We’re a couple of days late on this, but that doesn’t make it any less “Wha?”.
Adult Swim just launched Mike Tyson Mysteries, a Scooby-Doo-style animated series (if Scooby had a potty mouth) featuring Mike Tyson himself, plus an anthropomorphic pigeon voiced by Norm MacDonald, Mike’s fictional adopted daughter Yung Hee, and the ghost of the 9th Marquess of Queensberry.
In the NSFW, YFIO Episode 1 “The End,” Mike helps a novelist with writer's block:
Cormac McCarthy’s latest novel is unfinished and for some reason he turns to Mike Tyson to help him find the ending. But just as Mike settles in to tackle some of that dense, unflinching McCarthy prose, a Chupacabra attacks! Mike puts down the book and puts up his fists. Buenas noches, Senor Chupacabra.
Talk about a confounding caper! The next episode airs tonight!
