Sam is the hero next door!

Fireman Sam (Sam Tân in its original Welsh) is a Welsh children's television series. It is based around the inhabitants of Welsh town Pontypandy (a portmanteau of two real-life towns, Pontypridd and Tonypandy), especially firefighter Sam Jones.

Why It Rocks

  1. Catchy music, including the theme song and the rescue theme.
  2. Nice stop-motion animation.
  3. Really good action.
  4. Impressive voice acting.
  5. Likeable characters.
  6. Funny moments such as Sam making fun of Trevor's Weight or Norman saying "My Tonsils Are Melting!" when his mouth is on fire.
  7. It teaches kids about fire safety.
  8. In Series 5, all the characters were voiced by only 3 voice actors. ISN'T THAT TALENT?

Bad Quality

  • The stop-motion animation on seasons 1-4 was cheap. For example, there was a tree moving in the background in one episode.
