Comic-Con 2014: Animated series features boxer as leader of a crime-fighting team that includes Jim Rash as a ghost, and Norm MacDonald as a foul-mouthed pigeon
For anyone who grew up on the various incarnations of Scooby-Doo over the years, Adult Swim’s “Mike Tyson Mysteries may be just the solution. It features a similar visual style and the same mystery-solving adventures, but with an adult sense of humor about the whole thing. After all, his team includes a depressed ghost and a narcissistic pigeon.
The gang is rounded out by the teenage girl who was left abandoned on Tyson’s doorstep as a baby, voiced by Rachel Ramras. She’s the Velma of the group, meaning she appears to be the only one with any sense about her.
Producers at San Diego Comic-Con showed a sneak preview of the upcoming season of “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” premiering this fall on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, and it looked very impressive. It seems to have a similar sense of humor to FX’s “Archer,” without falling too far into the weirdness that permeates much of Adult Swim’s original offerings.
