Fireman Sam - To the Rescue!!

Fireman Sam is totally new to us over here. Fireman Sam airs on TV on the PBS Kids Sprout network and sadly our cable provider does not have Sprout as much as I complain about it on a regular basis, no luck yet.

Thats ok because Fireman Sam : To The Rescue is now available on DVD through Hit Entertainment, the same ones that bring us Bob the Builder. You know ironically Fireman Sam does remind me a bit of Bob but with a European twist. Fireman Sam is near and dear to our heart over here as Connor's dad is in school to be policeman, so public service is a big topic of discussion around here. Actually not to get up on my soap box but its one thing that you see lacking in a lot of children's programming. Though Bob really gets the message of teamwork across, helping your fellow man when sometimes you may be in danger yourself is not always a hot topic. Fireman Sam brings it to children in a way that is non intrusive, funny, and really entertaining. Plus its really a role model children can look up to.

Included on the DVD is five episodes of Fireman Sam to get you started. If your lucky enough to have the Sprout channel you can check him out there as well.

Fireman Sam : To The Rescue is available right now on Amazon!

Hit Entertainment has given us FIVE copies of Fireman Sam : To The Rescue to give away to our readers!

I really have always loved Red from Fraggle Rock thanks to her energy. We are also big Pingu fans here.

Thanks for the great giveaway :)

The question is "tell me which character from the Hit Entertainment DVDS is our favorite and why!" I guess since you talk so much about Bob the Builder, he is your favorite. Was there some other clue I missed?

As for my family's: Well, Penguins have been my favorite for years...so I love Pingu. My kids love Thomas and like many others.

Blessings to you and thank you for the opportunity!

I'm not sure I know why, but from Fireman Sam, Elvis is my favorite character. From Bob the Builder I like Scoop. Thanks for the contest. My 3 year old saw that I was entering this one and got very excited.

I watched the little video on fireman sam. I thought that it was really cute. I also thought the little boy that had his head stuck in the fence was funny. I would love my 2 year old dd to watch this show. I think that it would be great for her to understand what a fireman is and how he helps our community. At the 4th parade she was terrified of the firemen. I also played the little games on the website, they were really cute!

The fire truck is my favorite because my little grandson gets all excited when he watches it and he starts running around the room like he is one.

My favorite Firesam character has got to be Norman. He reminds me of my son Benjamin who although is not a ginger-haired boy, shares Norman adventure for life.

My son LOVES Fireman Sam. I didn't know the DVD's were available in the US market. He saw it somehow I think when we were in Thailand. I sing about "Fireman Jojo, the Hero Next Door" sometimes, based on the theme song.
Bob the Builder is our second favorite HIT star.
