WWE HALL OF FAMER GETTING HIS OWN CARTOON

WWE Hall of Famer Mike Tyson is getting his own cartoon. Seriously.

Mike Tyson Mysteries, featuring Tyson teaming with a foul mouthed pigeon sidekick, will debut this Fall for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

The series premise is explained in this excerpt from the network's official announcement of new programming:

"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.
