*Mike Tyson is getting his Scooby Doo on.

The boxer will appear as himself in animated form for “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” a new adult cartoon series in which he solves crimes with the help of a talking pigeon and a ghost.


The series has been picked up by Warner Bros. Studios and will debut on Adult Swim in October, reports WENN.

“They actually approached my wife, Kiki, and she told me about it. It was crazy from the beginning,” Tyson said. “She said, ‘It’s on Adult Swim’, and I thought it was about old, rich, white guys learning how to swim, hanging out at a lake or something. But then she told me, ‘It’s a cartoon, for grown-ups. You can curse. You can be yourself’.”


In the series, Tyson and his “Mike Tyson Mystery Team” respond to calls for help — delivered via messenger pigeon. The show’s characters are the “Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry,” Mike’s adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee and a pigeon who was once a man,” respectively voiced by Jim Rash (“Community”), Rachel Ramras and Norm MacDonald.

In the premiere, Tyson and his friends track down missing author Cormac McCarthy.
