Postman Pat is a British stop-motion animated children's television series first produced by Woodland Animations.

It is aimed at preschool-age children, and follows the adventures of Pat Clifton, a postman who works for Royal Mail postal service in the fictional village of Greendale (inspired by the real valley of Longsleddale near Kendal).

Postman Pat's first 13-episode series was screened on BBC One in 1981.John Cunliffe wrote the original treatment and scripts, and it was directed by animator Ivor Wood, who also worked on The Magic Roundabout, The Wombles, Paddington, and The Herbs. Following the success of the first series, four TV specials and a second series of 13 episodes were produced during the 1990s. Here, Pat had a family shown on screen for the first time (though his wife had been mentioned in a number of episodes). A new version of the series was produced by Cosgrove Hall Films from 2003, which expanded on many aspects of the original series.

The series ended on 29 March 2017 after 8 seasons and 12 specials.
