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 »

Mike Fox: [the Mayor is watching "Scared Straight" on TV] My name is Mike Foxx and I've lost thirteen of my own children - four to wind poisoning, two to sand rash, five to deadly crickets, and at least six to a mysterious drifter who looks and sounds like this guy:
Mysterious Drifter: This is the sound of my voice!
The Mayor: Oh, no!

Original animation with unmistakable adult swim style
17 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
