Mike Tyson, one of boxing’s greatest stars is getting his own animated show on Adult Swim titled “Mike Tyson Mysteries.”
The show was announced at this year’s San Diego Comic Con and audiences also got a chance to view a trailer
Just as the title suggest, Tyson will take his skills from the ring and use them to solve crimes and save innocent people. Like any good quirky detective show, Tyson is assisted by three Watsons: the Marguees of Queensberry, an aristocratic ghosts; Yung Hee, a young lady who appears to be the voice of reason of the team and a pigeon, voiced by Norm MacDonald.
The show has a Scooby Doo vibe, as well elements of old cartoons that starred action stars. As hard as it to believe, stars like Chuck Norris and Mr. T had their own animated series where they only beat up the bad guys, but also taught a young generation life lessons they probably already knew. With the show being on Adult Swim, it’s probably not suitable for children. That said, the show looks pretty funny and could be a break out hit.
With Tyson being a fan of mixed martial arts, I wondered which fighters could land a guest spot on the show down the road. So here is a list of current and former UFC stars who could guest star on the show.
Keep in mind this is just my list and is not ranked in any way, nor does it mean that these are the only fighters who could guest star on the program. Some of these plots and scenarios are based off Scooby Doo tropes, as well as legends.
