Part of the Creator/AdultSwim lineup, ''Superjail!'' was a surrealistic and ''very'' [[{{Gorn}} gory]] comedy series about a magical jail and its deranged staff. The show takes place in the eponymous prison, built inside an extinct volcano inside an ''active'' volcano, and home to endless numbers of ultra-violent RedShirt prisoners. The series started in 2008 and lasted for four seasons.

* MauveShirt: Jacknife and the gay couple avoid death for pretty much every episode. In fact, the gay couple made up two of the 7 controls (Along with the Warden, Alice, Jailbot, Gary and Bird, and some unknown bearded inmate) of a Superjail {{Voltron}}-esque giant mecha in "Mayhem Donor".

** Some of the inmates qualify. When things start going to hell, many of them show all manner of skills, from lassoing bugs with giant shoelaces and discus-throwing that would make CaptainAmerica jealous to improvising weapons to deal with whatever mayhem is coming their way.

* AdobeFlash: The show was initially animated in a much earlier version of Flash (for the pilot and season 1), since the line quality was much better than the more recent versions. But they eventually had to switch over to the later versions by Adobe, and it was remarked that it was trickier to work with due to the different brushes and line quality.

* {{Gorn}}: Creator/AdultSwim has gone on record that Superjail has more deaths in one season than {{Metalocalypse}} did in its first two. In other words, it's pretty gory. Although after the switch to Titmouse (the studio behind Metalocalypse) for season 2, one of the criticisms was that it looked ''less'' gory.

* NegativeContinuity: Partly explained by the supernatural nature of the jail, otherwise the creators just say to consider the show like a M-rated version of ''LooneyTunes'' or like ''TheSimpsons''. Of course, there sometimes ''is'' some minor extent of continuity, seen in season 3, the season 2 cliffhanger that preceded it, and the season 4 premiere building off of season 3's own cliffhanger.
