Underground Ernie hits the Thomas and Tank Engine tracks with the everyday adventure of Ernie (voiced by ex footballer and celebrity crisp eater, Gary Lineker) the human underground supervisor with his fellow team members set in an international train station presumably set in London.
The locomotives under Ernie all have characters of their own. There is Bakerloo, Victoria, Circle, Jubilee and the twins, Hammersmith and City. Sometimes trains from across the world including Paris, Brooklyn, Moscow, Sydney join them.
The show is aimed at younger children and my own son enjoyed the series when it was first shown when he was a toddler. However as it features anthropomorphic locomotives the show is compared to both Thomas the Tank Engine and Chuggington.
However Underground Ernie is a CGI animated series but the animation is rather crude which harks back to the early 1990s rather than 2006 and the crudeness is off putting but the target audience does not seem to mind.
