Mike Tyson Mysteries
« on: May 10, 2013, 09:16:41 PM »
Adult Swim's 2013 Upfront was announced today, and a bit of a surprise popped up in their list of original series: A project from WBA!

Quote
MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES - 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.

It shall be such an avant-garde show that minor minds like ours will be too casual to appreciate.

Hopefully this will be good and not random for the sake of random. It being done by WBA means it'll at least be animated well.

I don't know, compared to all the other crap they announced, this may be the best show AS has come up with in a while.

Not Zebras in America?

Bah.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

As WTF?!-inducing as this idea sounds, it actually sounds like it could be head-and-shoulders above Adult Swim's usual drek. At least with WBA at the helm, it will be animated well, and hopefully the usual Williams Street hacks won't be writing it.

Can I get an AMEN up in here?

...Wow. :zonk: When I first looked at the image, that thought didn't even occur to me.

Now that I think about it, when was the last time AS made a Hanna-Barbera parody series? Those were certainly when AS' originals were at their best. Nice to see that WBA is trying to recapture that.

Wait. That may not just be a Speed Buggy rip-off. Considering it's Speedy's 40th anniversary, it may be Speedy him/itself. It wouldn't be an [as] project without some kind of back-handed tribute to H-B's past, even if it's WBA.
