This is a list of episodes of the television series Jay Jay the Jet Plane.

Episode consistency depends on the order: one episode says that the character Snuffy has not flown further away from Tarrytown than Lightning Bug Lake, but other episodes show him flying much further; in "Catch the Buzz" Snuffy still has not got rid of his original shyness, but in many other episodes he shows no sign of shyness.
