Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has led an interesting life: youngest heavyweight champ of all time, a prison sentence, ear biting in the ring, ‘The Hangover’ and a reality show in which he raised pigeons. His next step: a new animated series on Adult Swim called ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries,’ which will feature Tyson solving crimes with a cursing pigeon….Yes, it’s mid-May, not April 1st. We checked.

Adult Swim, the network that brought fans oddly irreverent series like ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force,’ ‘Robot Chicken’ and ‘Metalocalypse,’ will use both an animated and live-action Tyson to solve mysteries. The premise reads like ‘Scooby Doo’ meets ‘Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids’ in a room full of hallucinogenic drugs, which sounds terrible yet compelling. It would be funny if all the villains looked like Don King. The show is expected to debut next season.

Tyson just completed his ‘Undisputed Truth’ tour, which featured the champ traveling to small theaters and stages for a frank discussion on his vacillating life arc. It’s difficult to imagine a sports personality who has risen as high — and fallen so low — as Tyson. Only time will tell if this new animated series will be Tyson’s last turn in the spotlight.
