For years I remember a TV show that I didn't like, and would only watch the opening credits. I remember it from primary school so it must have been on TV between 1989-1992 at least- it featured some sort of planet or futuristic world, where the enemies were machines, I remember a shot where there were soldier or tanks on a rocky outcrop and this machine, or tank or something was being hatched out, they seemed to be hatched out of weird globs- almost like a grape being squeezed out of its skin. I know it had a line of toys and was somewhat popular because all the boys at school always wanted to play. I would love if anyone could identify this TV show for me! I'm very sure it was American, although it played here in New Zealand.

This sounds very much like Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors to me (broadcast on Nickelodeon from 1989-1991). The villains are these plant-based, transformer-like vehicles that would drive around through space on giant vines. Check out this YouTube video of the shows intro and see if it rings any bells. There's also this video of one of the commercials for the Mattel toy line.

  • I was actually thinking about asking this but all I could remember were the vines through space

  • This looks even worse than Night Man.
