Expo Ernie was the friendly robot ambassador for EXPO 86. A technological feat about of his time, he was powered by remote control and would greet people with his signature voice.
After the fair wrapped up Ernie went into retirement but is occasionally wheeled out to special events. He's owned by one of Canada's richest people, Jimmy Pattison, who also keeps backup parts from non-operational Ernies.
HERE is a documentary we did trying to track down the "lost" Expo Ernie.
We also make an EXPO 86 logo t-shirt which you can see HERE, and a Rainbow War t-shirt HERE.
