Years after the siege of Redwall Abbey by Cluny the Scourge, Matthais and Cornflower have a hotheaded son named Mattimeo who dreams of succeeding his father as the Defender of the Abbey. Unknown to them, a malevolent fox called Slagar the Cruel is plotting a terrible revenge on Redwall. With his gang posing as entertainers, he renders the population of Redwall unconscious and kidnaps nearly all the children, including Mattimeo, to become slaves. When the adults of Redwall awaken, Matthais and his friends must undertake the despairingly difficult search for their children which will take all the skill, luck and allies they can muster. Meanwhile, Mattimeo and his comrades in chains must call upon inner resources they barely know they have in order to escape and otherwise frustrate the diabolical schemes of Slagar. Written by

I loved Redwall. It was by far Nelvanna's greatest television series since Little Bear with it's depiction of violence and has a complex story, beautiful music, and charming characters.
Mattimeo captures the magic that made the first season of the series so great, thus making this an excellent follow up.
The animation is so clean and pretty to look at. The characters are great and the humor is also pretty good. The main characters, Matthias, Cornflower, and Mattimeo are interesting, but I think that my favorite character so far is Slagar The Cruel. You can feel sorry for him when we see his disfigured face.
The voice acting is excellent with Tim Curry stealing the show for portraying Slagar so perfectly and the music is still as memorable as Redwall's. The action is also pretty damn good.
Overall, this is a great show that would always take people back to the medieval times.
