Tom Goes to the Mayor began its life as a webcomic and was picked up by Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. It is an animated show that photographs cast members with different positions and facial expressions. These photographs are then then transformed into "photocopied" cartoon characters using photo-editing software. This gives the show a very distinctive look somewhere in between cartoon and live-action.

The show centers around the adventures of Tom Peters, a new resident of the fictional town of Jefferton. The town of Jefferton is run down and beset by problems. Civic-minded Tom creates much of the show's action by coming up with wildly varying ideas and schemes to improve the town's productivity and image. He then takes his idea to the Mayor for approval.

The Mayor likes Tom's idea well enough in most episodes--but he's not willing use the idea in the way Tom recommends. The Mayor prefers to tweak the idea ever-so-slightly to make it "better." This usually has the opposite effect, creating a town-wide disaster that Tom, and not the Mayor, must answer for.

The show typically features bizarre humor and often toes the line between clever and silly with its jokes.
