M.A.S.K. stands for "Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand", a secret crime fighting organisation that uses special masks that give them extraordinary powers (as well as hiding their identities) and transforming vehicles to defeat V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network Of Mayhem).

Another production by DiC Enterprises (the animation by Japanese studios), with many of the same team that worked on Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors. Once again accompanied by a very successful toy range, produced by Kenner.

Sixty-five, 22-minute episodes were made in 1985 for the first series, with a second series of 10 episodes in 1986, making 75 episodes in total.
