Episode 83: Athlete Cartoons

This week, join Jonathan as he celebrates the Mike Tyson Mysteries and all the previous athlete cartoons Tyson sends up each week. In this episode, Jonathan discusses 1977’s I Am the Greatest: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali, Mr. T (1983-1986), and Pro Stars (1991). What is it about the athlete that makes us want to see him in a cartoon environment? Why do we so readily make nonsensical cartoon spinoffs of beloved television characters? These answers and more on today’s new episode.
