break out of the jail on his own, didn't he? Any ep with him is a winner.

    Love Ernest T. Bass!!   How could you not - he was a scream.  The scene where Ange and Barn are trying to remove him from Mrs. Wiley's house cracks me up even though I've seen it a million times!

    Did you Ernest T. fans know that Howard Morris also played "George" the TV repairman in "Andy and Helen have their day?"

    "She called me a crechture"!

    Barney and Ernest T. Bass made TAGS what it is. The greatest rural comedy series of all times.

    Even though he was only in a handful of episodes,Howard Morris made TAGS what it is today,a classic TV sitcom.

    The episodes with Ernest T. and Barney are classic.

    It's funny about Ernest T. Bass. I had a friend in college whose father had the same name as the actor who played him--Howard Morris.

    Howard Morris also played a radio newsman in one of the episodes where there was a prison break. Voice only, of course.

    Barney: If you can get out of here now, you're a magician.

    Ernest T.: Alakazammm... AROO!

    Barney: NOW CUT THAT OUT!

    I love that scene!
