Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a great country. While this is, obviously, always true, sometimes something is brought to our attention that reminds us of that.
For example, a video recently surfaced of Michael Jordan losing a basketball game to Martin and Charlie Sheen back in 1986. It was called “The War of the Stars,” it involved short shorts and it was epic.
Now, the greatness that is late-night cartoon viewing brings us another gem that can only be found in ‘Murica: Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim is making a cartoon starring Mike Tyson and a talking pigeon for a sidekick.
And yes, just in case you were wondering, Mike Tyson Mysteries does involve a magical face tattoo, so you’re good on that one (via indiewire.com):
The series incorporates live-action appearances featuring Mighty Mike himself, and the gloves come off as the former heavyweight champ and his fowl-mouthed partner gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries – like how to defeat a super computer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can’t finish his novel – down for the count.
We here at Gamedayr only have two requests: First, please make one episode pairing Tyson and the pigeon with Scooby and Shaggy — every ’90s child will have to call into work the next day while suffering from a melted face and blown mind.
Second, and this one is important: Either Charlie Sheen, Charles Barkley, Shaq, or Gilbert Gottfried as the voice of the pigeon.
Please, Adult Swim, you’re already doing so much for us in making this wonderfully, stupidly ridiculous show, now just take it a little further.
We would also accept Will Ferrell as the pigeon’s voice, because you’re already making a freaking Mike Tyson cartoon with a pigeon for a sidekick. Everything else is just plain gravy.
