Tom Jumbo-Grumbo is a Blue Whale and news anchor in BoJack Horseman.


Tom Jumbo-Grumbo is an anthropomorphic blue whale and a news anchor at MSNBSea and a recurring character in BoJack Horseman.

He interviews Neal McBeal, the Navy Seal from who BoJack "steals" a box of muffins at a supermarket.

When the Hollywood "D" is stolen by BoJack he gets angry at the copywriter Randy that works the teleprompter and his overuse of alliterations.

He is divorced from his ex-wife, Shannon , whom he repeatedly insults on-air, only to retract the insult immediately afterwards.


Tom seems to want to pay the most attention to pointless celebrity news and sees it as big news. He is often irritated by Randy's tactics but does get concerned when he passes out and he really does consider him "family".


Tom is an adult middle-aged blue whale.

He is seen wearing a black business jacket white collared button down dress shirt, pants, and shoes and a necktie with red and orange stripes.

In the 90s he had wavy dark brown hair.

He wore a dark blue button-down shirt with two front pockets and cuffed sleeves that is slightly unbuttoned to reveal a white undershirt, dark grey pants, and light grey socks, and black dress shoes.


  • His nickname is a play on the Louisiana stew, Gumbo, the recipe that includes shellfish.
