The Amazing Adventures of Morph is a British stop-motion clay animation television show created by Aardman Animations which ran from 1980 to 1981. It featured the character Morph and his cream-coloured best friend Chas.


The character of Morph first appeared on the children's art-themed TV show Take Hart with Tony Hart in 1977. This series served as a spin-off to Take Hart and a showcase for Morph. The character had become so popular that the BBC commissioned 26 5-min episodes featuring the character.


As well as Morph and his cream-coloured best friend Chas from previous appearances, the show incorporated various additional characters; Folly (a female tinfoil figure), Gillespie (large, blue and dim-witted), GrandMorph (an elderly grey-bearded version of Morph with a skateboard and a knack for inventing things), Delilah (a blonde female in a yellow dress and glasses who serves as a straight character) Nailbrush (a nailbrush dog), Gobbledygook (a green alien) and The Very Small Creatures. Early versions of Folly and Gillespie had previously made a brief appearance in Take Hart.
