Aardman Animations co-founder Peter Lord has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring back Morph!
It's hard to believe it has been over 30 years since Morph first appeared on our TV screens as Tony Harts animated comic foil in 'Take Hart.' Morph went on to also star in 'Hart Beat,' 'Smart,' and 'The Amazing Adventures of Morph.' Now it's looking increasingly likely Morph will be making a much wanted return.
Aardman themselves have already fronted half of the capital to produce 12 new one-minute 'Morph' episodes and have turned to their fans in order to raise the additional £75,000 required. An added incentive for Peter and the Aardman team to turn to a crowd-funding platform like Kickstarter, is it enables them to engage with the fans in the development and production of the 12 new shorts. They're actively encouraging Morph fans to suggest their desires, ideas and gags in the comments section of the Kickstarter and the official Morph Facebook page.
We're all really excited about this becoming a reality and, Aardman having already raised the majority of the required funds just a few days into the campaign, it looks almost certain Morph will be back!
