Product Description

Based on the classic novel of the same name, 1978's Watership Down is one of the most beloved animated films of all time and receives a sequel in this 1999 release featuring the voices of John Hurt and Richard Briers. Journey to Watership Down centers on a group of rabbits and their adventures as they search for a new place to call home. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

From the Back Cover

Based on the beloved bestseller by Richard Adams, this stunning animated series reunites composer Mike Batt Bright Eyes and the voice talents of John Hurt and Richard Briers from the classic 1978 feature film. It follows the heartwarming and "hare-raising" adventures of a small band of renegade rabbits, who leave their endangered dwelling to make their way across the English countryside, in search of a safe new home.

Venturing out in their pursuit of the promised land, Hazel (Ian Shaw) and the other rabbits face adventure and uncertainty while meeting some new friends along the way, one of who tells them of Watership Down. Rik Mayall (The Wind in the Willows, The Young Ones) is a misplaced seagull, Kehaar, and Golden Globe nominee Jane Horrocks (Little Voice) plays the streetwise -- but accident prone--field mouse named Hannah.

Although the Watership Down TV series was giving a hard time when it first began airing on TV, that was mearly because it was "different" from the beloved book and movie. Different does NOT mean bad! I actually became interested in the TV show long before I read the book. If you watch a few episodes you will realize that a deep and interesting storyline does exist. It complents and extends the book. The second season of the series featured better character animation though roughened up designs. The first season was a touch "lighter" than the second, though both are amazing, and can be enjoyed by EVERYONE.
I am 19 years old and clearly I love this "kids" series. My mother, who hates animation, enjoys it as well. I have recorded every single episode to ever air in Canada and could not be more pleased that it is being released on this side of the ocean (many Watership Down products are/were available throughout Europe. It was quite big in Germany).
I can only hope that they release every episode and not just the "best of" (as was done in Germany and I believe the UK as well), because it is a flowing series. There are very few stand-alone episodes. Still though, anything is better than nothing :)

I first watched the Watership Down TV series when it aired in the UK in 2000 to 2001. At the time I was more drawn to the "fluffy bunny" genre, but now I realise the large amount of British celebrities who lent their voices to the characters. Some may find it distracting, but I enjoyed listening.

The story, in case you didn't already know, is about a group of rabbits travelling accross the English countryside, led by a vision, to reach a safe haven in "the high, lonely hills". The journey is perilous enough, and when they arrive, there are a few unexpected surprises...

In this day and age, almost all kid's programs seem to be computer animated, but Watership Down opted for traditional, hand-drawn animation, and the results are very pleasing, with bright colours, and some truly fanatstic animation in spots.

The story brings this down to four stars though. The original Watership Down (the book and the film) was painfully frightening and sad, a little funny, and very, very touching. But the stories have been altered and re-written with a young audience in mind (7 - 13 yr olds). Yes, it results in some pleasant, disney-esque animation replacing the dull, inconsistent browns of the film, but the storyline suffers. Not much blood appears for the first ten episodes, and the more frightening scenes, such as when one rabbit is caught in a snare, are toned down so much that the original brutality is lost. I'm not in favour of rabbit abuse or anything, I just think that keeping the scary scenes the way they were meant to be would have carried a stronger message. Also, the smallest rabbit, Pipkin, has been changed from just small in size in the original story, to being a BABY in the series.
