(Newser) – He's been dabbling in the movies, so why not the cartoons? None other than Mike Tyson is getting his own animated series on the Adult Swim network next season, says the Hollywood Reporter. Tyson will voice himself as his character ... solves mysteries. He'll get help from a foul-mouthed pigeon sidekick and, of course, a "magical tattoo on his face." No specifics yet on when Mike Tyson Mysteries will first air.

Mike is a very intelligent man. Certainly one of the world's classy heavyweight champions. He paid for his domestic mistakes. He didn't kill anyone. Please stop downplaying him. 1942
