We know Prince George has his very own fire truck. And his dad Prince William has previously shared that one of the 4-year-old’s favorite shows is the U.K. animated hit Fireman Sam. Now the little prince is set for a cameo in the cartoon!

The series, which takes place at a fire station in a make-believe Welsh valleys village of Pontypandy, is celebrating its 30th anniversary on Friday. Producer Ian McCue revealed the surprise they have in store by way of tribute to their famous fan.

“We’re going to celebrate Fireman Sam‘s 30th anniversary by introducing a very special episode,” he said. “We heard that we have a very famous fan in Prince George, so we thought it would be really fun to bring a royal family to Pontypandy and see how the community reacts to that.”

Earlier this year, William, 35, told BBC Radio 1 that the show was at the top of George’s viewing list. “Fireman Sam has taken an awful lot of interest,” he said when visiting with wife Kate Middleton. He noted that while “George has gone past Peppa Pig stage,” his 2-year-old sister Charlotte “will probably be into Peppa Pig soon.”

And mom Kate, 35, bought her son a book from the series when she visited a thrift store run by one of her charities, East Anglia’s Chlidren’s Hospices in March 2016.

The Daily Express first reported the news about the special episode of the “much-loved hero next door,” as McCue calls his the firefighter.
