— Snake's unlock message

Snake Jailbird is a non-premium character in the Villains collection. He is unlocked upon building Springfield Penitentiary.


Chester "Snake" Turley, or Snake Jailbird, also known as Professor Jailbird, Albert Knickerbocker Aloysius Snake, and Detention Bird, is a recidivist criminal, always getting arrested, but rarely appearing to stay in prison. He speaks with a "Valley Boy" accent. He is partial to fast cars and fast women, and has a knack for reckless abandon. In a documentary by Declan Desmond showing the pasts of several Springfield citizens, a 13-year-old Snake is called "Detention Bird" by a 16-year-old Clancy Wiggum. Snake referred to himself as "Professor Jailbird;" it was also revealed that he was formerly an idealistic Indiana Jones-type archaeologist, until Moe stole the Mayan gold coins that Snake had discovered and was going to donate to the museum, so he decided to take his revenge out on society (convenience stores). Snake also has a son named Jeremy. It is stated that Snake had previously spent time in a juvenile facility, suggesting he was a criminal before being an archaeologist.

  • Snake was supposed to be the criminal to be tapped, until Sideshow Bob was chosen for that part. He was then made controllable in the initial release of the game, but stills walk faster than the other characters.
  • He is the first character to have a job with a profane word in it.
  • Most of his visual tasks involve him robbing a building, though they all have the same animation: Snake standing in front of said building and pointing a gun at both sides, while beckoning for money.
