After his retirement from boxing, Tyson had a disaster of identification, pronouncing in an interview with USA Today, “My whole life has been a waste – I’ve been a failure. I just want to escape. I’m really embarrassed with myself and my life… I want to get this part of my life over as soon as possible. In this country nothing good is going to come of me. People put me so high; I wanted to tear that image down.”
Mike would undergo a couple of marriages, struggle habit, generally tend to his pigeons, in finding god, cross vegan on Ellen, get arrested a couple of extra instances, write a pair books, and, in fact, celebrity in The Hangover as he sought to outline his existence post-boxing. When Robot Chicken creator/actor Hugh Davidson pitched the theory about developing an Adult Swim animated display starring Mike as himself, Mike mentioned, “When (Davidson) first approached me about the project, I was a little apprehensive because the pay wasn’t much and the concept was really odd. What was I going to do? And I had no idea what Adult Swim was. At first, I thought it was a bunch of old, rich senior citizen white guys, learning how to swim in an exotic lake.”
Mike would change his tune once he realized the kind of creative freedom that comes with making an Adult Swim show – namely that they allow cursing in excess. After seeing early sketches, he said, “This looks good. It looks like a real cartoon. So then, I celebrated my participation. Now, when they call me to do the show, I run to it because I know it’s gonna be sensational. Before, I just thought it was going to be bulls—.”
