Product Description

Tom Goes To The Mayor:The Complete Series (DVD)

Amazon.com

Tom (played by series co-creator Tim Heidecker) is Tom Peters, recently moved to the quiet suburb of Jefferton and bursting with ideas on how to improve the town and his own miserable life. The Mayor (co-creator Eric Wareheim) is the infantile head of the town who accepts all of Tom's plans, but "tweaks" them for his own unfathomable purposes, which invariably results in disaster for all (but mostly for Tom). That's the premise behind Adult Swim's animated series Tom Goes to the Mayor, one of the network's most polarizing shows in terms of their audience, and also one of its most oddly fascinating and inventive. Much of the viewership's division came over the program's unusual animation style, which consisted of still photos of the cast that were then Photoshopped to resemble something like mimeographs. But the show's bizarre storylines also attracted--and repelled--those looking for offbeat animation; among the adventures endured by Tom and the Mayor was a plan to save the town's bird sanctuary by replacing the real birds with porcelain statues ("Porcelain Birds"), a hot air-balloon stunt as a means of deflecting attention to a sex scandal ("Boys Meets Mayor"), and the death of countless residents via a spray-on carpet, which results in Tom going to Hell.

Clearly, Tom Goes to the Mayor is an acquired taste, even for diehard Adult Swim/alternative animation fans, but for those whose sense of humor veers towards the surreal, the show is very funny, even hilarious at times. And it doesn't hurt that the guest cast includes such solid comic talent as Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, David Cross, Patton Oswalt, Fred Willard, Paul Reubens, and Jeff Garlin, as well as actors like Jeff Goldblum, Edward Herrmann, and even Dustin Diamond of Saved By The Bell infamy. All 30 episodes of the show's first and second (and by all accounts, final, as the creators have begun another series) seasons are included in this three-disc set; extras include very amusing commentary by Heidecker and Wareheim on every episode, tongue-in-cheek featurettes on how the show is put together, the celebrity guests, and executive producer Bob (Mr. Show) Odenkirk's contributions to the show, deleted scenes, original promo spots, and best of all, the three original web cartoons that inspired the series. -- Paul Gaita

Tom Goes to the Mayor is pretty much what the plot synopsis says here. Tom goes to the Mayor, and pitches an idea ranging from terrible, to mildly bad, to mediorce. The Mayor takes this idea and makes it worst. Hillarity ensues. It might sound boring, and repetitive on paper, but thanks to the wild, and creepy imaginations of Tim, and Eric, the creators, plus some truly sick writers, the show is great.

It's definitely not a show for everyone, but what TV show is for everyone? If you like surreal humor, and awkward situations that involve a bumbling Mayor, and an incredibly naieve idiot, you'll like this.

Format: DVD
A persistent delusion among ordinary Americans is that they can singlehandedly transform their ideas & pluck into a path to riches, or at least subsistence. Despite being coerced and humiliated daily by a corporate-controlled system of intrusive marketing tactics, state complicity & and a continuous fleecing by all involved, Americans in large measure still accept the preposterous precepts of pop Libertarianism, the clandestine essence of which is merciless social Darwinism. In Tom Goes to the Mayor, these delusions are just as mercilessly autopsied and found nauseatingly necrotic to their core.

The setting is precise: a small city, "Jefferton", located at the interchange of two Interstates, according to the paper placemat at the local "Gulliver's" seen briefly in the opening credits. Its charms are listed in the theme song: Community Spirit! Shopping! Food! What "community spirit" exists in Jefferton, however, is simply there to nourish the tepid commerce comprising the "shopping" and "food". The central character, Tom, is a gutted victim of postmodern social collapse: unemployed, of course; maxed out on his cards; behind in every payment he is responsible for; trapped in the second marriage of a morbidly obese ogress with fat, snarling diabetic brats; his brain infected with self-help & business-press aphorisms that make his utterances sound like hackneyed PowerPoint presentations half the time. The forces he confronts are personified in the twisted lunatic Mayor whom he must petition in each episode.

Tom is compelled by his circumstances to try and lever every lame & insipid entrepreneurial idea he can think of into some sort of cash flow. These attempts fail utterly in every instance, each time surreally illustrating another absurd aspect of postindustrial life in the US.

2004...

A year that will live on as one that produced some of the most polarized, non-sequiter Television shows to date. A year, that took the phrase "Mayor's Office!" from a unuttered declaration to a one of the most beloved (and hated) phrases known to Adult Swim viewerrs everywhere.

Tom Goes To The Mayor has got to be one of the most intriguing TV shows I've seen in a long long while, if not because it's so different! It's mix of (occasionally) delightfully tasteless, many times alkward, but always funny humor places the phrase "You either love it, or you hate it) to a new tier. The plot of the whole series is pretty much the same throughout. Tom goes to the mayor, pitches and idea, and all hell breaks loose. But, while this may sound like a theme that would get stale by the third episode, TGTTM manages to keep it fresh with their humerously wacky, wonderfully demented, and just plain "What the hell?" elements.

Many people, for those reasons, hate this show. In a world where Aqua Teen Hunger Force is the farthest many people are willing to go for polarized humor, Tom Goes To The Mayor often takes it just a little too far, boarderlining on Monty Python-esque humor. (In one episode, a Monkey jumps out of an Eclair.) For many, seeing a monkey leap out of a giant eclair is just too much for their conformist brains to handle. Even for us that enjoy the series, it does sometimes make our (mine anyway) brains itch. But it's all in good fun! This DVD collection is the ultimate for any Tom fans out there (mainly because it's the whole TGTTM world in a three disc set). For people who don't like the Tom Goes to the Mayor series, then for god's sake, don't get it! Go find an old theme park to rebuild, just to burn to the ground, or solve the issue of child safety by employing bear traps, but if you hate the series, then don't get these DVDs. More for us fans! ;)

Format: DVD
Tom Goes to the Mayor is a hilarious and bizarre cartoon in which every episode finds Tom Peters in some way attempting to work with the Mayor of the lovely town of Jefferton on some poorly conceived plan. The show is often random, bizarre, disgusting and just generally crazy. It's entirely possible you just won't get the show and I certainly wouldn't blame you if you didn't. But fans of other unusual adult cartoon shows (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab, etc.) will likely fall in love with the inspired absurdity of this show. Virtually every one of the 30 episodes is worth a viewing, and the show is loaded with great guest stars including Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Jeff Goldblum, Sarah Silverman, Gary Busey, Michael Ian Black, Fred Willard, and countless more. The only drawback to the DVD set is that the special features are rather disappointing. There just isn't a whole lot of good content there, and some bits of material are even directly repeated in different portions of bonus materials. Despite this one drawback, however, it's a phenomenal show, all 30 episodes of which are collected in this set. This show isn't for everyone, but if it's for you, you're going to love it.
