Jay Jay the Jet Plane - Billed as a place where "imagination takes
flight" the delightful animated children's series JAY JAY THE JET
PLANE debuted on The Learning Channel on November 2, 1998. It
followed the adventures of a perky and inquisitive six-year-old
jet plane named Jay Jay who lives in Tarrytown, USA, a rural
valley community surrounded by lush green meadows and snow-capped
Jay Jay interacted with his friends, Tracy the Jet
Plane, Old Oscar the Bi-Plane, Snuffy the Skywriter, Herky the
Helicopter, Big Jake the Prop Plane and Savannah the Supersonic
Jet as they carried passengers and cargo in and out of the small
but busy Tarrytown airport often flying over nearby Lightning Bug
Lake. When in need of guidance, the planes talked with the
cheerful airport mechanic, Brenda Blue.
The show's computer
generated cartoons are created by using face-tracking headgear
which match facial movements to the animation as well as perfect
lip-synchs. The miniature sets on the series were created by Emmy
award winner David Sharp.
The program was the brainchild of
successful Dallas-based businessman David Michel and brought to
television via Porchlight Entertainment and Modern Cartoons.
