Animation on FOX has released a nine-minute reel of the late Adam West, paying tribute to the Batman actor who voiced the role of the Mayor of Quahog on the Seth Macfarlane created series.
West, best known for having starred in the 1960s Batman TV show as Bruce Wayne/Batman, died at the age of 88 after suffering from leukemia in early June. The actor had a long career which also included appearances on NBC’s Powerless, Robot Chicken, and The Fairly OddParents. He continued being a part of the DC universe that allowed him his rise to fame, which included him being the voice of Batman in the animated DC film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.
