Tutorial Tom is a dog NPC toon. He helps new toons to get started in the game, and only appears in the Toon-torial of the gameplay. In that time, he gives players their first gags, a Squirting Flower and a Cupcake, and explains how to use them. Furthermore, the toon receives their first ToonTask, which is to defeat a Flunky outside of the shop. After the Flunky is defeated, Tutorial Tom teleports to the player and instructs them to obtain his/her reward from Toon Headquarters, then leaves once again through his portable hole.
- Toontown Rewritten Beta features the old version of Tutorial Tom before he was updated in Toontown Online, which includes his head shape, and his ears shooting up when he saw a Flunky outside of his shop.
- Tutorial Tom never appears again after the Toon-torial is completed.
- There is a bug regarding Tutorial Tom. Upon defeating the Flunky, Tutorial Tom will tell you to go turn in your task at the Toon HQ, but he is missing his legs. In a certain update, this glitch has been fixed and should not happen again.
- He is the first toon (other than your own) that you see in the game.
