YMMV: Fireman Sam
  • Cargo Ship: Elvis is very protective of Dolly, the fire station training dummy.
  • Damsel Scrappy: Norman in the newer series.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song. When he hears the firebell chime, Fireman Sam is there on time...
  • Memetic Mutation: The Welsh Fireman YouTube Poop videos
    Get out, get the <bleep> out, and stay out!
    • Elvis remarking that the phone lines are...DEAD?!
      • Acsended Meme: The episode containing that meme had somehow made its way to the compilation NSPCC Children's TV Favourites in 1990.
    • Elvis in Norman's Tricky Day: "Elbow grease...?"
    • Pretty much every character's vocabulary is limited to memes. (at least if you remember watching that cartoon when you were a kid) Take a sip of every time someone says "Mama mia! Cacosa!", "I've done this a thousand times, I have!", "Oh mam!", "NORMAN! SCRAM!", "That's uh... abit torn, isn't it? Sorry!", or "It's Mr. Evans! He's hurt his arm!" and yyou'll explode with laughter in seconds!
  • So Bad, It's Good: The live-action adaptation, Fireman Sam In Action, released in 1996. Full of what could most likely scare some viewers.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Norman Price is usually the cause of whatever has gone wrong in Pontypandy that day. He's rude AND a ginger. He's also the only kid being raised by a single mother.
