About Fireman Sam:
The initial idea of Sam the fireman came from two Kent ex-firemen namely Dave Jones and Dave Gingell. They came to Mike Young, the creator of Superted. He assisted them in the development of the concept of the toy.
The concept was then approached to Chris Grace, the Director of Animation of S4C. He saw the immense potential in the concept he licensed the series.
The storylines and characters where produced by Rob Lee, the illustrator who was Cardiff-based. The program was then created in a technique known as stop motion. Stop motion is used for the production of puppet animation.
Fireman Sam has been popular ever since its inception. It has even been translated in more than 25 languages, Mandarin included.
