Morph returns to children’s TV after 15 years

Published on: 21st May 2015

The new adventures of Morph will be broadcast on CBBC next month.

Morph-on-telly-wordpressOriginally created in 1977 by Aardman, Morph first appeared on the BBC Children’s art programme Take Hart alongside artist and presenter, Tony Hart.

Peter Lord, Aardman co-founder and co-creator of Morph, said: “I am delighted that his latest adventures are back on the BBC. Although he’s been away for a while, 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, added: “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.”

The new series launched in the summer after a successful Kickstarter campaign raised over £110,000 which part-funded 15 brand new one-minute episodes. The episodes, which have been released throughout the second half of 2014 on Morph’s very own YouTube channel, have been viewed by hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide.
