Visionaries Title

Visionaries is set on the world of Prysmos, a world that used to be very technologically advanced, but then all the technology stopped working and they had to revert to a medieval way of life.

Two groups of knights, The Spectral Knights and The Darkling Lords, discovered a shrine on Iron Mountain where a wizard named Merklynn gave them magical powers in the form of animal totems and power staffs. The totems give them the power to transform into an animal for a short time, whilst the staffs provide a powerful spell - though the staffs have to be recharged after each use at the shrine.

Visionaries only had one series in 1987, comprising 13 24-minute episodes, produced by Sunbow Productions.

Some of the characters and vehicles had action figures released by Hasbro to accompany the series. These were quite popular as they contained holograms on the chest and in accompanying power staffs.

Theme Tune

Lyrics

Spoken:
It is a time when Magic
Is more powerful than Science
And only those who control the Magic,
Control destiny.

They are The Visionairies.

Visionairies,
Knights of the Magical Light.
Visionairies,
With Magical Powers they fight.

Powers of mind, strength, skill, 'n' speed.
Powers to accomplish the greatest of deeds.

Visionairies,
Knights of the Magical Light.
