    Redwall Abbey is the monastic home to a band of warrior mice and forest folk,
    and its hallways and towers are rich with history and ancestory. Over the course
    of almost two dozen bestselling books, heroic critters and their descendants have
    fought in the name of the abbey, and roamed far and wide around its environs.
    They have endured hordes of rats, deadly otters and marauding wolverines,
    joined patrols of marching hares, encountered legendary warrior badgers,
    and more...

    Nelvana/Alphanim's lively adaptaions of the "Redwall" stories qualify for the
    Toonhound index by virtue of the creator and author of those original stories,
    Liverpool's Brian Jacques, and by the involvement of Telemagination, the
    third partner in this three-way co-production.

    Three series wer produced, each comprising of thirteen episodesand
    introduced by the author himself. In the first series the abbey folk must
    defend their home against the onslaught of Cluny the Scourge and his malevolent 
    horde. Series two is an adaptation of "The Story of Mattimeo", with Slagar the
    fox wreaking havoc on our heroes. "Martin the Warrior" rounds out the animated
    trilogy and pitches the titular mouse against Bedrang the stoat. It's worth
    noting that the three books they were based on do not actually run
    consecutively (they were the first, third and sixth published, respectively),
    but the "Redwall" books weave backwards and forwards in time, from title
    to title, allowing readers to explore at their leisure.
    Author Brian Jacques was a merchant sailor before he put pen to paper and
    created the bricks and mortar of the abbey. "Redwall" was published in 1986,
    to great acclaim. Jacques skilfully blends the vivid naturalism of Watership
    Down with the blood and thunder of medieval England. The ongoing series
    proved just as popular, with new titles published regularly and a host of
    spin-offs and tie-ins extending the fan experience, right up to the author's
    untimely death in February 2011.
This animated series captures something
    of the spirit of the books, although the swords have been dulled
    somewhat for television...
