Redwall Season Three Intro

Summary

In August 1999, a Redwall television series was produced by Nelvana, a Canadian animation studio. It spanned three seasons, the first based on Redwall, the second based on Mattimeo and the third based on Martin the Warrior. To date, production has officially ended. 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, 30 minutes with commercials.

The first episode aired September 12, 1999; the final episode was aired February 19, 2001.

The TV series first aired in the United States via PBS on April 1, 2001, and ended on July 28, 2002.

The soundtrack for the show was performed by the Czechoslovak State Orchestra.

In 2006, Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 became available on Region 1 DVD.

In late 2009, Nelvana signed an agreement with Phase 4 Films to manage their children's show DVD releases. Starting in 2010, the Redwall TV Series has been released by the KaBOOM! Entertainment Inc. division of Phase 4.

DVDs and VHS cassettes of the series have been released in many regions.

Differences From The Books

Redwall

  • When Cluny is driving the cart in the book, the sign says 15 miles. In the series, the sign says 10 miles.
  • The horse does not miss the turn in the book.
  • Time is measured in years instead of seasons, as Abbot Mortimer describes Matthias as having resided at the Abbey for 10 years, and being age 13.
  • During the final battle, Cluny the Scourge uses Cornflower as a hostage instead of Friar Hugo.
  • Basil Stag Hare, Jess Squirrel, and Matthias all go to rescue the tapestry. In the book, only Basil and Jess are involved.
  • Constance kills Fangburn by biting him. In the book, she smashes him against a wall several times.
  • Cornflower's role in the series is more active than in the book.
  • Matthias, after his expedition to learn about Asmodeus from Captain Snow, returns to the Abbey, and consequently, is present for some sequences he wasn't in the book (e.g. Constance's crossbow, the siege tower, etc).
  • In the books, Warbeak becomes queen following the death of King Bull, as her mother Dunwing wished. In the series, Dunwing becomes queen.
  • Matthias returns to Redwall from his expedition to retrieve the sword of Martin from Asmodeus. In the book, he returned as Cluny was seizing control of the Abbey. In order to have it more true to the book, a new scene is added in which Matthias, before Cluny begins to take over, goes off to recruit warriors.
  • Cluny attempts to starve the Redwallers in the series, but in the book, everything they needed for food was in the orchard, etc.
  • The Beaver does not appear in the TV series.
  • Ambrose Spike has a large role in the book, but in this season, all he does is perform magic tricks at the jubilee, and is later seen before the final battle.
  • Due to Ambrose's reduced role, the Vole family's capture is somewhat different than in the book. In the book, Colin Vole and his family are captured and Ambrose Spike is injured by Cluny's horde. The Redwall moles then go underground and manage to save Ambrose, who relates what happened. In the series, as the voles are captured, Colin's mother tells him to run to Redwall and tell what happened.
  • Sela is killed by Cluny's horde outside the gate, when in the book, she was executed at the camp.
  • The events of Cluny's Clowns, The Visitor, and A Favor Returned didn't occur in the book.
  • The characters Wild Ivy, Farlo, Glendel, Saffron, Dorthia, Jennie, Mighty Clodd, Myrtle, and Bigwing were not present in the book.
  • Silent Sam has a very small role in the series, but has a much larger role in the book.
  • John Churchmouse is Cornflower's father in the TV series. In the book, her father is Mr. Fieldmouse. This would make Cornflower Churchmouse an older sister to Tim and Tess Churchmouse in the 2nd season, which also makes the marriage of Mattimeo (Cornflower's son, and in the TV series, Tess' nephew) to Tess (and their offspring, Martin II especially) rather controversial.
  • In the TV series, the first time John Churchmouse appears is in the epilogue.
  • Abbot Mortimer takes part in the final battle against Cluny's horde, but in the book, he does not.
  • Cluny does not lash out at Mortimer in the series.
  • Redtooth was killed by Constance in the book when she threw him against a tree. In the TV series, he is killed when Cornflower spilled hot soup on him, but, oddly, is later seen running away from the siege tower (but is mentioned as being dead later).
  • Cornflower and Silent Sam find the armor of Martin the Warrior in the attic. In the book, it is hidden beneath the Abbey.
  • A little shrewbabe promises to show Matthias a cut-off to Redwall Abbey, though the scene isn't in the book.
