Postman Pat and the Beast of Greendale is twelfth episode of the second series which was broadcast on the 5th September 1997. It was written by John Cunliffe.


A strange creature is on the loose all over Greendale. First it chewed up Pat's sandwiches, then Dorothy's carrots, then Granny Dryden's washing line, knocked over Miss Hubbard of her bike, then brakes Major Forbes flower pots and it makes a racket in the Village Church! Who can it be?
