The Last Man on Earth and its cartoonish vibe.

Is nobody else reminded of Tom & Jerry and other similar cartoons when they watch The Last Man on Earth?

I have had this thought on my mind for a few episodes now, but the last two (them being episode 7 and 8) have really empowered that thought in my mind.  Without going into any spoiler territory and trying to keep this thought of mine as short as possible, it feels as if the main character of the show, Phil has very akin characteristics to Tom, if we are to continue with the Tom & Jerry example.  He is consistently coming up with new ideas with a solely narcissistic aim, to get himself something he really wants, whatever that may be.  However time and again he falls just short of his goal and in the end somehow “his Jerry” manages to elude him.
