Jimbo and the Jet Set (sometimes referred to as 'Jimbo') was a cartoon about a jet plane called "Jimbo". Jimbo was a new plane built for London airport, but it was incorrectly built because the engineer mistook centimetres for inches so jimbo was only half the size he should have been. A lot of the voices were provided by the same people as the Family Ness. 25 episodes were made in total by Maddocks Cartoon Productions.
