Fireman Sam (original title "Fireman Sam") is a Welsh series that tells the funny adventures of the brave young Sam, his colleagues and the inhabitants of PontyPandy, a seaside town in Wales (the name is a mix of two towns really exist). The first cartoon series first made its appearance in 1985 and ended in 1994, but has remained very popular with young viewers to the present day. From 20 February 2012, from Monday
Sam is really the hero next door. He has all the characteristics of the model firefighter, who remains calm and composed in the face of an emergency and always offers his help to all those who need it.
Our protagonist has two grandchildren whom he loves: James and Sarah, two five year old twins. In his spare time, Sam likes to lock himself in his garage and invent new objects: his inventions range from an automatic potato picker created from old parts of a bicycle to a machine that is able to replace the city's band. Together with his firefighters and the inhabitants of PontyPandy, he experiences amazing new adventures every day.
