Patreon Request: Redwall Animated Series Review

Patreon Request: Redwall Animated Series Review by theherooftomorrow

Originally a Patreon request by Garrett Castello. Dedicated to the memory of Brian Jacques.


  1. Oh man! I loved watching this series on PBS. Yes, it did air on PBS, but they aired it in the late afternoon/early evening. Probably for the best since the show is aimed towards older kids. Possibly even pre-teens. Also, it only lasted 3 seasons. Plus, it was one of those shows that aired every weekday. So you were done with a season in only 2 and a half weeks. After that, you were forced with reruns until the next season started.

    This created bigger problems when the second season started. You see, PBS showed all 13 episodes of the first season at once. Pretty much right when the 13th episode finished being made. However, when the 1st episode of the second season was done, they aired it immediately. Then, they aired the fourteen again before showing the 15th and 16th. You can guess how things went from there. This is why I prefer weekly airing as opposed to daily airing, especially if you only have so few episodes to work with.

    Despite the fact that I watched it many times, I never tired of it. It was even one of the shows that my little brother got to watch with me. We watched it so much, we found it quite surprising when it finally ended for good.

    In the end, this show is one that deserves to be on places like Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu and others. In fact, it deserved to get more episodes than it did. There's a lot that could have been adapted and they could have done well with it.

    In the end, I enjoyed what we got. It was really good. I just wish we got more in the end.

  2. Thank you for this hero. I loved this series as a kid, and never got to the full conclusion. I do remember Rose's death, and I felt it pretty hard. And now I feel it even more, knowing that it originated from a novel series, which had a passionate creator.
