is a South Korean-Chinese-American animated series with an English dub distributed by Sprout
. The series is about an airplane/robot
named Jett whose task is to deliver packages to children around the world.
Super Wings provides examples of:
- Added Alliterative Appeal:
- Jett "I'm pumped for the president's pink palace" at start of Team Tango.
- Dizzy's "rescue rope" does a "power pull" while the upgrade does a "power pull plus"
- All-CGI Cartoon
- Alliterative Title: "Large Little Laddie" and "Team Tango".
- American Kirby Is Hardcore: The original theme song is a bright yet happy and cherry tune. The English theme song has a slightly harder rock flavor to it.
- Boyish Short Hair: Skye
- Catchphrase: LOTS
- Jett: Im Jett. On time, every time
- Also Jett: Jet speed!
- Dizzy: "Im Dizzy and Im rescue ready."
- Donny: Donny can-do
- Cool Uncle: Sky replaces hers in season 2.
- Genki Girl: Sky, her job could be a lot more sedentary if she wanted.
- Humongous Mecha: The Wings pilot these in the season 2 OP. The Wings themselves arguably count too, when they're in their robot modes.
- Heart Symbol: On Dizzy's arms.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Happens in "Think Big" when the 3 boys stay in their robot suits and change into humanoid form while Dizzy gets out of hers (leaving it in vehicle mode) to go aerial.
- In-Series Nickname: In "Tip of the Iceberg", Jett says "I got you, Diz" to Dizzy.
- Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: A non-animal example. Plenty of Sentient Vehicles are seen co-existing with humans.
- Non-Human Sidekick: Usually an animal native to the area is seen with the kid of the week, to tell more about the geographical area to the audience.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Dizzy the pink helicopter is a girl while 3 of the boys (Donnie, Jerome and Paul) are blue.
- Put on a Bus: Roy and Sammy
- Red Is Heroic: Jett
- Rhymes on a Dime:
- In "Tip of the Iceberg" (appropriately named first example since Jett rhymes every episode) "Tippy likes it nippy" and "take the stairs baby bears"
- The episode "Alp Help", where Dizzy uses "Reel of Steel" and Todd says "begin spin!"
- Robot Girl: Astra, Dizzy and Mira
- Sentient Vehicle: The Wings are all sentient aircraft (justified as they are Transforming Mecha). As well, many of the other vehicles (cars, boats etc.) featured in the series are sentient.
- Signing Off Catchphrase: Super Wings! We deliver! is said at the end of every episode by Jett and whichever Super Wing helped him in the episode.
- Spaceship Girl: Astra
- Super Drowning Skills: Every Wing except Mira.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Dizzy, one of the female Super Wings, aside from being pink, has noticeable eyelashes. Astra, another female Super Wing, has eyelashes and what looks like a curl of hair between her eyes.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Mira (Tomboy) and Dizzy (Girly Girl).
- Transforming Mecha: The Wings can shift into humanoid form, Transformers-style.
- Victory Pose: Astra is shown doing one in the season 2 end credits.
- World Tour: Not necessarily a "tour", but Jett travels to different places around the world and meets different kids there.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Sky does, and puts them to great use flying around on a hover board, doing knee bends and throwing high kicks every episode.
