The always entertaining Mike Tyson is back to fighting – fighting cartoon villains that is. Adult Swim looks to have a winner in Mike Tyson Mysteries, a very Scooby-Doo-like spoof cartoon where Iron Mike’s wacky crew solve mad-capped capers. The Mystery Team is comprised of his adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee (Rachel Ramras), a foul-mouthed pigeon who used to be a man before his ex-wife cast a spell on him (Norm Macdonald) and the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry (Jim Rash).
In the first episode Mike and the gang must help Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy (All the Pretty Horses and No Country for Old Men) finish one of his books. Sound ridiculously preposterous enough for you? The writers take full advantage of Tyson’s lisp and inability to correctly pronounce words such as “chupacabra.” Meanwhile Macdonald’s snarky pigeon character talks about picking up online prostitutes. Below is a 10-minute preview of Mike Tyson Mysteries and the show airs on Mondays at 10:30 p.m on Adult Swim, beginning Oct. 27.
