Jay Jay the Jet Plane is an children’s television series based at the fictional Tarrytown Airport. It is aimed at ages 2-6. The characters are talking airplanes, a helicopter, some humans, and two talking ground vehicles. Each episode contains one or more songs; each song tends to occur in one episode. The series is intended to be educational and teach life and sometimes moral lessons to children.
Young plane charactersJay Jay. Male. 6 years old. Small blue and red jet airliner. Mary Kay Bergman was the first to provide his voice.
Tracy. Female. 6 years old. Small pink and yellow jet airliner. Normal hearing, but understands American Sign Language.
Snuffy. Male. 4 years old. Small green propeller monoplane. Is equipped for skywriting. In episode consistency (which depends on the order), one episode says that he has not flown further away from Tarrytown than Lightning Bug Lake, but other episodes show him flying much further; in “Catch the Buzz” Snuffy still has not got rid of his original shyness, but in many other episodes he shows no sign of shyness.
Herky. Male. 5 years old. Yellow and green helicopter. Has skids instead of wheels and cannot taxi on the ground. In the original series, he spoke with a stutter. In the CGI series, he rolls his “R”s whenever he speaks, and often pronounces stressed “er” as long vocalic “r” ([ɹ̩]), e.g. “I’m Herky” as [aɪm hɹ̩ːˈkǐ], with a strong high-rising pitch accent on the final “-y”.
