{"title":"Jimbo and the Jetset","dateDebut":"1985","dateEnd":"1986","description":"Jimbo and the Jet Set (often shortened to simply Jimbo) was a British animated cartoon series in the 1980s, featuring the adventures of the eponymous Jimbo, a talking aeroplane. Created by Maddocks Cartoon Productions, it originally ran for 25 episodes between 1985 and 1986.\r\n\r\nThe proviso to the cartoon is that Jimbo was originally intended to be a Jumbo Jet, but his designer couldn't tell the difference between inches and centimetres, resulting in his diminutive size.\r\n\r\nThe television series featured various talking airport-type ground vehicles (Tommy Tow-Truck, Claude Catering, Amanda Baggage, Phil the Fuel Truck, Sammy Steps, etc), and Harry Helicopter. Other plane characters appear from time to time, such as Old Timer, a Vickers Wellington bomber who gets into the story while flying to or from an airshow. The story is based at a fictional \"London Airport\", under the command of an irate controller who frequently ends episodes screaming \"I want words with you, Jimbo!\".\r\n\r\nSome printed material and toy merchandise featured Gloria Gatwick, a female counterpart to Jimbo, but she did not appear in a speaking role within the TV episodes (save for one brief appearance in one episode, where she can be clearly seen from a top-viewed angle).\r\n\r\n+Credits\r\n\r\nCreated, Written and Produced by\r\n Peter Maddocks\r\nMusic\r\n Roger Greenaway, Gavin Greenaway\r\nSeries Animation by\r\n Clive Dawson, Julian Gibbs, Neil Salmon, William Mobberley\r\nBackgrounds\r\n Kevin Smith\r\nCamera\r\n Chris Williams\r\nEditing\r\n Keith Learner\r\nTrace & Paint\r\n Guy Maddocks, Vivienne Dempsey, Simon Maddocks\r\nDirected by\r\n Keith Learner\r\nJimbo Voice Over\r\n \"Chris P Chicken\" Chris Pollock ","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/e9761a1985249b8fd2a89f5480c00e6546977baac900bcd642332807b8285ed937518d\/image\/8b7_3b733e9b2f.jpg"}
