Morph Brings Aardman Style to Esquire

Aardman Animation’s original claymation star Morph is celebrating his 30th anniversary by becoming a fashion plate in the pages of the March edition of Esquire magazine.

Morph rose to fame through appearances on several British TV programs produced by Aardman and the late Tony Hart, who created the character in 1977.

The plasticine character’with his sidekick, Chazz’dons clothes for the first time in the pages of the magazine, wearing such labels as Burberry, Gucci and Prada. The clothes were recreated in miniature by Aardman animators, who spent eight weeks on the project.

Morph will also appear on the cover of a special limited edition of the magazine, which goes on sale Feb. 5.
