60’s Batman Adam West Dies

 

60’s Hit TV series Batman, Adam West, has died aged 88 after a battle with leukaemia.
The Batman TV series, with its onscreen fight-scene graphics of Wham! and Pow! became an unexpected hit. West and his co-star Burt Ward, who played Batman’s sidekick Robin, won widespread acclaim.

West was born in 1928 in Walla Walla, Washington state, and began his acting career in Hawaii in the 1950s.

West always aspired to make a positive impact on his fans. The Batman TV series, with its onscreen fight-scene graphics of Wham! and Pow! became an unexpected hit.

After struggling for years without a steady job, the good-natured actor reached a new level of fame when he accepted an offer to voice the mayor of Quahog — named Adam West; how’s that for a coincidence! — on Seth MacFarlane’s long-running Fox animated hit Family Guy.

West and his co-star Burt Ward, who played Batman’s sidekick Robin, won widespread acclaim. West died peacefully in Los Angeles after a brief battle with leukaemia, family said.

He is survived by his wife, Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
