Mischief-making Morph, the tiny clay man made famous by the late Tony Hart is returning to television this June on CBBC.



Morph first shot to fame on BBC1 kids’ show Take Hart in 1977, and made his last TV appearance 15 years ago. It’s Morph’s original creators, the world famous Aardman Studios, which are bringing him back to life in new episodes shot again in stop-frame animation with clay characters…



Peter Lord, Aardman co-founder and co-creator of Morph, said: “Both Morph and I are equally delighted that his latest adventures are back on the BBC. Although he’s been away for a while, I’m delighted to report that he’s as lively and full of fun as ever – and rather more youthful than his creators! It’s fantastic to see him back in his rightful home.”



Cheryl Taylor, controller of CBBC, said: “CBBC are delighted that Morph is back on our screens this year. His playful and curious persona has always been a delight and we know that viewers of all ages will welcome him with open arms.”
