Adam West will always be Batman, but for a whole lot of modern-day fans, he might be better known as the mayor of Quahog — and now Family Guy is saying goodbye as only it can. With jokes, weirdness and a whole lot of love.
Before West’s death, he left behind a decent bit of recording work for the upcoming 15th season of Family Guy, where he plays the town’s positively bonkers mayor. Executive producer Steve Callaghan said they plan to keep pretty much all that footage in the show in honor of West’s hilariously off-kilter performance.
So in honor of everything West has done for Family Guy, the network has put together an epic, 9-minute compilation of his highlights — and there are plenty of them to go around. The supercut runs the gamut from West’s first appearance all the way back in Season 2 (where he just thanks the residents of Quahog for an awkward amount of time), his Lite Brite adventures, that time he thought he was a tomato, his epic cosplay as Grand Moff Tarkin in the Star Wars parody “Blue Harvest” and a whole lot more.
Despite the fact that he was a legend, his work on Family Guy is a hilarious reminder that West was never too cool to make fun of himself for a good joke. May he rest in peace, and here’s hoping Mayor Adam West’s administration comes to a fitting end.
