Brian Jacques' Redwall was a Canadian-British animated TV series, produced by Nelvana and based on the popular Redwall book series by Brian Jacques. The show ran for three seasons from 1999 to 2002, and it featured 39 episodes. The show follows the story of the inhabitants of Redwall Abbey, a peaceful community of woodland animals situated near a riverbank. The abbey is home to mice, badgers, rabbits, and other animals, who live under the protection of the warrior mice known as the Redwallers.

The main protagonist of the show is Matthias, a young mouse who is determined to become a Redwaller himself someday. He is joined by many other characters, including his love interest Cornflower, the wise old badger Constance, and the abbey's brave leader, Abbot Mortimer.

Throughout the series, the community of Redwall Abbey is threatened by various villains, most notably Cluny the Scourge, a fierce rat who seeks to conquer the abbey and enslave its inhabitants. Other adversaries include the piratical weasel Captain Slagar, the treacherous ferret King Agarnu, and the evil wildcat Tsarmina.

The show's animation is clean and colorful, with well-designed characters and backgrounds that capture the natural beauty of the forest. The voice acting is also strong, with standout performances from Tyron Savage as Matthias and Alison Pill as Cornflower.

One of the strengths of Brian Jacques' Redwall is its attention to detail in the world-building. The show effectively creates a fully-realized society of animals, with complex customs, traditions, and hierarchies. The creators also do an excellent job of weaving in aspects of medieval European history and mythology, with the various animal factions evoking themes of chivalry, honor, and conquest.

In addition to its engaging characters and rich world-building, Brian Jacques' Redwall also features action-packed scenes of battle and adventure. The battles are well-choreographed and thrilling, but also avoided excessive violence or gore, making the show suitable for younger audiences.

Overall, Brian Jacques' Redwall is an excellent animated series that will delight viewers of all ages. It offers a compelling story, well-drawn characters, intricate world-building, and exciting adventure, all wrapped up in a charming, family-friendly package. Fans of the Redwall book series will also appreciate the show's faithful adaptation of the source material, while newcomers will enjoy being introduced to this fascinating world of animal society.
