Should I Spend Donuts on Jeremy Jailbird and the Juvenile Correction Facility?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore!  Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults.  The soul of Springfield is on the line!   So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Jeremy Jailbird and the Juvenile Correction Facility to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pint-sized felon to your town…

Character: Jeremy Jailbird 
Juvenile Correction Facility
Donut Cost: 
150 Donuts
$500, 45xp/24hrs
Obedience +20
Other Info: 
Can be placed on the grass|pavement|dirt

Leaves stores February 20th

-Comes with a questline
-Will Help earn event prize currency (his questline AND task to Assault/Fortify the bases)
-Has one task at the Juvenile Correction Facility
-Correction Facility is animated when in use (spot light comes on and a kid escapes (climbs fence))

-Not voiced
-Pricey for who he is, but this has become the normal price for combos these days…
-Animated tasks are a bit underwhelming

Final Thought
Another kid for Springfield.  Same price point as all the others.  Jeremy has some fun story lines from the show (we talked about him a little bit in our Snake profile here).  Not a bad pickup.  So if you like the character grab him, otherwise pass.

This one is one of those “on the fence” purchases for me. Unless you have some connection to Jeremy I’d pass on him.  I’d rather see you pick up Wendell…or even Erik (both of their animations are better than Jeremy’s) for the 150 donuts.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player, I’ll be picking him up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Also, this is one of those items that will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you.  So try to make your final decision before this weekend…so that it’ll help you the most.

Here’s a look at his tasks…

Jeremy’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Play Stick-Em-Up With Water Pistol 1hr $105, 26xp Kwik-E-Mart
Throw Away Evidence 4hrs $260, 70xp Outside/Visual

Visit Daddy 12hrs $600, 150xp Springfield Police Station
Get Behavior Corrected Again 24hrs $1000, 225xp Juvenile Correction Facility

If you have Outlaw Snake, Jeremy will have a 3hr Visual task to Play with Outlaw Snake

*during event 4hr task pays out event currency.

  1. I like this character, but I’m not crazy about the building. How many prisons does one town need?!

  2. Jeremy Jailbird and the Juvenile Correction Facility – if I didn’t get Wendell? I would’ve gotten Jeremy Jailbird and the Juvenile Correction (I may earn enough Kem Farming to do so before the 20th). 150 Sprinkles isn’t bad and it’s better then what’s being offered in the Valentine’s Day Mystery Box for 60 Sprinkles (in my opinion). 👍

    Keep On Tapping / Happy Valentine’s Day 😀🍹

  3. During his 8-hour task to sell Con-Bears, I followed Jeremy to see where he would end up and I watched him walk…and walk…and walk (and keep on walking, right across the water) to the Prepper’s Compound. The building animation flared up for a moment and then Jeremy disappeared inside. I thought it was an interesting place for him to be selling his bears but then he came out moments later and I continued to follow him (for 45 minutes!) and he ended up at some really random residences that normally wouldn’t see any action! He sure took his time meandering around Springfield, taking several minutes to go from one place to another. Otto’s School Bus, Italian Villa, Kane Manor, New Bedlam Rest Home, Presidential Estate to name a few. And he found his way to Springfield Heights a couple of different times to visit Ultrahouse 2, Jay G’s Mansion, the Mountain Lodge, and Bob’s Victorian House. Apparently some people were more willing to buy a bear because he visited the Spinster City Apartments and the Gingerbread House twice each.

    After an hour and a half I went back in the game to check up on him. I found him visiting one of the Elf Homes and then Lincoln’s Cabin, Wolfcastle’s Mansion and then down to the Squidport to the Simpson Houseboat. He’s really leaving no stone unturned and trying his luck everywhere it seems! I just thought it was really interesting to see him visiting all these random houses (and boat). Especially places that you wouldn’t otherwise normally get to see animation for. Oh, and just now he was inside the Scandal-gate Hotel. I guess it’s not just residences he’s visiting. And clearly I have too much time on my hands to be following him around Springfield. Lol 😛

  4. He’s a mini Snake, … SO CUTE!!😊 Had to get him! Is it just me, or does anyone else think Outlaw Snake is kinda sexy looking in his black duds!??😜😜😁

  5. Jeremy is one of my favorite simpsons characters, he’s just so adorable. Might have to pick him up but also want to save for Valentine’s Day and act 3. Wish he had a task with regular snake though too

  6. Picked him up straight away. So far this event has brought me 5 premium characters, very happy. I’m completing his questline and completed Erik and Wendell’s in Act 1. Saving Greta and Leopold’s until the event is over 😊

  7. I have a full prison design and bought this immediately to expand that…..Jeremy was just an added bonus.

  8. “That’s my little dude!”

  9. I picked him up, I have a place where all the prisons are located, from minimum to maximum security and now juvenile detention center. In another subject, is the land expansion “error/glitch” going to be fixed? it’s second Act and I can’t get land with Cash…

  10. I Have no idea if this is event related or not but I just got a lard lad from my burns mystery box and a day or 2 later it’s fried. It’s now called ruined lard lad and it’s all broken down in my town and chief Wiggum has a task to place a wreath by it. Is this a normal thing?

  11. Is the JCF one big building or are the towers/gate/yard separate? It looks crowded how it is in the picture, but if you could move the pieces around and incorporate them into a larger jail area I’d be more inclined to buy it.

  12. Picked him up this morning. Since it looks like I may miss about four or five days of this act of the event, I’ve grabbed every event currency gathering premium I can, to try to “get it all” in time. I’ve come out several days ahead of the calendar quite a few times in the past, so I *might* succeed, without having to spend (more) donuts… we’ll see.

  13. The correction facility goes great with the junk base and you can easily incorporate the Springfield jail in there and fence it all in together. I put Marvin Monroe outside with his therapy stand in case there might be some daddy issues, and Otto is stoking up the train outside with his magic plants. Throw your zombie sandwich in the mix and it’s easy to replicate the prison from the walking dead series. (With a little garden and some graves out front, maybe the governors tank)

    The sizing of items continues to be an area of issue. The building sizes well next to Springfield penitentiary and that’s why I recommend placing them close by to each other. But if you put temple Beth or a larger building near it your stretching it. I believe they are starting to scale some things down because they are releasing more content and less land.

    The juevenile facility itself is very stylish, and the light is a great effect. Well polished building I’d buy it without the character even. The escaping kid is funny as well.

    Jeremy is not a great character but he adds to the kid population and has the best fighting animation of all the kids in my opinion. Except if he threw up on the appliance before heaving it that would be great!

  14. My only memory of him is when he stole a bike and said “look daddy im stealing” and snake wiped a tear from his eye saying “that’s my little dude”

  15. Has any changed with Snake’s tasks “Playing with Jeremy” where he carries his son on his shoulder around Springfield?

    • It’s Outlaw Snake…and the last is still there, but i believe it requires Jeremy now

      • I have Snake on his play with Jeremy task right now but I don’t have Jeremy. Looks the same as always so far.

        I wonder if it will be like The mom’s task of take Maggie for a walk – if I’m remembering right, the visual changed once Maggie was in my game. I think the storyline was that she had been carrying around a Maggie surrogate all that time.

        Hope they don’t take away Snake’s 4 hr task carrying Jeremy around on his shoulders for us cheapskates who didn’t pay the $150 to get the kid as a separate character. Are people really missing that task entirely if they don’t have Jeremy? Have I been spared only because I’ve kept Jeremy busy on that task for weeks?

  16. I miss my 4 hour task for Outlaw Snake

  17. I really like the building and another kid for my Springfield… I’m in ka-ching 🖒
