Happy Birthday Adam West!!!

My favorite live-action Batman performer. I really love the way he delivered the word "nonsense", he always made it sound very serious, yet it still sounded like a screwball, which was expected from the show. I also loved the more standard Batman he played in The Super Powers Team. So full of torment as well as full of anger, it was impressive to hear him play his Batman.

Of course, because of his Batman, he always gives a lot of enjoyment to the audience with his typical screwball straight guy attitude (whether his playing himself, his Mayor West character in Family Guy and every Batman parody a show can come up with, like Catman).

And his Gray Ghost role was pretty neat. I always been a fan of hearing a previous Batman performer interact with a newer performer (the first time this happened was in The Legendary Super Powers Show story Island of the Dinosoids, in which Olan Soule's Professor Stein and West's Batman have an entire scene in interacting with themselves), and Beware the Gray Ghost was really enjoyable because of that.

Thanks for all the fun moments you gave us and those that you will give us in the future.

Happy Birthday Adam West!

He has one of the coolest and distinct voices I've ever heard. He's pretty epic as the 60's Batman, a show that is so cheesy that it's good. But as Starscreamsfan has said below me Adam was very impressive at voicing a more serious Batman in the Super Powers Team cartoon episode The Fear which was the first cartoon ever to tackle Batman's origins.

With that said his career while it did get him to be typecast so much, it is amusing when he goes Adam Westing. Seriously his appearances on Family Guy, The Simpsons and Fairly Odd Parents were hilarious, even if the shows nowadays suck.

Then of course there was his role as The Gray Ghost on Batman the Animated Series which more or less was a role tailored for him but it's really fun to watch the old Batman and the (then) newer Batman Kevin Conroy get to team up and fight side by side. it's one of the best episodes in the show too. I also enjoyed some of the casting gag references in other shows he's done like Nighthawk and the young Mermaid Man.

Seriously this guy is awesome.

Those who think he can't play a more serious Batman should check out this episode:

Adam West's best performance as the Caped Crusader, IMO.

My favorite role of his is the Gray Ghost. It was based off his life and showed he can do more serious roles. I always respected him a little more because of that role.
I do like his comical roles

@Music Meister He did do a more serious Batman though. Watch the Super Powers Team episode The Fear.
