I was listening to Radio 1 last week and Greg James was talking about the Fireman Sam character, Trevor Evans. This led me to spend the next half an hour watching Fireman Sam on YouTube. I’d forgotten quite how good the theme tune for that show was, so it got me thinking. What other great theme tunes from childhood are there?
This is obviously the original version of Fireman Sam. I am very against the modern CGI version. Fireman Sam was perfectly fine as it was. Anyway rant over. I still know the words to this musical masterpiece.
I mean this needs no introduction. It’s weird and wonderful. Much like myself.
Again, before this became a CGI mess. Bob the Builder had a great theme tune.
Greg James had this on his radio show a while back (don’t ask), and since then I do find myself singing the theme tune on a daily basis. DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOOOOO
Looking back this was a bizarre programme. And the fact this was VHS shows my age. But there was something special about this theme tune.
What kids TV did you watch? Let me know!
