Based on a popular toy line, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors aired in syndication from 1985 through 1987. The central character, Jayce, traveled the universe searching for his scientist-father, Audric.
Audric, an agricultural genius, had developed a magical root capable of feeding the world, but the evil Sawboss had turned his creation against him. The mutated plant-creatures, known as the Monster Minds, worked under Sawboss' direction to spread evil across the cosmos. Jayce still held half of the magic root, and only by reuniting it with his father's half could peace be restored.
In his quest to battle the Monster Minds and find his father, Jayce was aided by a group of friends who re-formed a branch of the ancient Lightning League, dubbing themselves the Wheeled Warriors. This brave band of heroes included Gillian, the centuries-old wizard; Herc Stormsailer, the good natured, yet gruff pilot of the Space Barge; Oon, the robotic eternal squire; Flora, a literal flower child; and Brock, Flora's pet flying fish.
Armed with a magically powerful ring, a transforming vehicle called the Armed Force, and the courageous help of his friends, Jayce flew into battle for 65 syndicated episodes.
