    I just spotted John Cherry is selling the design artwork for the memorable trolls, mostly seen toward the end of the movie Ernest Scared Stupid. The prices range from $200-$500 for a framed piece on the Ernest P. Worrell Official Shop . There are 20 pieces and it will be interesting to see how they sell. They include notes like "Disney said there was too much snot going down [his] lips" and names for the trolls.

    The costumes, masks and effects were done by the Chiodo brothers special effects artists. This article shows how a couple of the masks were repurposed from the movie Killer Clowns from Outer Space made a couple years earlier. They also did the Large Marge claymation for Pee-wee's Big Adventure-- very cool!

  2. Those are really cool and interesting. Fun seeing the notes they made about the drawings.

    Those are really cool. Prices seem a little higher than I would be willing to spend but it's hard to put a dollar value on unique pieces like this. Hopefully there will be enough interest to release more from the archives.

    Wonder if they would have enough images for a production art book. Scared Stupid is one of those polarizing movies -- you either love it or hate it.
