‘Mike Tyson Mysteries’ is an adult animated series that first premiered on October 27, 2014, on Adult Swim. Mike Tyson is the creator of the show along with Hugh Davidson and Lee Stimmel. The show is directed by Jeff Siergey, Ethan Spaulding and David Maximo. It follows the character of Mike Tyson solving different mystery cases. The show, in all honesty, is a little mix of ‘Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?‘, ‘The Funky Phantom’, and ‘I Am The Greatest: The Adventures of Mohammad Ali’.
The show makes the audience nostalgic about the ’90s. This means the animated show neither has any dark sense of humor like many would say ‘Rick And Morty‘ does, nor it is completely kiddish. The show lingers somewhere in between and has the right proportion of thrills, comedy, and action.
After a solid four-season run, fans are asking whether there will be a ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries’ Season 5. We delve into that after sharing the show’s details.
Mike Tyson Mysteries Cast: Who’s in it?
Mike Tyson, the character, is the lead protagonist of the show and is voiced by Mike Tyson himself. Mike Tyson is a former boxing professional who retired in 2005. He has been the youngest boxer to win the heavyweight title and also, he reigned as the undisputed heavyweight champion.
In the show, Mike plays a retired boxer, who is delusional and unaware of reality. He confuses Elon Musk with Elton John and the grandmaster of chess with a grand-wizard. Well, his confusions do not just stop there, but let’s leave it at that.
‘Saturday Night Live’ star Norm Macdonald, plays the role of Pigeon. Pigeon is simply a talking bird, who is alcoholic and sex-deprived as it used to be a human formerly. Pigeon’s real name is Richard. He is obnoxious and not liked by the other members of Mike’s team.
Yung is voiced by Rachel Ramras, best known for her performance in ‘Nobodies‘. Yung is Mike’s adopted daughter. Yung is often mistaken as a boy, which also becomes one of the regular jokes of the show.
Marquess of Queensberry is voiced by Jim Rash, the popular comedian, and actor, best known for his work in ‘Community’. Marquess of Queensbury is the ghost of the real father of boxing. He is alcoholic, narcissistic, obnoxious and flamboyant. He is often seen giving sensible life advice to Mike.
