Adult Swim orders MIke Tyson cartoon with talking pigeon

Mike Tyson is getting his own cartoon for Adult Swim entitled Mike Tyson Mysteries, a show where he fights crime with his sidekick, a talking pigeon. No we didn’t make that up. Also, he has a magical face tattoo. Clearly this is must-watch TV.


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.

Does Mike Tyson open with the Queen’s Gambit? Does he counter with the Sicilian Defense? These are things I need to know. Thank you Adult Swim. I only hope the pigeon’s voice is played by Gilbert Gotfried. That would make for an epic one-two combo of grating voices.
