Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

Tom Goes to the Mayor is an American adult animated series created by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim for Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. [1] It premiered on November 14, 2004 and ended on September 25, 2006 with a total of 30 episodes.



Tom Goes to the Mayor began as a web cartoon on It was popular enough to get a web sequel, in which David Cross guest stars. [2] Bob Odenkirk noticed the show's potential, and began producing it for Adult Swim. [3]

Adult Swim has described Tom Goes to the Mayor as "one of the most polarizing shows" they have ever had, indicating that viewers "either love it or hate it." [4] [5]


Tom Peters (Tim Heidecker) has just moved to Jefferton, an unpleasant, rundown town filled with strip malls and buffets. Episodes usually focus on Tom going to the mayor (Eric Wareheim), hence the title of the show, with various ideas for business and civic endeavors, and the Mayor tweaks those ideas and causes them to backfire in horrible and destructive ways, leaving Tom to answer for them.

The show features a crude but distinctive limited animation style made by taking photos of the cast with different facial expressions and body language. The photos are then filtered using the "photocopy" image filter in Adobe Photoshop, resulting in the show's unique monochromatic blue and white images resembling Ditto machine copies. There are some live-action scenes, usually on a television set within the show. [6]

Many characters, segments, and content from Tom Goes to the Mayor have resurfaced in Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! , including the Channel 5 Married News Team, the Cinco Company, Gibbons, and even a live-action version of Tom Goes to the Mayor used as an opening for the episode "Pepperoni".

