** A bit of FridgeHorror comes up if you think about this one at length. Both Sam and Station Officer Steele constantly remark about how bad Elvis's cooking is, but we never see ''them'' even consider having either taking the job themselves. Steele might refuse to do the cooking out of pride (though he's probably very bad at it anyway), but given Sam devises elaborate machinery to cook in Elvis's place rather than try it himself, one can only imagine how much worse he is.
* LimitedSocialCircle[=/=]OmegaCast: No-one other than the main characters is ever seen during an ordinary episode, though one of the 1997 tie-in books featured a cameo from an unidentified police constable. Somewhat hammered home when the same character model was used for two unrelated guest characters in frequency. In TheMovie ''The Great Fire of Pontypandy'', the ''entire town'' is evacuated, and this ''still'' just seems to be the main characters. Particularly weird because you've got maybe a dozen people, loaded into a small school bus and a van, but they drive past ''dozens'' of houses and shops on the way.
** The town's population expands somewhat in later series - another 6 or 7 characters are introduced!

** Tom Thomas and Moose Roberts, starting from Series 8 onward. They are the self-proclaimed "Wild Men of Pontypandy" who tend to get into a lot of friendly debates and competitions with each other in regards to their wildlife skills. Notably, before Moose showed up, Tom generally didn't interact with the citizens of Pontypandy outside of a rescue operation.

Notably, before Moose showed up, Tom generally didn't interact with the citizens of Pontypandy outside of a rescue operation. It helps that they're both foreigners, with Tom coming from Australia, and Moose from Canada.

* LeeroyJenkins: In due part because he didn't trust Elvis's judgement due to his tendency to bungle when not actively doing his job, Arnold goes right ahead in trying to rescue Mrs. Chen and Lily who are stranded on top of their car in the flooded streets of Pontypandy while ignoring Elvis's pleas to wait for Ellie to return with Venus so she could secure the Firefighters and the car with a line. Arnold does manage to save Lily and bring her to Elvis, but ends up losing his footing on his return trip for Mrs. Chen and would have been washed away were it not for her holding on to his hand at the last minute. Brave he may have been, but were it not for Elvis rescuing him (plus Mrs. Chen) after being secured by Venus' tow wench, he may well have been lost on his first big emergency in Pontypandy. To Arnold's credit, however, he does apologize to Elvis afterword.
