"Of course I'm the real Batman. See, here's a picture of me with Robin."Hello old chums, I'm TV's Adam West. You may recognize me as the 1960s Batman. Once upon a time, I was considered a serious leading man. I was a handsome devil back in that day, as you can see here. I still am, as a matter of fact! However, I couldn't get serious work after Batman ended. I am currently known for portraying eccentric versions of myself. I embraced it and even have a trope named after me. Almost every role I've had since is either a parody of Batman the goofy superhero, Adam West the washed-up actor, or both at once (as in my role on The Fairly Oddparents).Or my role in Batman: The Animated Series "Beware The Gray Ghost", where I play a washed-up actor who can't get any decent work because everyone associates me with my role as a cheesy superhero.I played a washed-up superhero who turned out to be a deluded actor on Kim Possible. I played another deluded actor in the pilot for Lookwell, a Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel-produced pilot. In this version, I had formerly played a detective on TV and thought I could use my actor training to solve real crimes. (Incidentally, before Batman I co-starred in the third and final season of the crime drama The Detectives. No one ever remembers that!) I also played a super-powered pizza delivery boy in Meet the Robinsons.I played a goofy rendition of myself on The Simpsons, in which I drive the Batmobile from the show (which is now a broken down wreck), complain about the Michael Keaton Batman films [*taps his pecs* - "Pure. West."], and dance the "Batusi" while The Simpsons slowly back away. Also Johnny Bravo.I played the Chief of Police in Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.In the Histeria! episode "The Legion of Super Writers", I voiced a superhero-portrayed Ernest Hemingway. Currently, my biggest role is as the Cloudcuckoolander Adam West, Mayor of Quahog in Family Guy.Interestingly, I played the supervillain Breathtaker in the Black Scorpion TV series. Dr. Noah Goddard was an ordinary doctor until Black Scorpionís police father wound him in a shoot out. Breathtaker was born and years later, and he will take his life. So Breathtaker could be considered Black Scorpionís Arch-Enemy, because It's Personal. By the way, Black Scorpion is described as TV Series Batman + Ms. Fanservice. Oh, and as a bonus, Frank Gorshin (the Riddler) interpreted supervillain Clockwise.Bizarrely, I also voiced Mayor Grange, the Mayor of Gotham City in The Batman, which begs the question of why Christopher Nolan hasn't cast me in any of his versions of the Batman movies. Shame. (Bizarrely, you say?)I played superhero the Galloping Gazelle in the TV episode and video game of Goosebumps story Attack of the Mutant. In the TV version, the Galloping Gazelle was washed-up and bailed on the kid protagonist because he thought he was too old for the job.I even played a lawyer defending a rap star who made a video of himself whizzing on a schoolgirl in The Boondocks. In typical over-the-top West fashion, of course. It's like he.. I mean I.. don't even want to stop Adam Westing anymore.I played a cab driver in the low budget superhero spoof film Super Capers, and am easily the most watchable part in it. I just need to show Chris Nolan that I've still got star power in the movies like before. It's a crying shame he hasn't asked me to be a part of The Dark Knight Saga. I can do a great raspy voice.I appeared in 30 Rock as myself at Jack Donaghy's birthday party. After I flubbed the introduction and got thrown out, I complained that I was promised a sandwich and haven't received it. Silly me.Following the release of a Batman game, a host of the show X-Play visited me on the show.Recently, I provided the voice of Bruce Wayne's father Thomas in an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. As a bonus Julie Newmar voiced Martha Wayne. I later returned to provide the voice of Batman's Gentle Giant robot "Proto". Then I returned to my most famous role in Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders alongside two of my former co-stars.I also guest starred as Mermaid Man in an episode of Spongebob Squarepants.Fun Fact: I was offered the role of James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever, but I respectfully declined. Bond should always be played by a Brit. I also have a moose named Moose Wayne.Thanks to an initiative spearheaded by actor Ralph Garman, I've got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame now! Thanks, Ralph.Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and at the age of 88, on June 9th, 2017, it was my time to say goodbye. Although I no walk longer among you, I am still with you in spirit. And I am sure many of you pointed your Batsignals up at the sky so I could see them. Batman thanks you. And he shall live on in your hearts forever, old chums. I also left behind one last piece of me as Batman, as I had completed my work on Batman vs. Two Face, the sequel to Return of the Caped Crusaders, prior to my departure.But do keep reading TV Tropes, and make sure to spot my name! Same Bat-Article, same Bat-Index!
