Tommy Zoom is a children's animated superhero television series that was shown regularly on CBeebies in the UK. It was first aired on 19 March 2007.[1]

Developed by Alternative View Studios.


Each episode begins and ends with a live action sequence, narrated by Daniel (Tommy's dog), in which Tommy is faced with a dilemma. Daniel will pose the question "What should Tommy do? What would Tommy Zoom do?" The show then switches to animation to show Tommy Zoom foiling a plot by Polluto which has some link to whatever problem the real Tommy currently faces. After saving the world "in a zoom", the live-action element is re-introduced, and Tommy is seen to make the right choices and solve whatever problem he has.


  • Tommy Zoom (voiced by Elliot Belshaw) is a young superhero, complete with a cape and a large Z imprinted on his chest.
  • Daniel Zoom (voiced by Jerome Flynn) is Tommy's dog and sidekick, who often discovers the problem.
  • Polluto (voiced by Keith Wickham) is a light blue imp or alien with rotten teeth. He is a villain who aims to ruin the world by removing all greenery and polluting watercourses with chemicals. He wears a smart purple suit.
  • Smogg (voiced by Nick Mercer) is a lazy black cat who is Polluto's sidekick. Smogg's whiskers are bent and he has a huge, cheeky smile.

Other characters[edit]

These all appear in the live-action segments.
