Very funky animation style. If you're thinking you won't like this because you don't like Tim and Eric Awesome show, you'd be wrong. It's a bit random, but not as much as Awesome Show. Entertaining!

"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."
Tom Goes To The Mayor: It makes your brain itch....in a good

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! ;)"