  • In the book, Methuselah dies shortly after he is beaten by Chickenhound. In the TV series, Methuselah does not die immediately, and dies a few days later in bed.
  • Nobody knew Basil when he first arrives at the Abbey in the TV series. In the book, when Basil arrives at Redwall, it is revealed that he was an old friend to the Abbey.
  • The Summer of the Talking Squirrel was not mentioned in the epilogue of the TV series.
  • The tapestry is much different in the book than in the television series. In the television series, the words "I am that is" are shown in plain sight on the tapestry, but in the book, they are etched in the wall behind the tapestry and the tapestry does not show the future battle with Cluny the Scourge as it does in the television series.
  • In the book, Cluny's horde tried to tunnel into Redwall only once, only to be stopped by boiling hot water. In the series, they tried to tunnel twice, the first of which they were foiled by porridge and the second time by water.
  • In the TV series, both Sela and Chickenhound went into Redwall, and Sela was later thrown out of Redwall for stealing (and her son for injuring Methuselah) and killed by Cluny almost immediately. In the book, Cluny unveils their spying and has them both executed, though Chickenhound survives and drags himself to Redwall.
  • In the book, Cornflower was not present when Matthias and Methuselah worked out the riddle behind the tapestry or went beneath the stairs to Martin's tomb as she was in the TV series.
  • In the TV series, the Guosim used regular swords, not rapiers, as they did in the book.
  • In the series, two mouse maids sew the tapestry back into place. In the book, Methuselah stitches the ripped piece onto the tapestry.
  • Cluny sends out his press gangs both when he arrives at Redwall and near the final battle in the TV series. In the book, he only does it at his arrival.
  • In the TV series, Killconey spies on the Redwallers and finds out about their plan to assassinate Cluny. In the book, Killconey does no spying, whatsoever.
  • Killconey hires a magpie to help him spy on the Redwallers. The magpie also later acts as Cluny's pet, perching on his shoulder. In the book, there is no magpie.
  • In the book, when Cluny tries to infiltrate the Abbey using a plank, Constance simply kicks it off the wall, while in the TV series, she struggles to hold it up and Matthias helps her push it.
  • Skullface does not appear in the TV series, and is replaced by a random, unnamed rat.
  • Cluny pretends to be a weary traveler in order to first enter the Abbey, and is only accompanied by Redtooth and Darkclaw. In the book, he is backed by his horde and blatantly introduces himself to the Redwallers as Cluny the Scourge.
  • Darkclaw enters the Abbey with Cluny instead of Redtooth.
  • Cluny summons Shadow to him before he first enters Redwall, while in the book, he calls for Shadow after Cluny returns to his camp.
  • During the final battle, Cluny climbs up the bell tower, with Matthias following, before sliding down the bell rope to the floor. In the book, Matthias tries to escape Cluny by running up the tower, but Cluny never follows.
  • Scragg does not have as large a role in the TV series as he does in the book, and was shown as a rat instead of a weasel. Later, however, when Cluny was naming off his dead captains, he called him 'Scragg the weasel'.
  • It is revealed that Matthias saw Cluny as a child, when his hometown was pillaged. However, in the book, there is no mention of Matthias ever knowing of Cluny's existence before he arrived at Redwall.
  • Basil walked out with Matthias and Methuselah after he opened the door when it closed behind them. In the book, however, Matthias and Methuselah were able to open the door on their own and walked out of Martin's tomb alone.
  • In the series, Constance came with Matthias and Methuselah to the wall where they found the shield shaped carving. In the book, she arrived after they discovered it and told them about the shield.
  • In the series, the shield-shaped carving was covered by plants in which Constance removed. However, in the book, Foremole and his crew uncovered the rubble that was hiding it.
  • Matthias and Methuselah discovered the shield carving at daytime, not at night.
  • Killconey's death by Matthias's sword isn't shown in the series.
  • In the book, Darkclaw is killed by the boiling water. In the series, an unknown rat is killed instead, and Darkclaw is later seen before the final battle.
  • In the book, Frogblood tries to kill Matthias before the final battle. In the series, Matthias just points the sword at him threateningly.
  • A mouse tries to bring food to Redwall Abbey, but is killed by Cluny the Scourge. This scene doesn't happen in the book.

