Ernest the Engine and Others is a fictional parody of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends that airs on Comedy Inc. This skit mainly consists of 3 characters, Ernest the Engine, Stevie the Steam Train, and Gale the Guards Compartment. The main component of this skit is Stevie's stuttering at inappropriate moments, resulting in words that sound like swearing.
