I had an idea that Tom should be a professional pet photographer, or specifically a cat photographer and he wants to change the theme to cats so that he will get more work. And then he has a rivalry with another photographer. And a rivaly with peter parker. He's like "sorry peter, no room for spiderman pictures today!"
also there should be a character that has the voice of a famous movie star, but a totally different personality. Like groucho marx, but all different personality.
