Since debuting first on Welsh TV in 1985 and the whole of the UK in 1986, Fireman Sam™ has become the Hero Next Door. Fireman Sam, a resident of the Welsh village of Portypandy, frequently rescues his colleagues and fellow townspeople. The children of Pontypandy know help is always close at hand -- thanks to the brave and resourceful Fireman Sam. Fireman Sam airs on Sprout® in the US. Our Fireman Sam store offers licensed clothing, Fireman Sam kids room decor and more.
