The Epic Adventures Of Morph.

Morph, the clay character invented by Aardman Animations, is to return for a new series.

The Epic Adventures Of Morph will be available on the Sky Kids platform (which Sky and NOW TV customers can access on demand) from 9th November.

Ten episodes will initially be made available and, as the producers point out, with the series featuring "15-five minute episodes, it will be the longest season of Morph yet."

Sky says: "After almost 40 years apart, The Epic Adventures Of Morph will see Morph and his sidekick Chas reunited with their old friends Delilah, Grandmorph and the Very Small Creatures. Morph and the gang are up to their usual mischievous antics, but in bigger and bolder adventures that take them beyond their desktop home and into the wider world for the very first time.

"From Aardman's industry leading animators, The Epic Adventures Of Morph is fast-paced, action-packed and full of slapstick comedy moments - perfect for nostalgia lovers and families alike.

"Staying true to the original format, The Epic Adventures Of Morph was shot using clay and traditional stop-frame animation without dialogue at Morph's original home, the Aardman studios in Bristol."

Lucy Murphy from Sky Kids says: "Morph has been bringing a bit of cheeky fun to our screens for decades and in these times of uncertainty the clay genius of The Epic Adventures Of Morph is the perfect way for families to watch and laugh together with longer episodes of ever more inventive and exciting escapades."

Director Merlin Crossingham comments: "My fantastic team at Aardman have tackled some serious challenges since the pandemic hit half way through production. They rose to the challenge with skill and professionalism, putting their hearts into creating this latest series of Morph. More impressive still is the fact that this is our biggest and most ambitious series yet. I am very proud of them all and am delighted that The Epic Adventures Of Morph can now be premiered on Sky Kids."
