Superjail Season 3 is in full effect and the guys over at Animation Magazine had a chance to chat it up with the producers of the hit animated Adult Swim series. That said, after three seasons you would think that Stephen Warbrick and Christy Karacas would be absolutely thrilled with the overall reception of the series. I mean shit, I remember at LEAST a couple hundred people singing the “Cheeseburger” song last year at the 2011 NY Comic Con panel so there’s gotta be fans out there….right??
Animag: What kind of audience response have you had from the first two seasons, and how has that affected the show?
Warbrick: Every time I ask someone if they know the show the answer is pretty much “No” or “I don’t have cable” or “I don’t watch cartoons.” I usually get [feedback] through a friend who says, “I was sitting next to a kid on the plane the other day and his favorite show wasSuperjail,” or, “Some guy saw my SJ T-shirt and flipped out on the train the other day.” During production we are in such a box that we kinda forget that the show exists outside the studio walls.
Christy Karacas: I feel like people either love Superjail or hate Superjail. I don’t know many people who are like, “It’s okay.” That’s probably a good thing. The audience feedback/response doesn’t really affect the show though—things like money, time and network notes are what really affects the show.
