18th Nov: We've switched servers and will be updating the old code over the next couple months, meaning that several things might break. Please report issues here.
The Warden is The Cat in the HatOr rather, a reincarnation of him. Just listen to the voice. This would make Jared a reincarnation of the fish. Note their similar purposes. Jared is there to try and keep the Warden from going overboard but always fails. The Twins would be Thing One and Thing Two and maybe Alice and Jailbot are Sally and her brother seeing as they are both guards and it was the kids who ultimately capture Things 1 and 2.
Superjail is hell, and the Warden is the Devil.Well, let's see:
Superjail controls the passage of time within itself.Superjail loves the Warden, so it keeps the Warden young. When he leaves, imprisoned in Timejail, it speeds hundreds, if not thousands, of years into the future. Jared's aging in the real world would suggest that the Warden was gone for maybe ten or fifteen years, but inside Superjail, the prisoners evolved into a whole different species, which would have taken an extensive period of time. To Superjail, it seemed like the Warden was gone for a million years—so he was.
Superjail! takes place in the same universe as the Hitchhiker's Guide.You KNOW it makes sense, I shouldn't need to explain this one.
Superjail! takes place in the universe of Firefly.Because it has to be said too.
Superjail! takes place in the same universe as Dead Leaves.Dead Leaves is essentially Superjail, except in The Future rather than Twenty Minutes into the Future. It almost goes without saying.
Superjail! is in the center of the omiverse, and every universe leads to itSee the last three WMGs
Superjail is a jail in an alternate universe made to hold criminals from many different universesThis is an expansion to the above. Seeing how many fatalities there are per episode (and assuming that this stuff happens regularly) Superjail would have to have an impossibly large number of inmates at all times. This can only be possible if Superjail has criminals from other universes.
Superjail, as a jail, is really a front for the Warden's plans for world domination.
The warden is Willy Wonka.Gene Wilder-Willy Wonka decides that the time-and-space-warping effects of his candy factory would be perfect in holding prisoners. So he decides to expend his energy in expanding the place. Took about ten years. Used outside help in establishing it. We all know Willy was a little insane...who knows what ten years might do? And Jared is an Oompa Loompa with a skin diseases. And Jailbot is simply the Great Glass Elevator (both can go anywhere) with an A.I. shell. The twins are two of the kids who had been left behind in one of the disastrous tours.
The Warden is Edd from Ed, Edd n Eddy.
Superjail has only one true inmate: The warden
When the series finale comes around, Jacknife will not escape.
The series finale will take place around the funeral of Jacknife.
The Warden being more of a jerk to Jared in the later episodes of season 1 is the result of being frozen in "Cold-Blooded"Somehow his brain got slightly damaged when frozen and the time he thawed (presumebly by the Twins so they'd have something to do), he became more of a Jerk Ass because that was his attitude towards Jared in that ep and remained constant. It would explain why the Warden Took A Level In Jerk Ass (along with Alice and Jailbot) in "Terrordome" when in comparison to "Combaticus" they worked somewhat happily together.
Superjail takes place on Adventure Time EarthThey both have similar animation styles and similar metaphysical weirdness. At some point, the Warden will lose control and Superjail will go critical, causing the Apocalypse that takes place in Ooo's past. The giant chunk in the Earth is were Superjail was located when it exploded.
There is more than one Superjail, and more than one Ultraprison.In the "Ladies' Night" episode, the Warden mentions that Superjail is the largest prison "This side of Dimension 5612", a comment the Mistress dismisses as "cute". As guessed above, Superjail really does process inmates from multiple realities, and, as also guessed above, is itself its own reality, made specifically to house these dangerous criminals. In the trailer, there's even a single shot of a non-human inmate, perhaps processed in from one of these other realities. With the infinite multiverse to supply prisoners, this also allows for the routine mass die-offs of inmates.
The Warden is a TimelordI don't know HOW this hasn't been said yet.
The Docter is a prisonerThink about it how does what he do benefit superjail in anyway? He was taken their by Jailbot for his unethical expertments and Warden liked him so much he gave him a private lab so he could continute his mad creations, helping make superjail a more insane place. Also, during the staff talent show he didn't have an act he was conducting the orchestra.
Superjail is stagnating on prisonersThere hasn't been too many new prisoner arrivals in season three and the Warden loves to keep them as a sick version of a family as revealed in the latest episode. It could be taken as the outside world knows about the atrocities that happen in the jail and all the criminals tend to reform or go into white collar crime that make it hard to be found so they won't be sent there.
The Warden and/or Superjail can control who lives and who dies, or possibly just resurrect people.The show keeps decent continuity, but a lot of side characters, while never outright dying, survive some pretty gruesome things.
