Fop the very first time on video, join Postman Pat' and his trusty sidekick Jess the Black and White Cat in over 3 hours of digitally enhanced episodes from the complete 1980s original TV series. After a heretic morning, Pat's settling down to a picnic lunch and a little snooze. Then Mrs Thompson's "magpie" hen spots Pat's shiny post van keys...what will happen? It's been wild and windy in Greendale and some of the telephone lines are down. So when an urgent message comes through for the Reverend...it's up to Pat to save the day!
This is the original stop animation Postman Pat episoes voiced by Ken Barrie. Chances are if you're over 30 these will be the episodes that you remember, the ones with the weather wreaking havoc in Greendale, the broken water pump, sheep on the loose. I prefer these episodes, there's some magic in the way they are animated and I appreciate how long this must have taken compared to today where you build the characters in 3D software and it's much quicker to produce episodes. Great to show kids nowadays the work that went into creating the old Postman Pat animations.
