Tom Goes to the Mayor was a series of thirty episodes (13 in season one and 17 in season two) that run about 11 minutes apiece.

The game that The Mayor is playing on his computer is totally obscured (a big letdown as it was a full-screen sequence...) and the photograph of Roy Teppert (obviously not the same person who later appeared in the show under that name) has its face blurred.

Tom, however, isn't there just to have his eye poked buy the inquisitive Mayor, he's there to sell hoagies for the annual Father/Son Barrel Goat Hunt, in which the father/son teams hunt the dreaded barrel goat, a creature that is driven insane by the scent of pickle barrels.
Part of enjoying Tom Goes to the Mayor --and I think by this point those who don't enjoy the show have moved on to other things-- is that it exists in a world pretty much void of any adherence to physical or moral laws.
Tom has been killed, gone to hell, inexplicably transported both his father and the Mayor to an airplane in mid-flight, and been trapped underwater with a tiny man trapped inside him.

 Tom Goes to the Mayor - Page 2
There are guest stars for almost every chapter of Tom Goes to the Mayor, from actors to musicians we have individuals playing as shop owners and the like, somehow involved in Peters' and The Mayor's ridiculous schemes.
For example, when The Mayor decides to place bear traps all over the town to make the children safer in the chapter entitled, "Bear Traps," there just so happens to be two store shop owners of bear traps.
I can imagine that the insertion of an overly dramatic character is supposed to offset the apparent lack of complexity amongst the central cast in Tom Goes to the Mayor, but in order for such a thing to occur one would hope that the balance of such character dynamics would not be so lopsided.

 Tom Goes to the Mayor: Wrestling - TV Squad
Meanwhile, Tom, who is the team's "equipment boy" and dresses as if he's an extra in Flashdance, discovers that the kids have been using an illegal supplement called "Flaxamax." Tom discovers this while hanging the boy's jock straps in the locker room and spraying them down with a garden hose.
Tom takes his concern to the Mayor, but the Mayor is a huge wrestling fan who invented a move called the "crab" that he used to paralyze several children, and he's not about to let Tom expose a scandal that could get the team disqualified.
The Mayor gets an ingenious idea to admit to the city council that the boys have been taking Flaxamax, because he believes that once a team is disqualified the entire match is decided by a coin toss (and he has a two-headed coin).

Mayor Tom Potter has just sent a letter to all four City Commissioners and the City Auditor detailing six additional expenditures he will be able to fund in the budget.
While the mayor has idealistically pursued to involve the younger generation, he has lost touch with community-wide values, ironically at a time when he is pursuing a citywide visioning effort.
The mayor has time and again said that he wants to fund safety first, so lets all 300 write him to let him know how happy we are about the BMP, but that we also want him to spend some of this found money on fully funding PDOT's safe streets request.

Yesterday, the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said in a radio interview that Britain was ‘no longer a Christian country’ because people no longer went to church.
Although it goes to some lengths to pretend that it is hostile only to Israel but not to Jews, its real agenda is all too plain.
Because that in Gaza or Lebanon is far greater than in Israel, the argument goes that the scale of Israel’s response is illegitimate.

Tom Goes to the Mayor, the experimental show that tries so hard to break traditional animation conventions that it forgets to be funny.
The Adult Swim folks must've been brainstorming with Marion Barry when they dreamed up Tom Goes to the Mayor, the experimental show that tries so hard to break traditional animation conventions that it forgets to be funny.
Each episode revolves around Tom Peters, a well-meaning new resident in the small town of Jefferton who presents the mayor with noble ideas for civic improvement only to watch them warp into ridiculously disastrous initiatives (i.e., setting hundreds of bear traps around town to protect children from predators).

 Noise To Signal: Tom Goes to the Mayor DVD this spring!
Every episode begins with Tom Peters bringing his latest idea to The Mayor, who then hijacks the idea for his own ends (more out of childish excitement than any sort of selfishness, though) and, of course, brings the entire thing crashing down in a blaze of humiliation for all involved.
I've also heard some say that each episode is a "reboot" of the original situation in which Tom has a new idea and, in classic chaos-theory manner, the events of the episode then unfold entirely differently within the same framework.
Of course, maybe Tom Goes to the Mayor is just an excuse for two very entertaining performers to get together and have fun, being sometimes painfully amusing in the process.
