The series centers on the cat Talking Tom and his best friends, who make inventions, movies, music and more in a garage/lab/production studio that also happens to be Tom’s home. The group’s got tons of ideas, from time traveling rugs to flying shoes to a hot new kind of restaurant, and they’re always looking to share those ideas with the world. Of course, sometimes the world isn’t quite ready, and the ideas lead to “a disaster” or “a catastrophe” or “total chaos.” But you know what Tom calls that? An adventure!
