Pat Klifton’s postman from the small town Grindeyl is modest, polite and obliging. It so well performs the work that all clients adore it, and Pat hopes to get an annual premium, to take the wife and the son to Rome. However the new chief of Clifton cancels awards to postmen. He at all does not love live employees and dreams to replace them with robots. Angry Pat takes part in television competition of talents where among prizes there is a trip to Italy, and it submits jury and the audience the penetrating singing. While the postman which has become famous all over the country distributes interview and participates in a talk show, his boss substitutes Peta for a spiteful mechanical copy which carries parcels in time, but thus breaks the traffic regulation, rumples lawns, is rude to clients and takes down doors from loops.

The city of Grindeyl in which there lives Pat’s postman, is founded on the real village Longsleddeyl in Kumbry’s county in the northwest of England. Founder "Peta" John Kunliff lived some years in Kumbry, and it displayed it in the scenarios

The cartoon serial «Pat’s Postman» appeared on the British TV screens in 1981, and his header hero quickly became the general favourite. Unlike our Petchkin, only and able what to spy for little boys, red-haired four-eyes Pat carefully carried out the duties, with readiness helped neighbors farmers and lived in such cozy corner of England what, apparently, remained only in TV series. Still it often took with itself(himself) for work of the cat of Jess which helped it to deliver mail there where Pat could not get. It was one of those light and sincere shows which gradually teach kids to friendship, diligence and attention to people around. Even if it is only casual clients.

That hero at the same time postman and employee of private firm, not mistake. The British post company Royal Mail was privatized in 2013, and now the government possesses only 30 % of its actions

In the 1980th and 1990th Pat it was so popular that the British mail used it as the informal symbol, and the real postmen sometimes tried to be similar on Peta to impress children. In recent years, however, importance of mail fell every day, and the well-known postman had to change together with its profession. Therefore in 2008 when there was the last today a cartoon serial about Peta, the header hero was already an employee not the state mail, and a private delivery service. Dushevnosti in these series was less, and here – it is more than every possible gadgets, cars, helicopters and motorcycles. Toys – profitable business!

As you, possibly, guessed by words «the last today», the updated Pat did not get superpopularity, and in the new full-length 3D-animated film about the postman the protagonist changed once again. More precisely, events occurring to it changed.

At the very beginning of Pat’s picture, to greater pleasure of fans, delivers parcels and helps neighbors. But as soon as he learns that will not get a premium, the picture turns from good-natured history about the modest slogger into gloomy satire about ominous corporate plot and about a musical TV show where the leader inventively humiliates participants-neumekh (the animated film Britain parodies «Looks for talents» and Simon Kouell). Respectively, delivery of mail leaves on a background, and Pat is at first torn through «copper pipes», and then together with Jess battles to army of robopostmen and with a robocat who shoots from eyes laser beams.

The animated film culmination distinctly reminds «the Doctor Who», and it with an ulterior motive. The best Doctor of the last seasons of show David Tennant sounded in "Postman" artful, but the unlucky musical manager who tries to prevent to win Peta competition and hopes to push through in winners of the ward.

All this, in principle, is enough quickly and funny. But here the question – on whom the animated film is calculated? Especially in Russia where at «the Postman Peta» is not present fan audience? For adults and teenagers it is too children’s tape, silly and with deliberately simple computer graphics and animation (artists tried to recreate style television, doll "Peta"). For kids it too adult, with continuous conversations about awards, family disorders, corporate podsizhivaniye and other problems which дошколятам are not close. And it not that case when children can simply pay no attention to unclear remarks. Adult tricks make subject frame of a tape.

The main trouble new "Peta" that he does not learn to be on friendly terms and love. As soon as heroes of the animated film face with robo-Pety, they take up arms on the real postman and do not forgive him, yet do not learn that Pat villain was the robot. Unless friends and native so behave? There would be they good people, they would decide that their friend, the father and the husband went crazy because of the glory which have fallen upon it, and they would try to help it – somehow, but only without arranging it obstruction.
