Adam West the star of the campy, fun and nostalgic TV show Batman has passed away. West was 88.
Adam played the popular caped crusader Batman in the 1966 ABC-TV show that became a cult classic among fans. From the catchy opening theme to the ridiculous antics and humor the show showcased in its three-year run earned its place in the hearts of fans for years. While his post-batman career did not take off, later in life he contributed his talents to Family Guy voicing the iconic mayor of Quahog.
Adam West will be missed, but his contributions to our culture will forever be remembered.
