Mike Tyson Creates A Cartoon?!

Surfing the web recently, I came across an article about Mike Tyson’s newest cartoon! My thoughts at first were this is absurd and pretty insane. Probably one of the craziest things I have ever heard….until I watched the trailer and I was highly amused at the wackiness of this cartoon! 

The heavyweight champ has ventured into the animation world by creating this Scooby Doo influenced cartoon, Mike Tyson Mysteries, airing on Adult Swim. Tyson solves mysteries with his team of friends; the Ghost of the Marquees of Queensberry, an alcoholic pigeon and his adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee. 

Tyson’s television spotlights are becoming more frequent with his appearances in the Hangover movies, then his one man show on HBO and now his own animated cartoon! It is obvious you cannot predict anything when it comes to Mike Tyson. 

Mike Tyson Mysteries airs on Mondays at 10:30 p.m., on Adult Swim. Will you be tuning in to help Tyson solve his mysteries?
