Mike Tyson Mysteries. Let that sink in for a moment. If you’re overcome with a sense of confusion and giddiness, don’t be alarmed. It’s is a perfectly rational response to a concept this outlandish. I attended the panel and press round table yesterday. Forget Avengers 2 and Batman v. Superman. For me, the can’t miss panel of this SDCC was Mike Tyson Mysteries.
Mike Tyson Mysteries focuses around a mystery solving team staffed by Mike Tyson (as himself)’ The Marquis of Queensberry (Jim Rash), Mike’s adopted Korean Daughter (Rachel Ramras), and a foul mouthed Pigeon (Norm MacDonald), with special celebrity guests such as Don “Magic” Juan, amongst others.
The animation style is pure Hanna Barbera Saturday morning, as is the implausibility of the scenarios. When you have a problem, send a pigeon to the Mike Tyson Mysteries team and they’ll come to your rescue. Most of the problems are mundane in nature,like airport pickups or help buying a house, but soon devolve into pursuing a supernatural being such as the chupacabra. I got to talk to some of the starts of the show, and they are all very enthusiastic and recognize the boundaries of silliness that this concept could push.
