bug-eyed boy from venus (36/58)

The popular fireman and his friends continue their
adventures on Five. Set in the Welsh village of
Pontypandy, Fireman Sam charts the adventures
of the brave and resourceful fireman and his crew,
including Penny Morris, Elvis Cridlington and
Station Officer Steele.
Heroic and calm in any crisis, Fireman Sam is a
pillar of the community. He and his colleagues are
always on hand to respond to any call for help,
whether it be putting out fires, rescuing children
from quarries or helping cats out of trees. In his
spare time, Fireman Sam is a bit of an inventor
and likes nothing better than tinkering in his
inventing shed.
Based on an original idea by two former firemen
from Kent, this lively series is brought to life
through colourful stop-frame animation. Fireman
Sam also has an important safety message to
impart, and the series has recently partnered with
the charity CAPT (Children’s Accident Prevention Trust) to raise awareness of fire prevention.
In the first episode of the week on Monday, Norman plans an elaborate UFO hoax, but his prank goes awry when he stumbles into a swamp!
Tuesday’s episode, ‘Bathtime for Dusty’, sees scruffy dog Dusty chosen as the new fire station mascot. Before the mutt can take up his new position, however, he must first have a bath…
In Wednesday’s instalment, ‘Neighbourhood Watch’, Mike Flood is involved in a rooftop drama after the children get carried away with their new community group…
Thursday’s show, ‘Twitchers in Trouble’, finds Trevor and Dilys looking forward to a birdwatching date. When Trevor’s shelter catches fire, however, the date becomes hotter than the pair had planned!
And rounding off the week’s adventures on Friday is ‘Carnival of Junk’. A rubbish tip proves to be a trap for the unwary James, but the recycled rubbish later becomes the centrepiece in a Caribbean-style carnival.
