Mike Tyson mystery cartoon green-lighted by Cartoon Network

Just when you thought that you had heard and seen it all, a Mike Tyson cartoon will be airing soon on Adult Swim.

Earlier today, Cartoon Network greenlighted six pilots including a mystery-solving cartoon that will star a cartoon version of the famous boxer.

The fine folks over at Variety have the full details:
In the new animated comedy series Mike Tyson Mysteries, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets… by solving mysteries! Armed with a magical tattoo on his face and a trusty associate by his side — a talking pigeon — if you have a problem that needs solving, Iron Mike is in your corner. The series incorporates live-action appearances featuring Mighty Mike himself, and the gloves come off as the former heavyweight champ and his fowl-mouthed partner gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries — like how to defeat a super computer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can’t finish his novel — down for the count. Animated quarter-hour from Warner Bros Animation.
This might possibly be the greatest cartoon of all-time or something that we might never speak of ever again.
