Storyline

In a distant galaxy where magic and technology co-exist, Audric, a scientist, accidentally creates The Monster Minds, a race of mutated plant creatures that goes on a rampage and sets out to take over the universe. In a bid to correct the creation of The Monster Minds, Audric creates a plant called "The Magic Root" which will destroy The Monster Minds, but The Magic Root got split into two pieces and half of the magic root is given to Audric's son Jayce. Joined by a team of fighters known as "The Lightning League" led by a 1000-year-old wizard named Gillian, Jayce embarks on a desperate quest to find his father and put the two pieces of "The Magic Roots" together, which will destroy The Monster Minds and their evil leader, Sawboss, who will try and stop Jayce and Audric from destroying them and stop them from dominating the galaxy.

A cult show !!
9 June 2003 | by Sadako92See all my reviews

I remember it when it first aired on French TV in 1985. It was an instant success in France, and being crazy about animation, I became a fan at once. And apparently, I'm still a big fan, 18 years after, when I see that I can watch 8 episodes in a row every evening since I started to watch the newly released DVDs.

"Jayce and The Wheeled Warriors" (or "Jayce et les Conquérants de la Lumière" in French) has something unique that reminds me how great those collaborations between France, Japan and USA were at the time. Jean Chalopin had created "Ulysse 31" and this show was a coproduction between France and Japan; he also gave us "Les Mystérieuses Cités d'Or", another collaboration between France, Japan and USA, like "Jayce".. Those three shows were some of the best ever on TV, along with the best Japanese animated shows.

Back to Jayce.. The story was excellent, but what strikes me the most is the weird atmosphere, a mix between space opera and magic. In each episode we discover a new planet with new rules (those planets can be considered like different countries) and I must say that some scripts were particularly good, with thought-provoking ideas. I cannot forget also that the great appeal of the series are the characters : Jayce, Herc, Gillian, Flora, Oon. You soon get very attached to them and their personalities, thanks to the situations, dialogues and voice actors. I want to pay a tribute to Gilles Laurent who dubbed our hero Jayce in French, he is one of the best voice actors ever.

The vehicles also make this series special, and the Monster Minds are so funny. Each episode is a delight.

I think this series is so good that it should have a sequel.. Hey, Jean Chalopin, give us Jayce back, give us more magic !!
