Cartoon Production Information:
There were twenty-four eight-minute episodes produced.
This show, combined with 48 episodes of "Sekai no Osha King Kong Daikai" (also titled "King Kong" and "King Kong Ruler of the World" for US showings) was the first Japanese anime to be produced specifically for the American market. It was commissioned by Rankin-Bass from Videocraft, an American company, which, in turn, farmed out the work to Japan-based Toei. There were twenty-six shows in the run of the series. The first twenty-four episodes of the show featured one Tom Thumb and two King Kong episodes in the half-hour. The final two shows featured longer King Kong episodes only.
Toei funded part of the series itself, and did also show this series in Japan. However, designs, scripts, storyboards and voice track were supplied ready-made from the United States.
Tom and Swinging Jack are secret agents who were accidentally zapped by a shrink ray. They are employed by T.H.U.M.B (Tiny Humans Underground Military Bureau). Under the command of Chief Homer J. Chief, they thwart the schemes of enemy organization M.A.D. The enemy organization M.A.D. was an abbreviation for Maladjusted, Antisocial and Darn Mean.
