Show Summary:

Go Jetters go bigger as our plucky international heroes Xuli, Kyan, Lars and Foz, together with their disco-grooving mentor Ubercorn, discover lots more about our world. And we learn much more about each of the Go Jetters too.

Travelling from the top of the planet to the very bottom, their action-packed adventures take them to truly incredible places. And there’s a good chance Grandmaster Glitch has got there first to cause his usual chaos! Back at the high-tech Go Jet Academy, there are previously unseen areas to explore and extra gadgets to reveal - including zippy new hovering bikes - and we meet Tala, a cadet with a secret.


Meet the Team:

·         Xuli (purple and yellow) – The specialized Jet Pad pilot of the whole group, she’s responsible for transporting the team to every hidden corner of the globe – and then getting them out of sticky situations. She also makes sure to take a team selfie at the end of every successful mission.

·         Kyan (blue and orange) – The team’s sportiest personality, he’s known for nimble gymnastics moves and never sitting still.

·         Lars (red and white) – He takes pride in his skill at engineering and repairing tools, and of course for being the tallest Go Jetter of all.

·         Foz (light blue and yellow) – The brains of the group, he has a habit of talking in math lingo, and helps them when they run into questions along the way.

·         Ubercorn – With a burning passion for disco, the unicorn leader of the Go Jetters provides advice to battle against arch-enemy Grandmaster Glitch, and shares three fun facts about every new location the team visits.
