Mike Tyson has spent his life as a walking cartoon character, so now he gets a chance to be a real one. The show “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” is set to appear on Adult Swim, allowing Tyson to have a great post-boxing career. We just hope that Mike’s life is put together and his mental health is in order. This is a big move for Mike, and adds to his recent achievements as an actor. It stars Tyson and a pigeon, so the show should be funny.
Adult Swim says it’s turning Mike Tyson into a cartoon detective.
The network announced a new animated series Friday called “Mike Tyson Mysteries” that will feature the retired boxing champ.
On the show, a cartoon version of Tyson will solve wacky problems, assisted by a trusty associate: a foul-mouthed pet pigeon. The network said Tyson will voice the animated character, as well as make live-action appearances.
The show is targeted for next season, but no premiere date was specified.
Among other programming planned for its 2013-14 season, Adult Swim announced “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II.” It’s a second spinoff of the cable network’s long-running stop-motion sketch comedy series.
