Postman Pat in a Muddle is the third episode of the second series which was broadcast on 17th April 1997. This episode was written by John Cunliffe.


A huge parcel arrives at the Post Office and it squashes Pat's glasses after he puts them down on the counter. Mrs. Goggins lends Pat one of her old pairs of glasses. Pat still can't see properly, meaning he can't read or drive, so Ted offers to take him in his lorry.
