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.

Trivia

The WHEELED WARRIORS toy line was already canceled by the time the first episode of this series appeared on television. The reason for the new story line appears to be that the people at DIC felt the original story line created by Mattel - that of the Lightning League battling the rampaging Monster Minds - would never work on TV (and they were right, too - that kind of violence was forbidden at that time).

The best of the classic 80s cartoons
22 January 2004 | by (Swansea, Wales) – See all my reviews

Anyone who is reading this review will no doubt have seen or at least heard about the cartoon so I won't go into depths about the plot. What i will say is that this is one of the best cartoons of the 80s and therefore one of the best ever as today's cartoons don't compare! What i remember most about J&WW is getting up at 6am to watch it. With all the action scenes, interesting characters and that immense theme tune it was not to be missed.

To anyone who has not seen J&WW I 100% recommend it. Its the reason i now have a huge chain-saw attached to my car!!
