For those of you who (like me) might mistakenly have thought that this was some sort of Morph compilation, this is actually a single complete series of Morph adventures, which is only the second series dedicated to Morph (and his plasticine/foil mates), the original one being "The Amazing Adventures of Morph", shown by the BBC in 1980/81. The Morph files was made in 1995 (which explains why it is narrated by Neil Morrissey, and why Morph and Chaz use a computer), but I've no idea on what TV channel(s) it was broadcast as it wasn't commissioned by the BBC, but by Universal Studios.

I am a bit wary of watching kids programmes that I loved as a child, in case the magic has diminished, but am delighted to say that Morph is just as fab as I remembered. Actually, this is one of the few kids TV programmes or films that I would gladly buy for myself without feeling a bit daft, because of a) the humour (especially the hilarious 'morph speak' - a bit like Mickey Mouse on helium, speeded up) and b) the brilliance of the creativity and imagination in it.

I can't think why the last reviewer thought Neil Morrissey's narration was so awful - I had no problem at all with it - it seemed perfectly acceptable. As for the reviewer "Scatman" questioning the "authenticity", it was directed by Peter Lord and David Sproxton, who founded Aardman Animations and who were the original creators of Morph. I reckon either Scatman didn't realize the series was created in 1995, or they just think everything has to be the same as before - why else have a problem with a computer being in it - it gave the show an interesting new dimension, and was used in an original and entertaining way.

Now can the BBC please please release "The Amazing Adventures of Morph" on DVD?

I love Morph but I urge you not to buy this DVD. Since when did Morph play computer games? Why is Neil Morrissey narrating? I was enticed into getting this DVD because I thought it included the classic 'Gobbledygook' episode. Watching it made me feel cheated as it is just a poor updated imitation of the original Morph we all know and love. I'm sure even people with tiny minds will question this versions authenticity. Must try harder. (P.S don't be fooled into buying the Flumps DVD because you think you enjoyed it when you were a nipper - it's rubbish)

This DVD is made up of 13 episodes that has a mixture of old classic Morph clips segued with new ones. It works OK in that sense, but as The Amazing Adventures of Morph existed without this footage I wonder if it was strictly necessary. (Trying to reach a new young generation?)

This does not have any of Tony Hart's original narration either which is also a shame for those who remember it with fondness like I do. But what really got to me after upgrading from VHS (you can get hold of this DVD very cheaply it would seem...) is that IT LOOKS LIKE THIS WAS A TRANSFER FROM ANALOGUE TAPE!

Morph is cool! But Neil Morrissey? Why?

Morph never needed narrating, that's the point. What next Harry Enfield narratiing Pingu?

The trouble is why Neil Morrissey? Yeah he did Bob the Builder but that over commercialised rubbish is staying well away from my little boy. Back in the good old days we had proper quality actors doing the voices, Willie Rushton in Trap Door, Bernard Cribbins in The Wombles, Arthur Lowe did Mr Men, Roy Kinnear did Bertha. Now what do we get? Neil Morrissey. Well great.

The nice thing about the good old days were the people narrating, dear old John Le Mesurier narrating Bod sounded like my grandad telling me a story. Neil Morrissey on the other hand comes across as a big infantile lout. Certainly not intelligent, cultured or kind.

Not that Morph even needs narrating in the first place. And if he did where's Tony Hart he's still alive and kicking. Kept a generation of kids happy and even if he is looking a bit past it now I'm sure his voice is still as calming and reassuring as it always was.

Excellent value for money, tons of episodes and totally hilarious. My kids (3 and 4) love it.

The only problem is the voiceover, what genius had the idea to add that? And who was the second genius that didn't add an option on the DVD to turn the voiceover off?

I bought this because the morph video I had from when I was small is sadly wearing out!... I bought this and it was such a disappointment. It is not the proper Tony Hart epidodes, the guy narrating is annoying, Morph is badly modelled and doesn't look right, and he's been horribly modernised so he now plays on the computer! And just to add insult to injury they keep playing clips from the old (proper!) episodes only with different narration and storylines!

In fairness kids may well like this... But if you're older than 4 and you're buying either for your own amusement or because you want your kids to enjoy what you did- don't, because it isn't the proper morph...
