While making videos for YouTube, Tom almost got kicked out of The University of Lincoln for posting a parody of the university's advert. This was because of the inappropriate content shown in the video, but he was forgiven when they saw the view count.

In 2003, Tom met then 14-year-old Edd Gould online. He and Edd started to produce an animated series called "Eddsworld" around 2005. Later on, in 2006, he became the main voice of his character in the series, along with Edd and two of Edd's other friends, who together made the cast of 4 main characters, Tom, Edd, Matt and Tord. They found success in this series and they become an icon on Newgrounds and YouTube; the series took a rapid turn when in 2012 Edd died of Leukemia (cancer) and Tom took over the production of Eddsworld until 2016.
