R.I.P. Adam West. Thank You For My Childhood

He was Batman

He was most famous for playing Batman in the 1966 series. Growing up, there were many marathons of this show on a channel that I don't believe exists anymore. He even starred a Batman in the 1966 film and reprise the role in the 2016 Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders! Once a Batman, always a Batman!

He was Mayor Adam West of Quahog, Rhode Island

This man was THE MAYOR! MAYOR WEST! Often characterized as being a soft-spoken crackpot, dangerous and unstable, but he was a Mayor that I think we all could get behind. He stole so many scenes in Family Guy. I believe some of the most quotable moments come from his character.

Here is links to watch:

He was Catman

Remember The Fairy OddParents? Well I do, and he was Catman, a parody of his 1966 Batman.

Fun facts about this role is that he is the first person to guest star as himself in the show, The second one is Jay Leno.

Once a Batman, always in Batman Projects!

After the 1966 Batman Series, it was not long until he began appearing in other Batman Projects.

He was almost portrayed Thomas Wayne in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman.

He was Simon Trent, a washed-up actor who used to play a superhero in a TV series called The Gray Ghost, in the 1992 Batman: The Animated Series

He was Mayor Marion Grange in the 2004 animated series, The Batman.

Adam West as Adam West !

It should come to no surprise that Adam West enjoyed playing himself! Especially in the 2003 Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt, where him and his co-star portray themselves searching for the stolen Batmobile.
