Adult Swim unveiled a sneak peek of Mike Tyson’s new cartoon, “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” and it will leave you wanting more. From the looks of it, the show will fill the “Scooby Doo” void adults have to live with on a daily basis.
Following is a synopsis of the cartoon, which will debut in Fall 2014:
Mike Tyson Mysteries, a new half-hour animated adult comedy series, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets … by solving mysteries! Aided by the Mike Tyson Mystery Team – the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensbury, Mike’s adopted Korean daughter, and a pigeon who was once a man – Mike Tyson will answer any plea sent to him. If you have a problem that needs solving, Iron Mike is in your corner. The series incorporates live-action appearances featuring Mighty Mike himself, and the gloves come off as the former heavyweight champ and his team gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries down for the count. The series stars Mike Tyson, Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live), Rachel Ramras (MAD), and Jim Rash (The Way Way Back, Community). Mike Tyson Mysteries is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
I know what you’re thinking: that’s the craziest cartoon plot of all time. Yes, it is, but it works, in a strangely awesome way. But don’t take my word for it, go ahead and watch this preview from San Diego’s Comic-Con for yourself.
