Adam West passed away on June 9, and his many friends and fans miss him deeply. Last night, the Los Angeles paid tribute to the actor who redefined Batman on screens big and small, by illuminating LA City Hall with the Bat-signal in front of a throng of adoring fans and mourners.
Adam West spent the last couple of decades as a key player on Family Guy, voicing the insane mayor of Quahog - Adam West. The part was literally written for West, who was famous for poking fun at himself and who loved to play up the many (false) reports of his mental instability that would periodically appear in the press during the post-Batman years. The reports finally stopped, but West kept the joke going with his hilariously self-effacing performances on over 100 episodes of Family Guy.
This Sunday (June 18, 2017), Family Guy will pay homage to West by re-airing the March 2017 episode "The Dating Game," one of many episodes featuring the mayor's wacky hijinks, along with a special title card honoring one of the most memorable voices of Quahog.
The episode will air on FOX this Sunday, June 18, at 9:30 PM.