Mattimeo

  • In the book, Matthias embarks after Slagar wearing only his abbey robe, whereas in the TV series, he wears something more like a tunic.
  • In the book, it is Sister May who rescues Rollo from General Ironbeak, not Cornflower.
  • In the book, it is Sister May who tends to Stryk Redkite, not Cornflower.
  • When Stryk Redkite attacks General Ironbeak, Ironbeak's rooks suppress her before she breaks free and kills him. In the book, she killed him directly without any interruption.
  • In the book, Fleaback was a weasel and was one of the five weasels to be sent south by Matthias. However, in the television series, Fleaback is a stoat and he is pushed from the cliff by Slagar.
  • When Slagar tells Mattimeo his story in the television series, Threeclaws is present. In the book, only Mattimeo is there.
  • In the book, Slagar doesn't tell Mattimeo that he is Chickenhound. Instead, Mattimeo tells Sam Squirrel the information that Slagar gave to him and it is Sam Squirrel that reveals Slagar to be Chickenhound. In the TV series, Slagar directly tells Mattimeo that he is Chickenhound.
  • In the television series, Hairbelly and Wedgeback do not exist. The latter's death is altered so Fleaback dies by being pushed off the plateau.
  • In the book, Tim, Mattimeo and his friends beat Vitch after he lies and tells them their loved ones are dead; and the slavers have to use canes to physically pry them off of Vitch. In the television series, Mattimeo's gang advances on Vitch and prepares to beat him up, but Vitch turns and runs into Slagar. The slavers aren't involved in that scene.
  • Some of the Blackrobe Rats used axes in the series, while in the book, they only used spears.
  • Orlando pronounces his warcry "Euliaaa!", although it is spelled "Eulaliaaa" in the book.
  • The slavers tell the young captives that they're taking them to Malkariss and laugh mockingly; whereas in the book, the slavers have no idea where they are going, but when Slagar tells them, they are terrified.
  • Threeclaws uses a trident instead of a hook in the TV series.
  • In the book, both Cynthia and Jube are too afraid to cross the chasm, so they are blindfolded. In the series, only Cynthia is blindfolded.
  • Warbeak tells her Sparra that they are free to return to Redwall when they are near Matthias, but the sparrow warriors stay and prove their loyalty. This scene doesn't happen in the book.
  • In the novel, Warbeak is dead before Matthias finds her, but in the TV series, she talks to him before dying.
  • In the book, Vitch and Browntooth go into the water to search for the escaped Redwallers, but in the TV series, it is Vitch and Threeclaws who go into the water.
  • In the book, the Painted Ones are tree-rats, whereas in the TV series, they are lemurs.
  • In the book, when Matthias and the others are in the river, Orlando knocks Cheek into the water with his axe. In the TV series, Orlando just tips the raft over.
  • In the book, Log-a-Log is fatally wounded by a spear to his throat while he is fighting. However, in the TV series, he is wounded when he takes a spear in the back, thrown by Slagar and meant for Matthias.
  • In the series, Stryk kills Ironbeak above the grounds. In the book, Ironbeak doesn't even make it out of the abbey before Stryk kills him.
  • In the series, Cornflower, Constance, Winifred, Rollo, and Foremole go into the founder's place. In the book, Constance does not go, and a mole named Gaffer goes.
  • In the book, it is Gaffer who catches the slabs, not Foremole.
  • In the book, the hedgehogs attack Orlando by rolling themselves into balls and hurling themselves at him, whereas in the TV series, they attack him with staves.
  • In the book, Vitch used a willow cane and hit Mattimeo with it. In the TV series, he used a whip and did not hit Mattimeo.

Martin the Warrior

  • The TV series opens with Tim Churchmouse reading the story after the events of Mattimeo; whereas Aubretia tells them the story after the events of Mariel of Redwall in the book.
  • Laterose's death in the TV series is apparently caused by Badrang the Tyrant stabbing her. However, she was thrown against a wall in the book.
  • In the TV series, Luke leaves to fight Badrang. In the book, Luke leaves to fight Vilu Daskar.
  • Pallum was male in the book, but is female in the television series.
  • Skalrag was tickle tortured after he proved himself disloyal to Badrang, which lead to his death when dangling above Marshank's gates. However, in the book, Skalrag was tortured by stretching on a torture rack and then killed above the gates of Marshank by being used for target practice for poison tipped arrows.
  • Felldoh beat Badrang with a javelin and slew twenty vermin soldiers in the book before he was killed. In the television series, Felldoh didn't beat Badrang. Instead, he took the Sword of Martin from Badrang and pointed it at him. He also died without killing any of Badrang's soldiers.
  • Pallum goes with Martin and Rose to save Grumm from the bees. However, in the book, he stayed behind.
  • Boldred's family doesn't appear in the television series.
  • Badrang's death in the television series is caused by him falling on Martin's sword. In the book, Martin and Badrang fought over the sword and Martin stabbed him.
  • Dinjer doesn't hit Martin after the warrior had rescued him from the nest of the gannet.
  • In the series, Keyla panicked when the tunnel caves in, but in the book, Keyla actually was the only one who does not react with fear, but rather snaps in anger.
  • Wulpp never figured out that Brome was really a mouse in the book.
  • The tree felling scene in the book is not in the series.
  • Aggril does not appear in the television series.
  • In the TV series, Martin and Rose confess their love for each other, although this was never done in the book.
  • Martin leaves his sword behind in the TV series, while in the book, he takes it with him, vowing to one day hang it up.
  • When Boldred attacks the Gawtrybe in the book, she grabs a few of them by their tails and drops them before catching them again. In the TV series, however, she makes no means of catching them, thus presumably killing the squirrels.
  • In the book, the Warden eats the lizards, instead of throwing them in the river as he does in the series.
  • The Player's performance is shortened in the series.
  • In the series, Druwp grabs Barkjon and is about to murder him when Felldoh kills him. In the book, Druwp never does this and Felldoh kills him as he tries to escape.
  • In the book, Crosstooth is killed when Martin stabs him. In the series, Amballa and Martin throw him off the wall into the pit.
  • Martin was overcome by merciful darkness after killing Badrang and holding on to Rose. In the series, he held to her for a time before rising and moving on.
