Dear Postman Pat!

Postman Pat is one of the most popular children’s tv series ever. It was created by John Cunliffe in 1981 and is set in a fictitious British village called Greendale in Cumbria. The show follows the adventures of Pat Clifton, a postman who has a heart of gold. Pat is followed everywhere by his pet cat, Jess who is famously referred to as the black and white cat in the theme music.

Postman Pat initially concentrates on delivering his Royal Mail letters through the valley of Greendale, but he often becomes distracted by some issue involving one of the villagers and is relied upon to resolve their problems. In the end he manages to provide the best quality postal service.

Postman Pat portrays a gentle world, illustrating the life of a close-knit village community where family and strong values are important. Many new characters have joined the series since it began, including Postman Pat's wife, Sara, and his son, Julian. The action has also moved beyond Mrs Goggins and the Greendale Post Office, as there is also a local train station run by Ajay Bains and his family, and a vintage steam train called the Greendale Rocket, which travels into the neighbouring town of Pencaster.

Since 2008, Postman Pat joined the Special Delivery Service in Pencaster where he has helicopters and parachutes at his disposal as well as his trusty red van!

All the birds are singing, and the day is just beginning.
Pat feels he's a really happy man.
Everybody knows his bright red van, all his friends will smile as he waves to greet them,
Maybe, you can never be sure, there'll be knock (knock knock)
Ring (ring ring). Letters through your door. (Hee Hee).
