Morph: Still Naughty at 40!

The Morph: Still Naughty at 40! exhibition at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway is now closed.

This exciting exhibition took place from 13th July to 29th October 2017 and celebrated all things Morph, as the beloved character marked 40 years since his creation by animation legends Peter Lord and David Sproxton.
Visitors delved into the world of Morph and Chas through a whole host of hands-on activities including an interactive green screen, a cinema showcasing some of the dynamic duo’s most legendary moments and Morph model-making. 
The real stars of the show were 20 Morph sculptures exclusively designed by Peter Lord for the exhibition. Each pint-sized sculpture depicted a cracking theme – some as a nod to Bristol’s heritage, and others just for pure enjoyment; like Morph dressed to impress in disco attire and re-imagined as a punk!

Co-creators of Morph and co-founders of Aardman, David Sproxton and Peter Lord said: 
“We never would have imagined 40 years ago that we’d have a big exhibition celebrating the world of Morph in his magnificent home city of Bristol. For a lot of people, Morph inspires real childhood nostalgia and yet he’s also moved with the times; Morph is a 21st century chap with his own emoji set, and has an emerging young fan base generated from his very own online series, so the exhibition really is for everyone. MegaMorph is really something else too, and seeing him tower over bystanders is something we’re really looking forward to while he makes his way around Bristol!"
