I think my jaw actually dropped when I started reading this thread, and here's why: when I was little, I LOVED this movie. I watched it all the time, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, I had to look for Ernie in the end scene. I actually made my mom pause the movie so I could find him. Sometimes, we'd even rewind a little and do it again. I think that was my favorite part of the movie, so it's a weird coincidence to discover this site and actually find "Ernie" here!
