Super Jail

Super Jail may be the most twisted, effed-up shit Adult Swim ( has yet come up with. Which, if you are familiar with The Swim is saying something. It also happens to be my favorite cartoon at the moment.

The action, for the most part, takes place inside Superjail; a massive prison, home to hundreds of thousands of inmates which is situated inside an island volcano. The plot revolves around the perpetual scheming of a maniacally eccentric warden who also happens to own Superjail. Flanked by a big-headed sidekick, a muscle bound m2f transsexual named Alice and Jailbot- a robotic toaster looking prison guard who packs an absurd amount of firepower; the Warden is constantly cooking up sadistic ways to entertain himself at the expense of his prisoners, who without fail meet incredibly gruesome ends.

The animation is reminiscent of 90’s MTV animation a la Liquid Television and Oddities but in an intentional gratuitously violent way. So violent in fact that one is basically anesthetized within a few moments of watching.

But I’ll let you see for yourself.

Sunday nights at 11:45 on Cartoon Network
