Mike Tyson to Solve Mysteries With a Cartoon Pigeon


I was honestly going to declare a moratorium on any more TV posts today. And then I found out that Mike Tyson is getting a cartoon where he solves mysteries with the aid of a talking bird.

Well, I mean, what would Jesus do? If he were a nerd blogger, I mean?

You’re damn right he’d share the good news around.

In the new animated comedy series Mike Tyson Mysteries, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets… by solving mysteries! Armed with a magical tattoo on his face and a trusty associate by his side — a talking pigeon — 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 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.

“Fowl-mouthed.” If the rest of the writing is like that, who can resist?

Naturally, it’s on Adult Swim. Check out the rest of their new lineup.
