Postman Pat

Pat Clifton, otherwise known as Postman Pat, works for Royal Mail delivering letters around the little fictional town of Greendale, Yorkshire. He has a little red postal van, and his black and white cat, Jess, accompanies him wherever he goes.

Originally created and written by John Cunliffe and animated by Ivor Wood (under his production company Woodland Animations) in 1981 for the BBC, 13 episodes were made. 15 more episodes were made during the 90's, produced by HIT Entertainment. Then a few specials were produced in 2003, followed by two new series in 2004 and 2006. Cosgrove Hall provided the animation for the new series.

Postman Pat, Postman Pat,
Postman Pat and his black and white cat.

Early in the morning,
Just as day is dawning,
He picks up all the post bags in his van.

Postman Pat, Postman Pat,
Postman Pat and his black and white cat.

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, ring,
Letters through your door,
Hay hay,

Postman Pat, Postman Pat,
Postman Pat and his black and white cat.

All the birds are singing,
And the day is just beginning,
Pat feels he's a really happy man,
Pat feels he's a really happy man,
Pat feels he's a really happy man.
