Well, that was weird.
Superjail! is a surreal animated show in the tradition of "Ren & Stimpy" and various others. It is quite an interesting concept. The jail itself is located inside a volcano, in which the fabric of reality changes at the whim of the eccentric Warden character (or rather, at the whim of the animators).
It's definitely not for everyone. The pilot episode is an in-your-face psychedelic extravaganza, and certainly a lot to take in. The main storyline involves The Warden ordering new uniforms for his inmates, which are intended to be bunny outfits. However, two interfering characters known as The Twins hack into the system and replace half the orders with wolf costumes.
In an effort to get his own back against the twins, The Warden shifts the fabric of reality in a way that results in complete chaos ...
Upon discovering that half of his inmates are dressed in wolf costumes and the other half in bunny costumes, resulting in obvious tensions and gang rivalry, The Warden summons a full moon.
This moon changes those inmates who are dressed in the wolf costume into real-life werewolves, and they chase the bunnies indoors. However, once they get inside they are transformed back into human form, but still dressed in the wolf costumes.
