You aren't asleep though, and be thankful that you aren't because Mike Tyson is getting his own television show. That's right, beginning October 27th at 10p.m. The Dynamite Kid, Iron Mike Tyson will star as himself in a Hanna Barbera style cartoon show on none other than the Adult Swim network.
Now is the part where you might want to sit down.
Yes that is Mike Tyson voicing himself as a tracksuit wearing mystery solver. Yes it looks like one of those ridiculous 70's celebrity cash-in cartoon efforts. Yes he has a van and a crew of wacky misfits, including a pigeon. It's a good time to be alive.
Don't worry here's a trailer:
Let me drop a few more details on you, in case you weren't paying attention. Throughout this homage/parody of the Hanna-Barbera style mystery series like “Scooby Doo,” “Josie and The Pussycats,” or “Mr. T,” it comes complete with the prerequisite group of misfits, including Yung Hee, Tyson’s adopted Korean daughter/Velma surrogate, the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, a gentlemanly send-up of the obscure “Funky Phantom” character, and Pigeon, a foul-mouthed alcoholic man who was turned into a pigeon by his ex-wife. In summation, this is sure to be the best show ever produced for television.
Punch your DVR for not informing you about this then set it, write it down on your calendar, and then sleep as much as you can to quickly advance time. It all cannot come soon enough.
Thrill me Mike. I am ready.
