The words to the theme song are: There's a power that comes from deep inside you/'Cause every day you're reaching for the light/And you know there's a long long way ahead of you/But when your wheels get you there/things will turn out right!/Just keep em' turning, don't stop 'em rolling, the fire is on/(Wheeled Warriors!)/Battle drums burning, a-wheels moving, Wheeled Warriors!/(Wheeled Warriors!)/Come take a chance, keep 'em turning, don't stop'em rolling, the fire is on!/(Wheeled Warriors!)/Come take a chance, keep em' turning, don't stop 'em rolling, the fire is on!

The Best Cartoon To Ever Hit The Airwaves, 20 January 2001
Author: Neo-26 from Illinois

It is a shame that this classic series only lived long enough for 65 episodes. It's an even bigger shame that it no longer airs on television, and cannot be found anywhere on video except Ebay. This show was a great mix of sci fi and fantasy. It had a very unique premise: Audric, a brillant scientist, accidentially creates a race of mutant plants, known as the Monster Minds, after trying to create a plant that would end all starvation. After the MM attack and take over his laboratory, Audric flees and works to find a way to destroy the Monster Minds, eventually developing two halves on a Magic Root, but before he could figure out a way to join the two halves, which would ultimately put an end to the Monster Minds, the MM strike once again, and Audric gives Oon, his Eternal Squire, one half of the root, and sends him to his son, Jayce. Doing this, it would prevent the Monster Minds from aquiring the two halves, and would give him more time to figure out a way to join the two. So, Oon is sent on his way, and Audric disappears with his half of the root. Once Jayce has the other half, he assembles The Lightning League, and begins his quest for the search of his father, and to put an end to the Monster Minds.

What more could you want in a show? A brilliant story line with great characters and lots of action and adventure. Plus, it has one of the best theme songs ever, and the show's animation was terrific for a mid-80's cartoon!
