Obituary: Tony Hart

Yet another childhood hero of mine passes away.

I watched Hartbeat a lot as a kid and have some very fond memories of Tony Hart's artwork and his plasticine-animated sidekick, Morph who, as it turns out, was an early creation of Aardman Animation (of Wallace and Grommit fame).

Definitely someone who inspired any creativity I may now possess.

Thankyou, Mr. Hart.

  1. When I first heard Tony Hart had passed away he did not ring a bell. Then I saw Morph the plasticine side-kick and totally remember his show back in the day. It used to be on Swazi Tv in the 80s. Used to love that show.
