Mummy's Little Pumpkin (41/58)

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, Halloween becomes scarier than usual when Norman leaves his pumpkin lantern unattended.

Tuesday’s episode is ‘Joker Soaker’. To everyone’s horror, Norman has a new toy called a joker soaker – the most powerful water pistol in the world…

In Wednesday’s instalment, ‘Fit for Nothing’, the firemen are training hard to appear in a calendar of ‘Wales’ Fittest Firefighters’. Who will be the fittest?

Thursday’s show, ‘Deep Water’, sees Mandy and Norman get into trouble when they go hunting for treasure.

And rounding off the week’s adventures on Friday is ‘The Beast of Pontypandy’. A black beast has appeared in Pontypandy and Woolly has disappeared…
