Unbeknownst to WB fans at New York Comic-Con this weekend, at the premiere panel (the last panel on Thursday night), they got treated to an extended clip of the new Mike Tyson Mysteries premiering on Adult Swim on 10/27 at 10:30pm ET.
As with most Adult Swim programming, it plays with dark comedic ridiculousness. Mike Tyson, along with a potty-mouthed pigeon (Norm MacDonald), his adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee (who looks like a Korean Velma played by Rachel Ramras), and a British ghost (Jim Rash), solves any mystery thrown his way. This cartoon looks like loads of fun.
From the Turner September 10th press release:
