Adult Swim says it's turning Mike Tyson into a cartoon detective.
The network announced a new animated series Friday called ''Mike Tyson Mysteries'' that will feature the retired boxing champ.
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.
Among other programming planned for its 2013-14 season, Adult Swim announced ''Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II.'' It's a second spinoff of the cable network's long-running stop-motion sketch comedy series.
Not to be outdone, Fox has impulsively responded with plans to create a new animated show starring Leon Spinks for their Sunday "Animation Domination" lineup. The show, tentatively titled "Neon Leon and the Galactic Defenders," features Spinks as the superhero alter ego of a young child entrusted with the protection of the Earth. When extraterrestrial forces invade our world, little Benny Butkus holds aloft his magic ring and transform into NEON LEON, a sixty-year-old ex-drug addict boxer. Armed with nothing but badly dulled reaction time and pugilistic skills long since degraded, it's Neon Leon's mission to shield the people of Earth from an alien menace innumerable and preserve the American way in the face of this unstoppable, otherworldly invasion.

Wait, really? They won't pick up the MC Chris Cartoon, but they're doing this?
The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

This has the potential to be great, but only if the guys who made Wonder Showzen and Xavier: Renegade Angel are handling this.
