Saturday Night Live star Norm MacDonald died at the age of 61 today and fans of Mike Tyson Mysteries are sharing their favorite moments on social media. The adult swim show is one of the more random entries for a network that prides itself on being left-field. MacDonald actually voices the Pigeon on the show as he travels along with a fictionalized version of the former boxing phenom, his daughter, and the Marquess of Queensbury. It's a very wild romp, especially when the comedian gets to toss those zingers out. His interplay with Jim Rash's ghostly father of boxing is especially. But, Twitter is always a fountain of wonderful callbacks and today's been no different in that regard. Luckily, Mike Tyson Mysteries is available on adult swim's website and some episodes on HBO Max so people are getting in with all the best moments as the entire Internet pays tribute to a legend.
RIP Norm McDonald man. Found out about him from Mike Tyson Mysteries and loved his work ever since. pic.twitter.com/no9BVfP6ru— Jates (@JatesMB) September 14, 2021
adult swim describes the show:
"In Mike Tyson Mysteries, a new half-hour animated adult comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets … by solving mysteries! The series also features the voices of Norm Macdonald (SNL, Norm), Rachel Ramras (The Looney Tunes Show), and Oscar® winner Jim Rash (Community)."

Norm was just hysterical
All I can suggest after the terrible news of Norm's death is that you should immediately watch Mike Tyson Mysteries. Macdonald as Pigeon is his most perfect role ever. pic.twitter.com/NXJiliui8F— Tom Ross (@Tommy_Slick) September 14, 2021

Respect to the GOAT
I first saw Norm Macdonald perform as Death in Family Guy, and from then on I really liked his standup as well as his comedic timing with Mike Tyson Mysteries.
I'm really sad to hear his passing. pic.twitter.com/f8KvTOKtwd— DaftPina (@DaftPina) September 14, 2021

Don't knock it
Let's not forget Norm MacDonald's brilliant work as an alcoholic foul-mouthed pigeon on "Mike Tyson Mysteries." Stole every show (though Mike was great too): https://t.co/z8wi8iurAz— Tom Jackman (@TomJackmanWP) September 14, 2021
