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.
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.

The first couple of episodes of Tom were a little slow, but the show has been steadily improving. With the demise of Sealab, it becomes the second funniest show in the Adult Swim lineup, next to Robot Chicken. It has more than its share of catchphrases. It's difficult to watch for the first time because the show is so character based. But give it a try for a few episodes, and I think you'll start to come around. I've not yet seen Tim and Eric's webcomic, but Tom Goes to the Mayor has made me want to seek it out. The visual style of the show is very unusual, but not in a bad way. In fact, after a while it becomes remarkable when they switch to live action.
