Ernie sightings after 1971This is a featured page

Era: For Your Eyes Only, Never Say Never Again
By the 1980s, both Blofeld and SPECTRE had become distant memories, despite the attempts of a few pretenders in the late 1970s (namely Karl Stromberg and Hugo Drax) to pull off schemes of Blofeldian proportions. Scholars have since pointed out that the fact that neither of their schemes involved any manner of monetary gain (since both of these diabolical masterminds were psychopathic billionaires with no need for funds) makes Ernie's involvement extremely unlikely... to say nothing of the fact that a cat is not generally inclined to conduct business from under water, nor from outer space.

Ernie's only confirmed reappearance occurred in 1981, when he popped up on the rooftops of London in control of a bald and unstable invalid (maybe one of his former puppets?), in an attempt to rid the world of Bond
with a remote-controlled helicopter. Predictably, said attempt was a spectacular failure, and Ernie managed to make his escape before Bond plunked this last of the Blofelds into a smokestack (loosed from Ernie's mental control, this clearly deranged final host went to his death raving about "stainless steel delicatessen", suggesting that Ernie's pickings for potential hosts had grown quite thin indeed).

Two years later, a bearded, bowtied professorial type claiming to be Ernst Stavro Blofeld emerged and attempted to rework Ernie's nuclear blackmail scheme from 20 years earlier. This "Blofeld" indeed carried the trademark white Persian cat, but it remains hotly debated whether this was truly Ernie, or a mere prop (some scholars believe it might actually have been one of Ernie's surviving doubles from his Las Vegas period). In any case, the fate of this particular "Blofeld" and his cat has been lost to history.
