by J. Weston PhippenArtwork by various artists on dA of Adam West, or Adam West as Bat Man:
June 10, 2017
Actor Adam West, whose portrayal in the 1960s of a lighter-version of Batman, a caped-crusader in tights, campy in the right ways with its “Wham” and “Pow” illustrations that popped into fight scenes, died on Saturday. He was 88.
Family members said West died of Leukemia. “Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans' lives. He was and always will be our hero,” West’s family said in a statement.
West’s depiction of Batman was iconic. It brought him to the top of pop culture in the 1960s, but it would also hold his acting career back for decades. He was born William West Anderson in Walla Wall, Washington, where he graduated from a small liberal arts school.
After serving in the Army, West moved to Hollywood.
There he appeared in TV shows like the popular western Bonanza. But it was his role as a James Bond-esque figure in a Nestle Quik commercial that brought him to the attention Batman’s producer.
...The show’s famous tag line at the end, “Same Bat-time! Same Bat-channel!” was just one of its many quirks. West’s co-star, Robin, the Boy Wonder, was played by Burt Ward, who West handpicked despite having no acting experience.
The show was over-the-top with its catchphrases—“Holy guacamole, Batman!” or “Holy Batrap, Batman!”
It was a much different take on the current-day versions of batman, with West battling the henchmen of the Penguin or the Joker to zany illustrations that popped onto screen: Kapow! Zlonk! Wham!
...In more recent years, as he embraced his past character, West appeared in TV shows like The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory, and he held a regular role as the voice of Quahog’s Mayor Adam West in Family Guy.
