Morph is an animated Plasticine stop-motion character that appeared with the late Tony Hart, beginning in 1977, on several of his UK TV programmes, notably Take Hart and Hartbeat. Morph was produced for the BBC by Aardman Animations, later famous for Wallace and Gromit!

Morph's 30th Birthday was recently celebrated by creator Peter Lord and celebrity fan and comedian Phill Jupitus at events for the Encounters Film Festival in Bristol.

Morph appeared mainly in one minute 'shorts' interspersed throughout the show. These were connected to the main show by having Hart deliver a line or two to Morph who would reply in gobbledygook but with meaningful gestures. Later on, Morph was joined by cream-coloured Chas, who was much more badly behaved and cannot morph.

Morph lived in an artist's wooden pencil box, and he and Chas both loved to eat strawberry shortcakes, as seen in many of the shorts. Some of the early plasticine models of Morph were destroyed in a fire at the warehouse they were being stored at on 10 October 2005. Morph and Chas appeared in shorts on the British children's TV programme SMart from 1994 onwards. In March 2009, shortly after Hart's death, a flashmob of Morph characters was organised in London outside the Tate Modern art gallery.
