Brian Jacques' Martin The Warrior: A Tale Of Redwall premiered in syndication in fall 2000. The series brings the characters and adventures of the magical world of Redwall Abbey to life. Based on the third of the best-selling Redwall series of books by author Brian Jacques, each half-hour episode introduces viewers to the mythical, medieval land populated by woodland creatures who embody the positive and endearing qualities of humor, companionship and courage. Matthias Mouse, Redwall's young hero, solves mysteries, survives fantastic ordeals and ventures on challenging quests to protect the honor of local townsfolk. When a rodent horde led by Cluny the Scourge, an evil one-eyed rat, declares war on peaceful Mossflower Woods, it is Matthias, an inept and insignificant novice monk, who answers the call to become the next great defender of Redwall.
