R.I.P. Adam West

I am old enough to have watched the old Batman TV series when it originally aired, and the movie when it came out. I always enjoyed his square jawed, campy style. Since then, he appeared all over the place in person and with his voice, and I always enjoyed seeing or hearing him. Last year at the New York Historical Society I saw his amazing batmobile, with those goofy labels on the most prominent controls. On Big Bang Theory, he actually took part in a discussion with the gang about who had been the best Batman, now that so many have played him!

In his autobiography, he tells the story of how as a young actor starting out, he was filming on a Western in Spain, shooting a scene near a cave. When they finished up it was dusk, and so a cloud of bats swarmed out right in front of him. Then he went back to his hotel to get a call from his agent that he would play The Caped Crusader!

***Dah Dah Dah, Dah Dah Dah! Batman!***

Re: R.I.P. Adam West

The best batman I ever watched.
Goofy but appealing and with a unique sounding voice. When you heard him, you knew it was Batman

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Re: R.I.P. Adam West

My son recently discovered the Batman Series and his about 20 episodes in. When he heard the news on the radio he was very saddened. I remember it was one of the few shows we could watch at my grandmothers house in the summers.

Re: R.I.P. Adam West

His death turned this weekend into kind of a bummer for me. Been a while since I've rewatched, but I've got a lot of fond memories of his Batman from when I was little. Always loved seeing him pop up in voice roles and cameos as well.

Re: R.I.P. Adam West

I was always a Batman fan. To me, Adam West was Batman. Rest in peace.
