TV Legend and Batman star Adam West passed away Friday, June 9. He was 88 years old.
West is widely know for the 2.5 seasons he spent as Batman on the 1960s ABC series of the same name. The show was known for its brightly colored dialogue balloons representing fight scenes and different camera angles. The role cemented West into TV legend status.
In his later life, West’s voice has graced a wide-variety of series including The Simpsons, Futurama and Kim Possible. None is more memorable than West’s role as the voice the mayor of Quahog (also named Adam West) on Fox’s Family Guy since 2000. This has since given West a wave of new popularity. West has also appeared on screen as himself on 30 Rock and The Big Bang Theory.
Mr. West you will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace Batman.
