My grandson loves this DVD and prefers it to the up to date Fireman Sam. Arrived on time and properly wrapped and in good condition

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

If this was a VHS tape then it would be in the bin as it would have been played too many times to work again. I have tried to wean my boy off this by putting other disks on but he keeps saying. I want fireman sam on. His favourite episode is the one with bellas cat. I blinkin hate that cat..... aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrggggg Im loosing the plot i can see the dvd in my mind now and that cat........... If you wanna keep your young one entertained then purchase this.......

I know it says 'classic original' on the front, but who reads words when there are pictures to tell you all you need to konw? Judged purely by the cover, you might assume it's a dvd of the newer Fireman Sam series. Beware small children who only like the newer series - it's actually the old series. Nice n'all but not if you were expecting the DVD to contain TV programmes with the characters on the front cover...

My son had one of these but he scratched it and was so upset I bought a replacement. Well worth the money to get the peace and quiet whilst he is engrossed in this dvd, ideal as a pre-bedtime slow down!

Lovely classic Fireman Sam in delightful stories.

At first I wasn't too sure about this dvd and I don't think my 3 year old was too as it is quite slow and the animation is quite primitive (what's with the children's massive feet and the felt hands?!!) but it really grows on you and my son is addicted to it! I love the fact that my son can enjoy something that was around when I was small too.
