WWE Hall of Famer Getting His Own Cartoon

— WWE Hall of Famer “Iron” Mike Tyson is getting his own cartoon. The cartoon titled “Mike Tyson Mysteries”, will feature Tyson teaming with a foul mouthed pigeon sidekick. The cartoon will debut on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in the Fall.

The premise of the show is as follows:

“Mike Tyson Mysteries”: In the new animated comedy series “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets by solving mysteries! Armed with a magical tattoo on his face and a trusty associate by his side — a talking pigeon — 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 fowl-mouthed partner gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries — like how to defeat a supercomputer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can’ t finish his novel — down for the count. Animated quarter-hour from Warner Bros Animation.”

    Its not pointless actually. Adult Swim is the late night entertainment division of Cartoon Network. Although both networks share the same time space, Adult Swim is classified as a separate entity for the purposes of Nielsen ratings. If an episode carried a particular rating descriptor (D, L, S, V), that descriptor will be listed. Otherwise, a generic rating without descriptors (TV-PG, TV-14, TV-MA) will be listed as the rating

    Shouldn’t it be……. FOWL mouthed pigeon?!?!?

  • aren’t the CN and adult swim different companies they just have a time share on the same channel so your complaint is pretty pointless?

    Tyson gets a show yet CN gets rid of Green Lantern TAS & Young Justice ? Crap. At least I could watch those hero shows with my sons. I can see it now as the moral of Mikes story somewhere “Hey kids never bite someones ear off ..”. Ughhhhhhhh
