Mike Tyson Gets Animated…by Adult Swim: Thinking Outside the Boxer

Cartoon fans, forget Scooby-Doo's Mystery Machine and get ready for Mike Tyson Mysteries. Because Adult Swim is fixin' to put the controversial boxer on your TV box.

For some, of course, a bigger mystery might be how Tyson even got a show, but Adult Swim, in all its youth-demographic wisdom, green-lighted the animated series and that's good enough for us.

According to the network's press release, Tyson will solve mysteries with the help of a magical face tattoo (luckily, he's already got one) and a "fowl-mouthed" talking pigeon sidekick.

Let's hope Mike's winged buddy fares better than another of the pigeon-fancier pugilist's birds, who reportedly got grilled and eaten by Tyson's ex.

Among their cases: How to beat a supercomputer at chess, and figuring out why a famous author/werewolf can't finish his novel.

We. Can't. Wait. Are you pumped up to see Iron Mike on your boob tube? Let us hear it in the comments
