Redwall Wiki | Brian Jacques and Redwall Information

The Redwall animated television series, also known as Brian Jacques' Redwall, was a three season adaptation of Redwall, Mattimeo, and Martin the Warrior that was originally broadcast from 1999 until 2002.

Produced by Nelvana, a Canadian animation studio, the series airs re-runs on some PBS channels in the U.S., and occasionally airs on Teletoon in Canada. Each episode is around 22 minutes in length, or 30 minutes with commercials.

Brian Jacques introduced each PBS episode, which also closed with an educational featurette that offered a lesson on an aspect of the show. These featurettes were never included in DVD or home video releases.

The first Redwall TV series episode aired September 12, 1999; the final episode was aired February 19, 2001. The TV series aired the first episode in the U.S. on PBS on April 1, 2001. The series finale aired in the U.S. on July 28, 2002.

A fourth season was originally planned, however the show was canceled for a film adaptation that didn't happen.

Redwall TV Series Production & History

Production of the Redwall TV Series was led by creator, developer, and writer Steve Roberts. Brian Jacques consulted on story. It was officially greenlit by Nelvana in October 1998. At the time, Nelvana co-CEO Michael Hirsh stated "[Redwall] has all the elements of a medieval fairy tale."

Redwall was originally created by Cambridge Animation Systems' Animo software, which became property of Toon Boom Animation Inc. in 2009.

The production company for the Redwall TV series was Molitor Productions Ltd.

Originally, PBS declined to distribute the series over concerns of violence for younger audiences, however the target demographic was school-aged kids. Nelvana worked with American Public Television to distribute Redwall as a free program offer and achieved an approximate 70% carriage rate on PBS stations across the U.S.


There are three seasons of the Redwall TV. For more information on individual seasons and episodes, please see their articles:
