Ernesto "Ernie" Cardenas, age 49, has been George's best friend since the second grade and is his current co-worker. He's a bit childish and insecure, but grows as the series goes on. While he is silly, he is also nice, friendly and lovable. He works on the assembly line at Power Bros. Aviation. He lived with his parents for a majority of the series. He can seem a bit naive and insecure, but overall he is a very lovable and big-hearted person.


  • Ernie was in 120 episodes in total.
  • Ernie was born on valentines day, the day of love.
    • That is a bit ironic since Ernie has a hard time finding love.
  • Ernie is named after and based on a real life friend of the real George Lopez.
