Mike Tyson Mysteries: Season One Uncensored (2015/Adult Swim/Warner Bros. DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: D Episodes: B

An adult cartoon with an a Saturday Hanna-Barbera morning cartoon feel, The Mike Tyson Mysteries is pretty hilarious with ten episodes making up its first season. The famous boxer is aided by his best friend who happens to be an alcoholic pigeon who used to be human (voiced by Norm MacDonald), his adopted Asian daughter Yung Hee (Rachel Ramraos) and the ghost of the Marquess of Queensbury (Jim Rash). In each episode, they embark on a fun adventure aimed to please adults while throwing back to the old era of Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Foul mouthed but fun, the team end up helping Cormac McCarthy finish his novel by fighting Chupacabra that are attacking his horses in the opener The End, or finding the answer to the question of whether or not magic is real? My favorite episode is Night Moves where Yung Hee's new boyfriend turns out to believe he is a werewolf and Yung Hee's is scratched during her date. The show is worth a watch and completely random in its storytelling, which makes it fun.

Episodes include The End, Ultimate Judgment Day, Heavyweight Champion Of The Moon, Is Magic Real?, Mite Tyson, A River Runs Through It Into A Heart Of Darkness, House Haunters, Night Moves, and Ty-Stunned.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the shows looks and sounds fine on DVD, yet could benefit to a Blu-ray upgrade. No extras.
