Here’s the first episode of the new Kickstarter-funded Morph series

Assuming you grew up in the 70s and/or 80s, your favourite claymation pal is back!

Back in the days before Aardman Animations was stacking up Oscars faster than you can say, “More cheese, Gromit?”, the Bristol-based studio was best known for Morph, the little plasticine guy who lived on Tony Hart’s desk and got into all sorts of lighthearted scrapes. Well, it’s been a while – but Morph’s back.

You may recall we reported last year on Aardman’s Kickstarter campaign to make a new 12-episode run of Morph’s show. The campaign was a success and today the first episode has been posted to YouTube. You can watch it below.

Look out for more new instalments in the coming weeks, claymation fans.

More after the break...
