Xavier is a faun-like wanderer/seeker who is traveling across the land to find out the truth about his mysterious origin. Facing rednecks, inflicting righteousness and preaching about the 'strong, silent types' and morality, this hero has his work cut out for him.
An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
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
Original animation with unmistakable adult swim style
Tom goes to the Mayor relates the saga of Tom Peters, a man who has countless of ideas to improve his new hometown, Jefferton, ideas that are repeatedly botched by the mayor of Jefferton(known only as the mayor).
I wasn't too enthusiastic about this show when it first came on, but the unique animation and the antics of the danger-t-himself-and-society mayor of Jefferton are growing on me. This show has traditional adult swim style, with crazy random comedic plots and the total ability to pull on the funny bone. The only problem I'm starting to have is feeling sorry for Tom, who starts out with ideas that are genuinely good but is constantly thwarted by the mayors stupidity, how many episodes can come out of this before it gets too tiring? But this is only the beginning, I don't have much fear that the creators will not fail to dazzle us in upcoming episodes. I have that much faith in adult swim cartoons.
