5.0 out of 5 stars Glad its so good 23 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
Our 2yr old lad loves Fireman Sam. Thankfully its entertaining enough that adults won't 'accidentally' break or lose it after a few viewings!
The stop motion episodes are better than the newer cgi ones, but you can't fault any of them as far as kids entertainment goes

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic. Classic kids TV 13 Jan 2006
By A Customer
My one-year old loves this. Its the original TV series and is full of charm and fun. It makes me laugh and my son is captovated by it. Unlike the later series it has a Welsh flavour and is very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great! Perfect for the little ones 24 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
My 3 yr old LOVES LOVES LOVES this dvd. (His career goal has been "fireman" for over a year now.) I love stop-action animation anyway, and this series is another sweet Welsh addition to our collection. Personally, I find the new computer-generated animation much much too busy. This style is wonderful, and if I could get additional programs from the ORGINIAL series, I'd definitely purchase as many as they would bring out.

Great kid entertainment!

By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
The cover of this DVD is deceptive- it shows the puppet from the 2005 re-make of the series, but it contains a selection of episodes from the original series (filmed in the mid-80s- not the 70s as one of the other reviews says). The old episodes have a bit more 'rustic charm' about them with their one-man narration and jerky animation, rather than the heavily polished recent re-make, so bear in mind that young kids might now find the old series a little bit slow and uneventful if they're expecting the action sequences and drama of more recent kids TV.

Now they've brought out the complete set of all the old episodes, at a cost that's not too much more than the cost of this selection, then you might be better off buying the complete box set rather than this. After all, if the point is to get the kids to sit down and watch quietly for hours, then the more the merrier, as this disc runs out a bit too fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Fireman Sam 15 Aug 2011
This is a favourite DVD in our household and we all love Fireman Sam who is quite the loveable character. This DVD is a great babysitter when you're busy doing the household chores. He is almost like part of the family at this stage.
