Fireman Sam Wiki is an online encyclopedia dedicated to detailing any and all information about the longest-running S4C/BBC/Cartoonito children's television series Fireman Sam. This wiki has been created by the fans for the fans of Fireman Sam, so feel free to add an information about the series that you know of.


Fireman Sam (Welsh: Sam Tân) is a British animated children's television series about a fireman named Sam Jones, his fellow firefighters, and other residents in the fictional Welsh rural village of Pontypandy (a portmanteau of two real towns, Pontypridd and Tonypandy). The original idea for the show came from two ex-firemen Dave Gingell and David Jones from London, England, who took their idea to artist and writer Rob Lee who developed the concept, and the show was commissioned.

The series' original run in Welsh was from 15 September 1987 to 20 June 1994 in Wales, on the children's block of Bumper Films and S4C, and in English from 17 November 1987 to 16 November 1994 in the rest of United Kingdom (including Wales), broadcasting on BBC1. The idea for the series was coined by two former ex-firemen from Kent, Dave Gingell and David Jones. It was written by Rob Lee.

Fireman Sam has also been dubbed in Scottish Gaelic as Sam Smalaidh. Fireman Sam has been aired in over 40 countries around the world and has been dubbed (also translated) in more than 30 languages including Mandarin Chinese.

The original show was finished in 1994, but the series did not stop yet. The whole original Fireman Sam series finished in 1996 that features Fireman Sam in Action and some of the merchandise like books.
