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.
Derek Waters, Simon Helberg, and Bob Odenkirk created this show in 2005. There have been many different versions of it. First it was a pilot presentation, then it was made into a pilot for ... See full summary »
Tom Peters has just moved to the small town of Jefferton, best known for its strip malls, buffet restaurants and run-down parks.

Sometimes they seem to make things worse. Written by

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:
This is the sound of my voice!

I didn't expect much from a show called "Tom Goes to the Mayor" but after watching a few episodes I got hooked. This is one crazy show. Funny and downright sick sometimes, it's a great adult swim addition.
Why is it funny? Well, here's a look into a small town with a semi-clueless mayor (I say 'semi' because I think the mayor knows what he wants with his own agenda) and a do-gooder citizen Tom Peters who - doesn't have one of the best of home lives.
His (second) wife is a lazy cow, his kids are the worst step-children imaginable but here's Tom Peters - who's heart is in a good place - he wants to be a part of improving his town. But everything he brings to this mayor goes horribly wrong. Horribly. So why does he keep trying? Why doesn't he move? Why -- even when the mayor can't remember his name with all the things he's done with him! Why, indeed.
The mayor is mostly to blame for these disasters...but the mayor's council is just as clueless. A skewed view into local politics. And add in live action "married news team" which is one of the most weirdest couples around, you have "Jefferton".
A very dark humored adult show.
