* {{Tearjerker}}: The episode "Steele Under Par", when Station Officer Steele is forced to retire from his job. [[spoiler: He gets to stay in the end, however.]]

* {{Tearjerker}}: The episode "Steele Under Par", when Station Officer Steele is forced to retire from his job. Interestingly the bittersweet music which plays in the retirement party scene was originally used for the Christmas presents scene in "Snow Business". [[spoiler: He gets to stay in the end, however.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Sarah and James averted it in the non-CGI series, where they got along well and were always the [[Main/OnlySaneMan Only Sane Kids]] compared to Norman. They played this trope straight in the CGI series, probably because it's more realistic.

There are, apparently, ''two'' sets of voice actors for most of the characters, one meant for the UK and one the US (the US version is actually dubbed in Canada by, of all studios, Ocean Group), with the strange exception of Tom and Moose who have the same voice actor in both sets, since they're supposed to be foreigners (Australian and Canadian, respectively). In addition, Station Officer Steele is addressed as Fire Captain Steele and Chief Fire Officer Boyce is referred to as Fire Department Chief Boyce instead. The biggest differences with the voices is the general lack of assorted "British" accents, and in a couple of cases, less "harsh" sounding characters, notably with Sarah, James, and Norman, though Gareth inverts the trend. The "in-house" vibe of it makes it come off as a bit different from an out-right re-dub, and it would explain Tom and Moose. Note that the US version is not very common, only appearing on the Fireman Sam US YouTube channel. Beyond that, there's little evidence to suggest the dub even exists at all. Also, the US dub has only been made recently, as PBS Kids Sprout aired the series as late as 2014 with the UK dub.

* CuteButCacophonic: Sarah Jones' voice can reach an incredibly shrill pitch, especially when her brother James is getting into trouble and she's trying to stop him. Her other voice actress tones this down.

** Both instances seem to be a TakeThat against GPS systems often leading users in the wrong direction, or over routes that are either closed or non-existent.



* ArtEvolution: In stages with the different series. Sam and the other firefighters have remained similar in appearance along the way; the twins and Mandy rather less so. Dilys has changed in appearance too, becoming much younger-looking.

Dilys has changed in appearance too, becoming much younger-looking.



** AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Sarah and James can be this to each other from time to time, especially during the CGI series (compared to previous series, where they rarely, if ever, argued at all; the change likely came because their behavior could come off as unrealistic). Though they ''are'' twins, so neither is really younger than each other.
* TheBully: Norman. At least when it comes to practical jokes.

* CaptainObvious: Sarah acted this way in some of the early CGI episodes.



* TitleDrop: Frequently, often more than once an episode. Whatever the emergency, "Call Fireman Sam!" is ''always'' the correct response.

* TitleDrop: Frequently, often more than once an episode. Whatever the emergency, "Call Fireman Sam!" is ''always'' the correct response. Note that this only applies to the CGI series, as in the older series, the more correct term "call the fire service" was used.
* TookALevelInDumbass: Norman in the CGI series. Whereas in the older seasons, his pranks and plans tended to be better-engineered, they were, for the most part, rather harmless, and he knew when things had gone too far, in the CGI series, his plans are made hastily and irrationally, often goes in over his head, and causes ''alot'' of consternation, especially in such episodes as "Runaway Cart".
** All the same, though, Norman, of all people, was the sensible one in "Stuck in the Mud", in which Trevor was blinded by pride and opened the bonnet of his bus to check the overheated engine, only to let in enough oxygen to set it alight.
