Mike is a terrible driver and although they’ve all been accidents, he’s killed a lot of people. But when he discovers almost all of them were astronauts, Mike decides there’s only one logical explanation: He must be part of a secret government plot to kill astronauts, because of something they saw on the moon, something the government doesn’t want us to know! Literally before giving this theory a second thought, Mike steals a rocket and blasts off for the moon. In the end Mike learns from his auto insurer that he hasn’t been killing astronauts after all. It was a clerical error and most of the deaths were astronomers. And there can’t be a secret government plot to kill astronomers, right?

    The show nails a stellar one-two punch, playing the rapid-fire barbs exchanged between the pigeon and Queensberry against Tyson's straight-ahead buzz-saw gags.

  • Diane Werts

    Mike Tyson Mysteries is highbrow lowbrow lampoon, alternately smart and stupid, dizzy and disgusting.

  • Allison Keene

    The series' humor is both audacious and intelligent, and the combination of that familiar Warner Bros. animation style coupled with modern references (all through a sendup of the style's original formulas) leaves no mystery for Mike to solve.

  • Robert Lloyd

    It is amiably absurd and mildly profane, entertaining in a dry, droll way.

  • Rob Owen

    The first episode is fairly entertaining in an absurdist way.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Those who have willingly accepted Tyson back into the cultural mainstream--as an item of kitsch or sheer fascination--might wind up scratching their heads over the series’ motivation, which, as the episodes are constructed, feels like the entire point. And while there’s precedent for that, it feels like slim compensation even in such a modest package.
