A sweet indulgence from the past, 14 August 2003
Author: HyperPup from United States

Simply the one of the best animated series to ever be produced in the 80's. I still have a hard time deciding which is best Jayce or Galaxy Rangers, but for sake of this commentary Jayce. Its a shame this show is not being rerun on Cartoon Network or even in worldwide syndication like it was in the 80's, many children today could benefit from its tight and mature storytelling, its intriguing characters and beautiful animation. All of this not to be outdone by an equally powerful and rousing soundtrack (Which we need on CD). Like many cartoons of the 80's J&WW provided viewers with a sense of fair play in the storytelling department and why not with now acclaimed television writers like JMS (B5) having formerly written episodes. One could watch and really feel for the character's plight, thrill to the action and adventure and sense the emotion from every change in the overall journey of Jayce and crew and thankfully the departure from typical 80's fare is the fact that J&WW didn't nail you to a cross with preachy morality play dialog and the almost requisite after episode "factoid" or "FYI" spot. No, it was concise, and brilliant entertainment. The way entertainment should be. I have come to the news that DIC is currently planning an entertainment network of their own. I pray to God it becomes a basic staple of American households and if so that there is plenty of Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors on the schedule for mine and everyone's sake. Oh and if you are listening DIC and Mr. Heyward a DVD set of all 65 episodes would be so wonderful in lieu of seeing it again on your future network.
