"Tom, Tomm and Tommy" is a Canadian-American adult animated comedy television series created by Scott Underwood for Fox. The series revolves around three preteen cat boys: Tom, Tomm "Double M," and Tommy—collectively known as "the Toms"—who live in a suburban cul-de-sac in the fictional town of Punch Creek. Under the unofficial leadership of Tommy, the trio frequently invent schemes to make money from their peers to purchase their favorite confectionery, jawbreakers. Their plans usually fail, leaving them in various, often humiliating, predicaments. With a 10-year run, Tom, Tomm and Tommy was the longest-running Fox original animated series at the time of its end. The show was produced by Shaftesbury Films, 20th Century Fox Television and MGM Television and was distributed by 20th Television. The series is rated TV-MA-LS.

Premise

Tom, Tomm and Tommy follows the lives of "the Toms," three preteen cat boys who all share variations of the name Tom, but differ greatly in their personalities: Tom (voiced by Matt Hill) is the strong, dull-witted dogsbody of the group; Tomm (Samuel Vincent), better known as Double M, is an inventor, neat freak, and the most intelligent of the Toms; and Tommy (Sean Cullen) is a devious, quick-tempered, bitter con artist, and self-appointed leader of the Toms. The three devise plans to scam the cul-de-sac wild animal kids out of their money, which they want to use to buy jawbreakers. However, problems always ensue, and the Toms' schemes usually end in failure and humiliation.

The cul-de-sac kids do not include the Toms as part of their group, making the trio outcasts. The group of kids include: Johnny 2×4 (David Paul "Buck" Grove) is a lonely fox whom his peers consider to be a nuisance, and spends most of his time with his imaginary friend, a wooden board named Plank; Jimmy (Benjamin Duskin) is a weak, insecure, and accident-prone rabbit child, who is most often seen spending his time with Sarah (Jorja Fox), Toms's vile, spoiled duck, and ill-tempered younger sister; Scolf (Peter Kelamis) is an immigrant skunk, who often participates in odd customs and eats strange food; Mike (Nancy Cartwright) is acynical and sardonic jockey frog who detests the Toms, particularly Tommy; Jazz (Lacey ChabertJenn ForgieErin Fitzgerald), usually seen with Mike, is a stereotypical dumb blonde goose and an unattainable love interest for the cul-de-sac animal kids. All of the cul-de-sac kids share a common fear of the Gerbil Sisters, Jee (Jorja Fox), May (Erin Fitzgerald; Jenn Forgie), and Maria (Nancy Cartwright), three teenage female rodents who live in a nearby trailer park and are in love with the Toms.
