Adult Swim announced six new shows last night, including Dan Harmon’s animated series Rick & Morty, but there’s only one part of this news I want to talk about, and that part is CARTOON MIKE TYSON SOLVING MYSTERIES WITH A TALKING PIGEON SIDEKICK. From Variety:
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 super computer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can’t finish his novel — down for the count. Animated quarter-hour from Warner Bros Animation.
Allow me to repeat: At some point in the near-ish future, there is going to be a cartoon where Mike Tyson and his magical face tattoo solve mysteries, sometimes involving super computers, with the assistance of a profane pigeon.
Best day ever.