The Warden is a True Fae.Superjail is his Realm and the prisoners and staff are changelings. This is why Superjail is chaotic and inconsistent and the inmates and staff never stay dead. The Warden's so sociopathic because hes basically a Humanoid Abomination Jared is a Drudge, Alice is either a Wizened Soldier or a Bloodbrute (or even a Weisse Frau), Jailbot a Manikin, The Twins are either Telluric or Actors/Wisps of another Fae, The Doctor is a Chirurgeon, Jacknife is a Bloodbrute or a Troll, Gary is/was a Talespinner, Ash is a Fireheart, Lord Stingray is a Larcenist or a Shadowsoul (or a Water-Dweller) and Cancer is either a Treasured, a Muse or a Playmate. The Mistress is another true fae, with Ultraprison as her realm.
The Twins after "The Trouble with Triples" aren't the originals.It seemed like the plot was reset and Karacas seemed to hint that way, that it wasn't meant to be resolved but that the fan reaction made him believe they'd revisit it. Now, one obvious assumption is that the Twins managed to return home in some way. But if a fan wanted to throw in a further layer of mindscrew and play about with the already-loose continuity, there is this to consider: What if time passed differently on their planet than it did on Earth, and the ones that returned to Superjail weren't the originals at all, but the offspring of the Twins (who either actually became overlords and/or died off or disappeared in some way), or perhaps backup clones made to carry out business and fun back at the jail while they were away? One could probably hope it's not the canon case (lest it'd come off too "Simpsons", or even DC Comics' weird initial hamfisted attempt at explaining away the Black Canaries), but it's something to think about with the love of swerves and twists.
The Mistress' next lover?Christy Karacas tweeted "It depends who sleeps with her next" in response to a fan asking if Mistress would go back to her original persona in season 4, or continue her hippie lifestyle. This could be a joke that fans read a lot into, and of course, she could even take on another unexpected twist in her personality. But let's have some wild mass guesses go below:
Jacknife's female counterpartIn the obvious explanation, it's Rule of Funny and the chance to show a woman experiencing Jacknife's escapades. In a Wild Mass Guessing world, however:
Combaticus' returnThere was a podcast interview where Karacas stated he had an idea for bringing Combaticus back. While it's too early to say if Combaticus will be in season 4 or if whatever idea it was will get used there, there are all sorts of theories to wonder on this guy and how he might come back, in what sense and if it's really him.
The Warden's personality change in seasons 2 and 3When the timeline was reset or a new reality was created from the ashes of the old, the Time-Police or some other force gave the Warden a psychic lobotomy in order to decrease his potential of being omnicidal in the future (and to prevent a never-ending time loop). This lead to him being more of a Man Child than before, and as his time spent in his jail increases, his short-term memory, dependency on Jailbot, and childishness increase as he's content with being in his own loop. The Warden "growing up" more would mean potential disaster from the power he'd harness, even if he wouldn't try to conquer the world the same way as he did in that one future. Although, this plan also had failed in some ways as the Warden still can be capable of disaster on his own, whether intentional or from his own out of control imagination. This would also provide another layer on why it's no good for him to leave Superjail. If he were to actually mature or become more sadistic and knowing than he was in the pilot, with full knowledge of his capability, it could lead to some sort of takeover. With being content and pleased with just his jail and the status quo, he wants for nothing more (unlike the Mistress when she tried conquering it) but the excitement it supplies. And even if he were to try to leave, his incompetence makes for suffering outside of it anyway, ala "Vacation".
Superjail inmates are resurrectively immortalAside from constantly being killed and turning up alive and well in the next episode they are in, it should also be noted that Jared used to be a Superjail inmate before the Warden employed him and that some episodes like "Combaticus" and "Mayhem Donor" had Jared killed as a dark joke in spite of being one of the major characters. The lunch ladies seem to be the only ones other than Jared and the Superjail inmates known to have died and come back to life, but their resurrections are harder to explain because they are female and Superjail appears to only incarcerate male criminals. There is no definite explanation for why Superjail convicts would keep on dying and coming back to life, but supposedly either the Warden made them immortal so that he could have fun killing them and not get bored when all the inmates were dead or the Twins made it possible as one of their sadistic games. Going with the aforementioned discussion of Jared's deaths, it is likely that he was not killed at the end of "Burn, Stoolie, Burn" and that he may return in the upcoming fourth season. This theory could also explain why the serial killer inmate had a cameo in "Superjail Grand Prix" when he died at the end of his debut episode "Cold-Blooded".
Fatty (the fat perverted inmate) is Herbert in his younger years.Just listen to the voice. Oh, and with Herbert being a WWII pilot? His years in SJ take place after that.
Also, Jackknife is Beavis.They have the same grunts, the same hair, and the same love for booze and women.
A gender-swapped version of Cancer was cared for by the inmates of Ultraprison.His name was Leukemia (pronounced "LUKE-uh-MEE-uh").
