Fireman Sam has gone all CGI on us! Following in the footsteps of Thomas & Friends, Fireman Sam is trying out the new technology and we're loving his fresh new look.
Join Fireman Sam, Norman, Mandy and Radar in all new adventures from the pleasant Welsh village of Pontypandy. Just typical days in the life of a firefighter, but very exciting for small viewers. Fireman Sam is a pillar of the community and the hero of every rescue, saving the supermarket on Fire Prevention Day and making a daring helicopter rescue in the midst of a forest fire. He also helps rescue dogs find missing people, and shares important safety tips with village people. Fireman Sam somehow finds the time to do it all!
It's amazing to me that Fireman Sam is the only children's firefighter-themed show. I guess when you have a program as entertaining as this one, who needs anything else? Originally launched in the UK before making it's way to the US, this continues to thrill children on a daily basis. And now even better with the new CGI format!
Episodes: Paper Plane Down, Hot & Cold Running Sniffer Dog, Hearts on Fire, Perilous Path and The New Hero Next Door.
