In 1999, an animated television series titled Rescue Heroes was released and was based on figurine toys from Fisher-Price. Rescue Heroes has aired on various TV stations, including CBS Kidshow, Kids' WB, Cartoon Network (2002-2004), Teletoon, Discovery Kids (2004-2006), Qubo (2009-present), YTV, and Vortexx (2012-present). In 2003 a movie that was based on the TV series was released, and it was titled Rescue Heroes: The Movie. The animated series strives to teach proper safety techniques and how to deal with issues such as bullying. Some episodes address safety skills beyond the capability of young children, such as extinguishing a grease fire. At the end of most episodes there would be safety tips, which would then usually conclude with the slogan Think like a Rescue Hero, think safe.
