Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Five episodes involving Greendale's favourite postman. In 'Pat's Windy Day', a tree is blocking the road and Pat has lost his hat. 'Pat's Tractor Express' sees Pat climbing aboard a tractor to deliver a registered letter, while in 'The Sheep in the Clover Field', Pat finds his hands full when he has to dodge some bulls and round up some sheep. 'Postman Pat and the Magpie Hen' finds Pat having a quiet picnic after a busy morning's work, and in 'Pat's Thirsty Day', a burst pump results in a thirsty postie. Handyman Ted Glenn to the rescue!

There have been some changes, however. For example, the animation has been greatly improved. The movement of the characters is much 'smoother' and the detail of the sets is more in-depth than before. As for storylines, there is a lot greater emphasis on Pat's homelife. For instance, there is loads of attention focused on Julian (Pat's son) and his friends. The plots of the two new episodes still retain that cosy, happy warm feeling and the modernisation that does occur is actually welcome (for example, the introduction of an Asian family to Greendale). Also, I'm glad to say, Jess is up to his old tricks.
Postman Pat is one of those rare shows for pre-schoolers that does not immediately bore adults thanks to it's wonderful animation, familiar characters and plot-lines ideal for a wet afternoon in front of the TV with the kids.
I prefer the man's voice doing all the characters' voices rather than the added female voice of later episodes.
The characters in the original series seemed more gentle and calm and quieter, and not so much manic rushing around as you get in today's Postman Pat with too many new characters as though the makers are trying to make it more 'modern' with lots of children and different ethnic groups in what looks like an obvious attempt to make it more 'politically correct'. - Not that there's anything wrong with different ethnic groups of course, but the original Postman Pat didn't have such a diversity probably because it was set (and still is meant to be) in a very small out of the way village or hamlet.
It's about time these original series were all put together on one DVD! I'd be one of the first to purchse if they did.
