Former heavyweight boxing great Mike Tyson has been enjoying a fantastic resurgence in his career, with acting roles and a stage play that opened to solid reviews. The latest in the reincarnation of Iron Mike occurs with the upcoming cartoon series Mike Tyson Mysteries, and it could be the makings of something truly awesome.
At this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim debuted a trailer for the series, which features the tatted ex-champ solving mysteries with The Mike Tyson Mystery Team, featuring the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensbury, and Tyson’s adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee. There’s also a talking pigeon who indulges in heavy drinking and Internet dating.
Mike Tyson, Norm Macdonald, Rachel Ramras, and Jim Rash are among the voice talent. Trying to explain the trailer is nearly impossible. We don’t know what in the world is going on here, but that’s half the fun. Just check it out for yourself and come to your own conclusion.
Mike Tyson Mysteries is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. The show debuts this fall as part of Adult Swim’s 2014-2015 lineup.
