Tom Thumb (Two Bad Mice)

Tom Thumb is one of the two protagonist villains of Beatrix Potter's book The Tale of Two Bad Mice, his wife Hunca Munca being the other.

Villainous Role

Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca trespass into a little girl's dollhouse, which is said to be dwelt by her dolls Lucinda and Jane, and wreck everything, especially upon finding out that the food isn't real.

Upon the little girl's return with her dolls, and upon her finding out that her dollhouse was vandalized, she puts an officer doll in front of the dollhouse, while her nurse sets a mousetrap.

As punishment, Tom pays for his mistake.
