We gave it a C

The Morph Files: Volumes 1-3 are from the same English studio that produced the Oscar-winning Wallace and Gromit shorts, but these 10-minute skits (4 per volume) starring a chipmunk-voiced, clay-animated chap aren’t nearly as charming. Originally shown on the BBC in the early ’80s, they’re okay one at a time but breathlessly tiresome in bunches, and the juvenile, shaggy-dog plotlines continually reconstitute themselves as arbitrarily as the little figurines do. Skip ’em and wait for Aardman’s new Chicken Run movie. C
