The history of the Super Wings
The animated series of Super Wings was born from a collaboration between the animation studios of FunnyFlux Entertainment in South Korea, the Little Airplane Productions resident in the United States and the Chinese Qianqi Animation. The cartoon is aimed at an audience of children aged between 3 and 6 years, (but not only) because of its didactic and simple themes. The characters at least in their and the graphic part certainly draw inspiration from the animated film Disney Planes.
It is a group of robotic, talking and sentient (humanized) airplanes each with their own specific ability and characteristics, residing inside an airport. These transformers, which can become either planes, cars or bipedal robots if necessary, are recalled for their missions by Jimbo, a man who, through a console from the control tower, selects the Super Wings on the basis of the missions to be carried out. The main protagonist is Jett, a red and white airplane robot, responsible for delivering packages to be delivered to every corner of the world. Before leaving Jimbo prepares Jett by explaining the characteristics of the country where he will have to go, its customs and habits in the local language. This is a great way to teach children the first notions of geography, in fact in the cartoon Jimbo will display a map of the world, where he will indicate the geographical location of the city where Jett will have to go.
Whenever Jett delivers the package ordered by some child in the world, they involve him in a small problem concerning the object of the delivery. Jett alone cannot solve the problem, so he calls Commander Jimbo for help via a wrist video phone. Jimbo will then have to choose the most suitable Super Wings to solve that mission. Once arrived there, together with the collaboration of Jett, the Super Wings will be able to solve the problem and make the child happy.