11"Bear Traps" Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Jack Black, Kyle Gass, Bob OdenkirkNovember 14, 2004 (2004-11-14)101
While the Mayor is watching a television program of Mike Foxx's Scared Safe, a show dubiously devoted to child safety, Tom pops by with some half-witted ideas about improving child safety. Somehow, the Mayor comes up with the perfect child-safety solution: bear traps. With the aid of the Bear Trap Brothers (played by Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D), Jefferton becomes the locale of the highest bear-trap-to-child ratio in the state.
22"WW Laserz"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob OdenkirkBob OdenkirkNovember 21, 2004 (2004-11-21)102
Flush with a chest full of World War II memorabilia he bought from the online auction site Webuy, Tom pitches an idea for a theme restaurant to the Mayor, who happens to have a grant from the city council for $300,000 for a historical project previously slated for a live monkey encased in an eclair covered with delicious chocolate-flavored sauce. Unfortunately for Tom, the Mayor insists his nephew Terry assist him in his efforts. Terry is actually in his late 20s, but because of his addiction to an inhaler, he looks, sounds, and behaves like a 12-year-old. Tom and Terry have creative differences, and the resulting restaurant (WW Lazerz) turns out to be a mockery of Tom's ideas.
33"Pioneer Island"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Patton Oswalt, Bob OdenkirkDecember 5, 2004 (2004-12-05)103
Inspired by a TV commercial, the Mayor decides to resurrect the Jefferton theme park Pioneer Island, which burned to the ground many years ago amid mysterious circumstances. To celebrate the re-opening of the park, the Mayor launches a week-long "pioneer time" to the town. With Tom as his point man, the Mayor shuts off the town's power, makes everyone exchange their car keys for horses, and dons a turn of the 18th century French courtier costume. Without power, problems ensue, manifested by electronics salesman-turned-warlord Zynx (played by Patton Oswalt), and it's up to Tom to make things right.
44"Toodle Day"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Jeff Goldblum, Bob OdenkirkDecember 12, 2004 (2004-12-12)105
Although he has limited experience with dogs (and no dog), Tom is selected by the Mayor to provide a canine matchmaker for Jefferton's yearly holiday Toodle Day, in which all eligible dogs in town are married. After purchasing the "last dog" from the local pet shop (run by Jeff Goldblum), Tom sets about the difficult task of training his new pup to become the Toodle Day matchmaker. But the dog-doo hits the fan when Tom's pup is waylaid by an accident, and it's up to Tom to make sure the town's dogs achieve wedded bliss.
55"Rats Off to Ya!"Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Jarred AltermanTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Jeff Garlin, Bob OdenkirkDecember 19, 2004 (2004-12-19)104
When Tom comes up with a novelty T-shirt depicting a top-hat doffing rat and the phrase "Rats Off To Ya!", the Mayor is so delighted by it he grants Tom a kiosk in the mall to peddle his wares in time for the Christmas shopping season. But after setting up his stand in front of a novelty store run by the glad-handing Pat Croece (played by Jeff Garlin), Tom has his shirt concept stolen (and improved) by the devious Croece. Tom's subsequent attempts to capitalize on the "Rats Off" idea (which becomes an overnight sensation) center around a pathetic "Hats Off To Ya" shirt, which is not nearly as endearing. ("Rats Off To Ya!" shirts were actually produced and can be purchased from the show's creators.)
66"Porcelain Birds"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Maria Bamford, John Ennis, Edward Herrmann, Bob OdenkirkApril 17, 2005 (2005-04-17)106
When Jefferton's bird sanctuary is threatened by development, Tom brings the Mayor a petition from the town to save the birds. But the Mayor has a better idea: buying thousands of dollars worth of porcelain birds that are sure to appreciate significantly in value. Of course, Tom foots the bill with Joy's credit card, but when the birds turn out to be worth a bit less than the Mayor anticipated, woe is in the wind for Tom's finances and the real, non-porcelain birds.
77"Vehicular Manslaughter"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Michael Ian Black, Bob Odenkirk, MQ Schmidt April 24, 2005 (2005-04-24)107
Tom proposes a renewable power source based on human waste. Predictably, just as the City Council is about to approve the idea, the Mayor steps in, demanding a third party to verify Tom's plan. The third party turns out to be an old friend of the Mayor (played by Michael Ian Black) who seems more interested in dancing with the Mayor and calling Tom "Steven" than verifying anything. When Tom accidentally kills Black in a traffic accident, he's presented the choice of giving a eulogy at the funeral or facing manslaughter charges. Due to the fickle nature of his "Fun-Puter" (due to his wife Joy using his laptop for on-line sex with a customer), he's also forced to choose between saving his eulogy file or the file with his power plan. At the end of the episode, the meaning of the word "Steven" is made clear, putting the whole episode in perspective.
88"Boy Meets Mayor"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob OdenkirkBob OdenkirkMay 1, 2005 (2005-05-01)108
Scandal grips Jefferton as a tape of the Mayor and the town's band leader Roy Teppert makes it to the media. The tape contains odd and non-explicit material, but the town descends into chaos over the "sexy scandal". The Mayor needs a PR man to help him ride the storm, and wouldn't you know it, Tom is that PR man. In order to distract the furor over the sex tape, Tom, the Mayor and the sickly son of a local sandalmaker, Mr. Sandleman (played by Bob Odenkirk) take to a hot-air balloon and attempt to break a hot-air balloon record previously held by Sandleman.
99"Calcucorn"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk David Cross May 8, 2005 (2005-05-08)110
The subject of Todd's (Joy's ex-husband) TV pilot Mi$ter Entrepreneur, Tom has developed a novelty calculator, the Calcucorn, which features a pink unicorn that speaks results of equations. The Mayor orders 3,000 of the calculators and distributes them to all local government officials and businesses - including a construction firm building a major cross-town bridge - before Tom "works out the kinks", exposing in dramatic fashion that the calculators are inaccurate. Tom, faced with the stress of being constantly filmed by Joy's ex-husband (played by David Cross) and the various crises caused by his faulty calculators, has a very non-Tom-like breakdown.
1010"Gibbons"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Brian Posehn May 15, 2005 (2005-05-15)111
Tom's old friend Gibbons (played by Brian Posehn) gives a solid example of someone who's even a bigger loser than Tom when he visits Jefferton and fails to leave as expected. Tom has a falling out with Gibbons, and when the Mayor stumbles on Gibbons at the Friendship Expo, he becomes smitten with the diminutive, annoying man. Tom's shortcomings as a friend are exposed at the expo when Gibbons falls in a well and gets media attention.

After all three of Tom's stepsons have heart attacks and Joy verbally accosts Tom for interrupting her breakfast, Tom decides to take the initiative and form a "health camp for boys". The Mayor is delighted by the idea, so long as it's funded by Pipe's Buffet, a pipery/eatery located above the Mayor's office specializing in pipe tobacco and fatty meats. But when Tom suspects that the female counselor at Pipe Camp (played by Sarah Silverman in a fat-suit) may be pushing fatty meats and pipe smoking on the young boys at the camp, he is faced with yet another insurmountable dilemma: the weird feelings he may be having for her.
1212"Re-Birth"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker and Eric WareheimScott ChernoffJune 5, 2005 (2005-06-05)109
When Tom tries to start his own consulting business, the City Council rejects his application because his family is not registered. With the Mayor's assistance, Tom embarks on a three-step program to "normalize" his family, using Joy in a rebirthing ceremony which may or may not help get them registered.
1313"Vice Mayor"Tim Heidecker and Eric WareheimTim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Bob Odenkirk Fred Willard June 12, 2005 (2005-06-12)113
Before Tom can flee Jefferton (being quite distraught that nothing has "worked out" for him), the Mayor awards him the post of Vice Mayor. However, this turns out to be the Vice Mayor of Hobotown, and it does not take long for Tom to become embroiled in a bad real-estate deal and a hobo-revolution.
