Web Video / Arson Sam

Arson Sam is a series on YouTube that depicts Fireman Sam as an evil arsonist (whose hobby is to set things on fire) rather than a friendly firefighter. Also, episode clips are played backwards with subtitles added, to make it look like the fire brigade is actually doing the opposite of what they should normally do. And the lyrics to the theme tune are altered.

This series provides examples of the following:

  • Back from the Dead: Dilys when Sam kills her, lights the store on fire, and Dennis uses his "Anti dead person" potion on her.
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: An example of it occurs in Episode 5:
    Pelvis Weekly: So she said, "burn my family ever again, and I'll drown you in a tub of cheese".
  • Drives Like Crazy: In one "episode", Jupiter is driven like crazy.
  • Feathered Fiend: Arson Crow.
  • He Knows Too Much: Norman gets left on a cliff once because of it.
  • Hot Pursuit: In one episode, Sam and the gang find out that one of the members, Mike Flood, is an undercover cop. Just then, police cars arrive and a high speed chase ensues.
  • The Mafia: The Arsonist brigade acts like this, lighting Dilys and Bella's stores on fire because they didn't pay protection money.
  • Pyro Maniac: This is the main plot of the series. Fireman Sam, along with the whole fire brigade, start fires rather than fight them. As a result, the police are usually on the lookout for them.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: After the high speed chase, the gang, led by Station Officer Steele, threaten to use a mega bomb on the police force unless they surrender. They refuse. The bomb is detonated.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Thanks to the backwards running footage, the characters run in to the burning buildings.
