Mike Tyson cartoon set to air
NEW YORK -- Adult Swim says it's turning Mike Tyson into a cartoon detective.
The network announced Friday it will show a new animated series called "Mike Tyson Mysteries" that will feature the retired boxing champion.
On the show, a cartoon version of Tyson will solve wacky problems, assisted by a trusty associate: a foul-mouthed pet pigeon. The network said Tyson will voice the animated character, as well as make live-action appearances.
The show is targeted for next season, but no premiere date was specified.
