A shadow has fallen on the shore of the Eastern sea, a shadow called Marshank. In this cold stone fortress a stoat named Badrang holds dozens of innocent creatures as slaves, part of his scheme to build an empire where he will rule as unquestioned tyrant. Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom - freedom not only for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims. There is no risk he will not take, no battle he will not fight, to end the stoats evil reign, and in the process regain the sword of his father, Luke the Warrior - the sword that Badrang stole from him long ago.

Martin's love interest in this story is the heroine Rose of Noonvale. Her full name is Laterose. The first season of Redwall (which takes place hundreds of years after Martin the Warrior) is set in the summer of the Late Rose. See more »
A great show for Redwall fans and casual viewers alike.
This show is surprisingly (and beneficially) complex for something made for children. It has a great plot that branches off in several directions as it follows the adventures of different characters, and it all comes back together in the end. The excellent story is filled with memorable characters and harrowing adventures, all designed for the younger crowd. If you are a fan of the Redwall books, occasionally there will be a little "easter egg" just for you to pick up, and you will appreciate the show's loyalty to the original text. If you are tired of nothing but Japanimation or the same old Loony Toons, here is a 'toon that will grab you from start to finish.
