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...
    • The "One Way Street" song the girls and ladies sing on the way to the concert featuring the boyband in the episode of the same name.
    "You gotta get where you're goin', and keep on walking; gotta get where you're goin', to reach the top! Gotta get where you're goin'..."
    • Doubling as a Crowning Music of Awesome is Elvis' "Pontypandy Rock" from "Ultimate Heroes". Elvis absolutely kills it on the vocals, too, especially at the end.
  • Memetic Mutation: The Welsh Fireman YouTube Poop videos
    Get out, get the <bleep> out, and stay out!
    SPECIAL K! (with superimposed image of said cereal's box)
    • Elvis remarking that the phone lines are...DEAD?!
      • Ascended 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... a bit torn, isn't it? Sorry!", or "It's Mr. Evans! He's hurt his arm!" and you'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.
