Happy Birthday Pat – Review

16th September sees the Uk’s hardest working postman celebrate 30 years in the business. Postman Pat is the longest running animated TV series on the BBC, and still delights children and adults alike, just as much as he did when the show started in 1981.

To help celebrate this milestone a dvd of some of Pat’s classic episodes is being release on September 12th. Happy Birthday Pat is a very fitting tribute to the great Pat Clifton, with an excellent mix of old and new episodes. There are 8 episodes in all, including Postman Pat’s Great Big Party, Postman Pat and the Greendale Rocket, and my personal favourite Postman Pat takes the bus.

Also included in the pack is a cd with 15 tracks of Postman Pat Party tunes. Did you know there was a full length version of “what’s in his bag?”, the song that plays at the end of the show? Well there is and it’s on the CD, along with the Great Big Party song and he wonderful Greendale Knights song that always makes me laugh when I hear it.

The only thing that could have made the CD better would be to have had some of the original songs on there, especially seen as there are original episodes on the DVD. I would have really loved to have heard the Ted Glen “Leave it with me” song.

Watching the old episodes on Happy Birthday Pat was a real trip down memory lane for me, and a glimpse into times gone by for my young boys. A delightful dvd for all the family to enjoy together.

Happy Birthday Pat! Heres to another 30 years.
