Ernie Potts is a fictional character in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
Ernie runs a wrecking crane for a demolition company in Hillwood. He's knocked down about 500 buildings, and keeps a piece of each one in his room as a souvenir. He has a metal plate in his head. Ernie is also musically talented and can play several instruments. He can play the sousaphone (a flashback in "The Journal"), the accordion (at Blockapalooza in the movie), and the concertina ("Arnold as Cupid" and Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie). He also has a decent singing voice.
He's around 45 years old. He likes writing poetry, as shown in "Casa Paradiso" and "Ernie in Love". He doesn't have any kids, nor has he ever married. He's often seen with Mr. Hyunh, though the two have been known to argue. Like the rest of the boarders he has an antagonistic relationship with Oskar Kokoshka, being one of the most willing to call him out for his behavior. While usually loud and abrasive, he's shown many times to be rather sensitive and soft deep down.
