Sky Kids to Air New Morph Series

Aardman’s stop-frame animated comedy series The Epic Adventures of Morph is set to debut on Sky Kids this November.

After nearly 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. Staying true to the original format, the series was shot using clay and traditional stop-frame animation without dialogue at the Aardman studios in Bristol.

The first 10×5-minute episodes will be available on Sky Kids across all Sky platforms including Sky Q, Sky+, the Sky Kids App and the NOW TV Kids Pass from November 9.

Lucy Murphy, Sky’s director of kids’ content, said: “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.”

Merlin Crossingham, director of Morph, said: “My fantastic team at Aardman have tackled some serious challenges since the pandemic hit halfway 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.”
