NGC 2392 and NGC 5443 are two complex planetary nebulae where bipolar jets have been detected. We have carried out detailed long-slit spectroscopic studies of these two hebulae. In this work, results obtained for the bipolar jets are presented. In particular, their kinematical properties and excitation conditions have been deduced.
