Western Animation: Jay Jay the Jet Plane
Jay Jay the Jet Plane is an American CGI/live-action children's television series based at the fictional Tarrytown Airport. It has about 60 episodes and it is aimed at ages 2-6. The characters are talking airplanes, a helicopter, some humans, and two talking ground vehicles. The episodes are commonly distributed in pairs, with one header sequence and one end credits for each pair, and each pair is 25 minutes long. Each episode contains one or more songs; each song tends to occur in one episode. Produced by John Semper, the series is intended to be educational and teach life and sometimes moral lessons to children (and sometimes also to parents).

While it sounds like a generally harmless, Edutainment Show, it has gained Periphery Hatedom and been accused of Accidental Nightmare Fuel due to it's portrayal of the planes: for some reason, they have large, CGI human faces.
