What Happened to Ice in Hocus Pocus?

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy reprised their roles as the revived Sanderson witches.



Larry Bagby and Tobias Jelinek, who played the beloved high school bullies in the 1993 Disney original, exclusively disclose to EW that they were not asked to return for the sequel.

A California actor named Larry Bagby played Ice, a.k.a. Ernie. When Larry first began his career, he was much younger than Tobias and had only minor roles.




The Wonder Years, Saved by the Bell, Married with Children, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, CSI, Malcolm in the Middle, and ER are just a few of the legendary movies on his list.

Although it doesn’t seem like they overlapped, “Ice” appeared in both NCIS and The Young and the Restless, just like his friend “Jay.”

In the cult classic Disney film Hocus Pocus, Jay and Ice play the stereotyped bullies of the 1990s. When Max comes across them and has his shoes taken, he initially notices them hanging out in the cemetery.

Ernie corrects Jay to let him know that his name is now Ice, as proven by the name tastefully cut into his hair after Jay introduces himself and before Ernie.

Although Jay and Ice like to mess with people, it is obvious that when they called the witches “ugly,” they were messing with the wrong people.



They ended up in some vintage cage traps hanging from the Sanderson Sisters’ hut’s ceiling as a result of this small remark. Who knows, they may still be swinging there now. We never saw them get released.
