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 »

Quotes

The Mayor: [Tom is unconscious in a dumpster] Thomas! Tom-boy! Tom! Tom, are you okay?
Tom Peters: Oh, wow...
The Mayor: It's okay... I'm gonna hold up your head for you.
Tom Peters: ...think I hit my head... wh... where am I? What time is it?
The Mayor: Well... I've been keeping you in this dumpster for weeks now. Found this vest on a hobo and put it on you to keep you warm, 'cause you've been way too tender to move.
Tom Peters: Oh. Okay. What's that smell?

Truly Hilarious
3 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is absolutely hilarious. It has a very unique animation style. There are a ton of celebrity appearances (mostly due to Bob Odenkirk's connections). The story lines are funny and completely out there, but the funniest part by far are the expressions and positions of the characters, the Mayor most of all. The charts that Tom uses in his presentations make no sense whatsoever, and if you have TiVO, you should pause the show and read the graphs. Adult Swim has renewed it for a second season, and I think that they realize just how good this show could get. When Aqua Teens came out, no one liked it, but now it's one of AS's most popular shows. I hope that the same happens with TGTTM.
