In the pantheon of classic 80’s cartoons, there are many epic shows to remember but one of the best was Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors.
It was a show that had everything, Space travel? Check! Crazy machines? Check! Evil villain? Check! Epic continuing storyline? Check! Missing father? Check! Awesome 80’s Theme Tune? Double Check!!
All of these things turned out to be the perfect recipe for a genuinely epic cartoon that would have us all hooked for years to come.
So what was it all about?
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors told the story of Jayce, obviously, a teenager whose father Audric has gone missing. He is a member of the Lightning League, a crime-fighting force tasked with fighting the evil Monster Minds who threaten the Galaxy.
The other members of the Lightning League were Gillian, Jayce’s mentor who was an ancient Wizard and created the Lightning League vehicles. Flora, a being created by Auric and Gillian who can communicate with plants and sense the Monster Minds. Oon, an eternal squire who serves Jayce. Herc Stormsailor, a mercenary and former pirate who owns the ship they all travel on. Brock, a flying fish and the Zoggies who were three robot dogs that constantly chased Oon around.
