Storyline

Tom Peters has just moved to the small town of Jefferton, best known for its strip malls, buffet restaurants and run-down parks. Seeking to make a name for himself, Tom begins setting up meetings with the eccentric mayor of the town. Together, they develop a number of pointless ideas that never seem to go anywhere. Sometimes they seem to make things worse. Written by Civonos

Trivia

The show is based on a short film Tom Goes to the Mayor (2002) by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim which appeared in independent film festivals as well as on Tim and Eric's website. Tim and Eric sent copies of the short to a few of their favorite comedians including Bob Odenkirk who liked it so much he showed it to David Cross. Cross later made a cameo in the sequel Tom Goes to the Mayor Returns (2003). Odenkirk later worked with Tim and Eric to develop the short into a series. See more »

The Mayor: That's interesting, Tom. I just had a meeting with my TV about that. Let me hear your thoughts.
Tom Peters: Well, uh, child safety, uh, right... the first and, uh, last step is to establish a perimeter surrounding our, you know, parks and zoos and, uh, nurseries, and day-care centers, and elementary...

tons of haters, but don't let them turn you away
21 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

there's been a lot of comments on the how unfunny TGTTM is, and how it's a complete waste of time. But, to enjoy the show, you have to have an open mind when watching it. No, it's not going to be a "roll on the floor laughing" show, but it has its own droll type of humor. everything about the show, the dialogue, the characters, the animation (yes, which I happen to enjoy) is completely unique and enjoyable to watch. the sheer ignorance and childlike mannerisms of the mayor are enough to make the show funny, not to mention the off-the-wall dilemmas and hilarious guest appearances (Michael Ian Black, e.g.). If you're thinking about watching the show, don't let all of these negative reviews turn you away; you don't know if you'll like it until you watch it. At least give it a chance.
