Postman Pat and the Ice Cream Machine is the third episode of Postman Pat Season 3. It was written by Gillian Corderoy.


It is hot sunny day in Greendale and Ted Glen is making an ice cream machine for his picnic party at the workshop. Despite his best efforts to get it working, it keeps getting in a muddle. Meanwhile Julian, Meera and Bill are collecting more flavours for the ice cream and are also working on a brand new flavour for Jess.

  • At Thompson Ground, Meera's right eye brow is wonky.
  • The ice cream only splashes onto one side of P.C. Selby's helmet, but when he walks over to Pat and Ted, it is on both sides.
  • When Pat and Ted return to the workshop and look in on the ice cream machine, Ted has no eye brows. Ted's eye brows are also missing when he serves the sardine flavoured ice cream.
  • As Julian, Meera and Bill are heading for the workshop with the ice cream ingredients, they do not have the bananas, the chocolate and the walnuts with them.
  • When Julian, Meera and Bill are heading to the workshop, Julian is holding the basket of black currents, Meera has the cherries and Bill has the jar of sardines. However when they arrive at the workshop, Julian is holding the sardines, Meera has the black currents and Bill has the cherries.
  • On a hot day like this, the chocolate should have been kept in its wrapper until it was ready to be put into the ice cream machine.
  • When Julian, Meera and Bill arrive back at the workshop, they do not have the walnuts with them, but in the next shot Julian suddenly manages to bring them out from out of nowhere.
  • Julian, Meera and Bill decide to make banana and toffee flavoured ice cream first, but they do not have any toffee.
  • In a close up shot of Katy and Tom tucking into their ice cream, their eye brows suddenly appear out of nowhere.
