[ # ] Mike Tyson Mysteries is a knock out!!!
October 27th, 2014 under Adult Swim, Mike Tyson

Back when Mike Tyson was knocking people out in seconds, who would’ve thought he would have had an animated show solving mysteries on Adult Swim. No one, but that is exactly what is happening tonight at 10:30p in Mike Tyson’s Mysteries. It’s like Scooby Doo for adults, but even better than you could wish for.
Mike Tyson has gone from boxing extraordinaire to the best crime solver in the world. He can’t do it all by himself, so he has a team of people helping him out. He has been raising Yung Hee (Rachel Ramras) since she was left at his doorstep as a baby and now she is getting ready to go to college. John Chambers the 9th Marquess of Queensberry (Jim Rash), a know-it-all ghost who got Tyson to turn his life around. Finally, there is Pigeon (Norm MacDonald), who used to be human and now he is a wisecracking drunk pigeon who lives with them all. You see, they get their cases from carrier pigeons, so it makes sense that he would have a talking pigeon. Right?
Tonight, they get a carrier pigeon from Carmac McCarthy, who needs their help to finish his book. So it is off in the Mystery Van they go. When they get there, the find out they are there to get rid of a Chupacabra. The best part of the series premiere is watching Mike Tyson trying to pronounce the urban legend. A name he still can’t even say as of a few weeks ago. Something he demonstrated at a press event that had everyone in the room laughing. I knew Iron Mike was funny from watching him on talk shows, but to witness it in person is a completely different thing.
Now you might not believe he is naturally funny as all hell, but we were told that a lot of executives didn’t think he was voicing his own character on the show. He thinks, “It’s because they can’t understand it or else it sounds very distinguished?” I am thinking the latter.
So what can you expect from the animated crime solving show? In the upcoming weeks, Mike Tyson Mysteries goes to IBM and the episode is built on a joke. He will also travel to the Moon because of something his wife told the producers about his bad driving. He’s also heading to Nicaragua to stop the building of canal that is really happening. On another show, Tyson has a rash and he blames Pigeon so he kicks him out. Be prepared to hear McDonald let loose. And in one episode, he will help a couple buy a house. The last one is something the Hangover star is not good at because he told us if someone is selling a house for $5 million, he offers them $7.5 million.
If that is not enough to get you to watch, there will be singing, lots and lots of singing. Tonight, you will hear him sing about bird sex. In a future episode he belts out, a song about converting to Christianity.
Mike Tyson Mysteries is a great way to end your Tuesdays because it is so out there, and yet so much fun. Plus, who doesn’t want to see one of the greatest boxers of all time be an animated crime solving version of himself. It’s a cartoon for you and me to enjoy and when the kids are finally asleep. We all loved watching cartoons as kids and now we have one to enjoy as adults. But don’t tell the little ones because than they will want to stay up and watch it, and this is only for us!
