5.0 out of 5 stars Morph is as Excellent as ever, 17 Feb 2007
This review is from: Morph: The Morph Files [DVD] (DVD)
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?
