Morph Comes to CBBC!
Great news for Morph fans – he’s coming to a TV screen near you! After the huge success of Morph’s comeback online you can now revisit his adventures on CBBC when they are broadcast on the channel in June!
It’s been over 15 years since Morph graced TV screens. The popular terracotta clay figure was created way back in 1977, making his first appearance on the BBC children’s art programme ‘Take Hart’, alongside artist and presenter Tony Hart. It wasn’t until a kickstarter campaign was launched in the autumn of 2013 that the first steps were taken in bringing Morph back into the public eye. The campaign was a huge success, raising over £110,000 to fund 15 new one-minute episodes, which have been warmly received by Morph fans both old and new.
If you missed them online, or you’d like to remind yourself what Morph gets up to in the new adventures – which feature storyline ideas by Morph’s Kickstarter backers – you can catch him and other favourite characters from the original show on the CBBC channel next month.
