Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors is a French American Japanese animated TV show which was first broadcast on September 16, 1985. It was produced by DIC Entertainment (originally distributed for syndication by SFM Entertainment) and animated by the Japanese animation studios Sunrise, Shaft, Studio Giants, Studio Look and Swan Production. The show, which ran for 65 thirty-minute episodes, was created to support Mattel's Wheeled Warriors toyline. The show had an ongoing plot which was left unresolved. The show featured two duelling forces. The heroes are humans called the Lightning League who drive white and silver vehicles with assorted weaponry led by a teenager named Jayce. The villains are organic plant-based creatures called the Monster Minds who travel via large green organic vines, which can grow in and across interstellar space, and sprout seeds that grow rapidly into further Monster Minds. They are led by the very first of the Monster Minds, Saw Boss.

Most of the episodes were written by the French writers Jean Chalopin and Haskell Barkin. Writers at DIC also included Larry DiTillio, Barbara Hambly and J. Michael Straczynski. Straczynski wrote about a quarter of the episodes attempting, in his words, to “hijack a dopey concept and make it into something more”. Haim Saban and Shuki Levy provided the music for the show. In the United Kingdom, the series was screened on Sunday mornings on Channel 4 and Sky Channel. In France, a French language version of the show titled Jayce et les Conquérants de la Lumière (lit. Jayce and the Conquerors of Light) was broadcast on Salut les p'tits loups !, a children's show on TF1, beginning on September 9, 1985. Its first showing in the United States was seven days later. Nearly a decade later, it was rerun on USA Network's USA Cartoon Express block from July 3, 1994 to August 25, 1995. No backstory was given with the toys for the Lightning League and the Monster Minds doing battle, and so distinct characters were created by DIC and Straczynski to allow for a structured story.
