THEY REALLY needn’t have bothered. As a training sop for junior animators and a stopgap in VISION ON between Tone’s New York skyline murals done with paint rollers with bits cut out, the antics of this shape-shifting blob of plasticine bloke thing were OKish. Laden with a story and a can’t-be-arsed narration from the boy Hart, it was a thunderously so-so entry in the 5.35 canon. Those supporting characters in full: laid-back “cool dude” Chas, amiable lummox Gillespie, old bloke with beard Grandmorph, a woman called Delilah who looked just like Morph but with hair and specs, and a girl made out of tin foil, called Foily, imaginatively. Oh, and there was a scrubbing brush masquerading as a dog, some kind of alien thing, and loads of little blobs of plasticine. Er. Lengthy BLUE PETER features on How They Did The Voice (they speeded up the tape!) did little to galvanise interest. Nasty miaowing-synth theme tune, too.
