To praise the afore mentioned TV-series.
18 February 1999 | by MayhapsItWasGoodBackThenSee all my reviews

Since there wasn't a single comment about this marvelous TV-series, I thought to share some of my thoughts about it. For the record: I'm not 6 years old anymore (sadly...), so please try to see my views expressed here in that perspective. ;) This show is not running in Finland anymore (doubt if anywhere?) and unfortunately I too have no idea on what time period this series was made, or for how long it was on TV. But it's OLD I tell you that! But enough of that. I used to love this series when I was a little kid! I remember that at some point I actually wanted to be him... Or at least a postman anyways!

For all of you who don't know what this series was all about, I'm now going to tell it to you fair and square. The whole idea is simply based around the life of this well-mannered and witty English postman. He always comes across with these problems that seem to make the deliverance of mail hard or almost impossible! Eg. road block of some sort, flat tire, weather conditions etc. But being a smart man, he always finds a way, one way or another. By his own or with help of other characters in the series. I can't remember much about the other characters, just remember the good-old Pat and his way cool lorry!

The roads portrayed in the series are really really winding and tiny plus they're surrounded on both sides by stone walls. So, Pat must have both eyes on the road at all times when driving around with his lorry through the bumpy scenery! Though, somehow I have this image that Pat used to be quite easy-going fella all in all and he usually was a bit heavy on the gas, if you know what I mean? ;)

As far as I can recall the series was 'acted' by puppets, which probably gave it that great and funny look. And the jingle was unforgettable too! I would sing it here, if I only could... Heh! So, in short: Postman Pat is awesome. I recommend to all the kids and child-like adults! ;) Enjoy! (And drive carefully!)
