User Reviews

Very funny, slightly nostalgic too.
8 January 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

For someone who has watched these for a long time, this brilliant series will probably give that person a great deal of nostalgia. Despite this, the Morph Files is an incredibly entertaining series, you can never become bored! Fun for the whole family!

Morph is a little red plasticine man, who lives with his brother Chas, as well as his friends and family. In each episode Morph and Chas have many adventures. Narrated by Neil Morrissey, this series will be a delight to anyone who enjoys plasticine humour!

The episodes, plots and personal ratings:

Babysitting: Morph and Chas try to make a baby who is being babysitted go to sleep. With a very funny bit at the beginning, this episode is exceedingly entertaining, although due to the only "all right" plot, it arguably is not quite the best. 8/10.

Skiing: Not as funny as some of the others, this Morph episode proves to have its moments and has its exciting, rather slapsticky moments, when Morph and Chas not only go skiing, but meet a Yeti! 8 and a half out of 10.

Gobbledeegook: With the main plot being Chas and Morph meeting an alien who likes to steal stuff, this Morph short also includes incredibly funny and clever funny parts not relevant to the plot. 9/10.

Doctor Morph: Featuring both Morph's friends and himself as a doctor, many people become ill in this also funny episode. Has entertaining funny bits, both to do and not to do with the plot. 8/10

The Dog Show: Very dog and animal orientated, this short is recommended particularly to anyone with a pet! Otherwise, this enjoyable short may not entertain others as much. It shows Morph's "nailbrush" being put in a dog show.

Exercising: Probably the episode with the best theme, Exercising is about Morph and Chas working out, after they realise how little weight they are losing and how much weight they are gaining. With brilliant gags and jokes, this Morph episode may just be the most entertaining of all! 9/10

Games: Despite including lots of jokes, this short falls slightly flat without a good plot line, which is what makes many other episodes in this series so good. Other people may prefer this method of just random things happening, but others who like plots in Morph will think otherwise. 7 and a half out of 10

The Film Show: Morph wants to go the cinema, but because he can't find anything to wear, his grandpa makes a film show for everyone. Unfortunately we don't see the cute happy Morph in this episode very much, but luckily this short is brought up quite a lot by the gags. 8/10

Gardening: When Morph goes off swimming, he decides to take up the hobby of gardening - which proves to have chaotic results! Anyone who enjoys gardening a lot will like this more than anyone else, otherwise an entertaining episode. 8/10

Mirrors: With a slightly weak plot, this Morph episode may entertain quite a few people, but not all that many others - as much as the other episodes in this series. Not only do Morph and Chas mess around with mirrors, but Morph becomes invisible! There is a fantastic "Duck Soup" mirror spoof featured as well! 7 and a half out of 10

Little Green: One of the cutest episodes, this introduces Little Green, a little green blob that can only take so much - and he'd taken it at least twice! Morph grows to like him eventually - despite being annoyed by him at first. With not all that many gags, this makes up with a cute short of friendship. 9/10.

Cowboys: Mainly for people who like cowboys, this will excite all children who pursuit the hobby of playing cowboys - even the grown-ups in this short play along! However, for the elder people, one may receive some nostalgia. 8/10

The Birthday Party: It's Morph's birthday and no-one else seems to know! What will Morph do? With not many jokes, this still has a cute plot and lets one relate to Morph like a friend. :-) 8/10

Enjoy "The Morph Files"!
