  • Sam breaks the fourth wall at the end.
  • This episode had never been released on a BBC Video in the UK, it did however have its own VHS release by a different company and then on the HIT Entertainment DVD "Ultimate Children's Favourites".
  • This is the only Season 2 episode to feature an appearance from Rosa.
  • If this episode takes place in the same year it was broadcasted in English and Welsh (1988), then that would mean the Pontypandy Fire Station was built in 1938.
  • This is the last Season 2 episode to have Season 1 credits.


  • When Sam tells Trevor he is going inside to fetch some more nails, he has his helmet off, but when he enters the station he is wearing it.
