Is Morph due a comeback?

News Louisa Mellor 8 Jul 2013 - 16:30

Aardman animation boss, Peter Lord, has been in meetings about Morph. Who'd like to see the return of Tony Hart's Plasticine pal?

Here's a bit of nostalgic cheer for a Monday afternoon.

We'll wager that more than a few of you grew up watching children's TV presenter Tony Hart interact with Morph, the Plasticine scamp who lives in a box of art supplies and speaks in a language of honks and word-imitating toots. Readers of a, er, lesser vintage may have met Morph on SmArt in the nineties.

Jog your memories with this short clip:

Morph's creator, Aardman's Peter Lord, asked his Twitter followers today if they thought Morph was due a comeback. Unsurprisingly, the first volley of response was overwhelmingly in the positive. Here's the message Lord sent:

"Just been having a meeting about Morph. Due for a comeback? He's up for it, I tell you."

Well if Morph's up for it, then so are we. The only question is, who could replace the wonderful Tony Hart as his human chum?
