Before Wallace and Gromit, before "Creature Comforts," there was Morph. As a child, I barely interpreted what was going on in his shorts as gingerbread men fighting; as an adult, I see the incredible genius in manipulating clay and adding speeded-up exclamations without specific words.

He's been going since I was three years old, and it's good to have him back. Even if this "update" still relies on that piece of equipment called a "record player" that will confuse the hell out of kids today (as it should; I mean jeez, the degree to which we had to be careful to get our music played properly back then was ridiculous).
