Adam West is a true American icon. From his humble beginning on a wheat ranch in Walla Walla, Washington, he skyrocketed to fame in Hollywood, pursuing an extraordinary career in entertainment that has spanned half a century. His role as Batman in the classic television series and feature of the same name continues to be seen throughout the world more than 40 years after its debut. He has a multitude of motion picture, theater, and TV credits to his name, lending his voice to animated characters in such well-known series as Family Guy, The Simpsons, Rugrats, Animaniacs, and many others. He is also the author of two books, Back to the Batcave and Climbing the Walls.
Adam lends his support to numerous charities and won $250,000 on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, on behalf of an organization supporting underprivileged women and children in Idaho.
In his own words, “Sometimes, when I think about my over the past 40 years, it is hard to remember all of it. Of course, Batman has been an important part of it, and recently, Family Guy. Thanks to your loyalty, both shows have become an enormous success, and Batman has become iconic all over the world. You have no idea how much I appreciate this. We worked hard to make the Caped Crusader innovative, fun and fresh. The colorful characters were brought to life by some great and amazing guest stars. The same thing is happening with Family Guy. When I think of the other TV series, the TV pilots and all those years of movies and stage work I have done, they fade a bit from memory. But I am able to continue my work because of the enormous and positive reaction you’ve given to Batman and Family Guy."
