"We’ve got lots of pictures of his on the walls and many of his books because he would come and work with the children at the school. When he was here for the opening, he did a lovely speech and he was very interested in talking to all of the children even though he was very ill." - Head teacher Heather Lee - Shamley Green Infant School. -

Tony Hart - 1925-2009

A group of people on Facebook are campaigning to have a memorial to Tony Hart established in Maidstone as a lasting tribute. It has so far been unconfirmed if this is to go ahead.

Although 'Morph' is often associated with Tony Hart, Morph is actually a product of Aardmann Productions and he was not created by Tony himself, even though the association is fairly universal.

It might be inappropriate therefore, to have a giant Morph (even if rather fun) as Tony did so much more than this, but we do strongly support the idea of a statue or other memorial to mark Tony's quiet influence on the world of art and his Maidstone roots.

Tony's biggest wish, above all, was that people continue to enjoy his programmes and that they don't become outdated. For the moment, we are not aware of any plans by the BBC to reshow any of Tony's programmes.
