This past Monday, Adult Swim aired the premiere episode of Mike Tyson Mysteries–a new animated series starring Iron Mike by Ethan Spaulding (Scooby Doo) and Hugh Davidson (Robot Chicken).
In 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.
In the debut episode, Cormac McCarthy’s latest novel is unfinished and for some reason he turns to Mike to help him find the ending. But just as Mike settles in to tackle some of that dense, unflinching McCarthy prose, a Chupacabra attacks!
For those that missed it, Adult Swim has made it available on their YouTube page. Check it out up top and be sure to tune in every Monday at 10:30pm.
