one of the best art programmes for kids
24 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Take Hart' was one of the forerunners of art programmes aimed at the younger generation (Rolf's Saturday Club and Art Attack followed). Tony Hart himself had been in TV in various shows for years before this series came into being, but this was his best.

Remember Morph (the little brown plasticine figure with big eyes who was always interrupting things and causing problems?) and his little friend Chad (like Morph but white not brown). And Mr Bennett the caretaker who always popped up at inopportune moments? And let's not forget the Gallery, which showcased children's art efforts to the tune of 'He Was Oh So Beautiful' (or did I dream that?).

Of course Tony Hart was an inventive artist too and a kindly and comforting presence for children's TV. In a era of loud presenters and raucous programming it is a good interlude in telly history to recall.
