Adam West (1928-2017) was an American actor primarily known for starring in the 1966-1969 Batman TV show as the titular character. Mr. West found himself so closely associated with the role that he subsequently had difficulty finding more serious work.
Experiment #604 first premiered during the Turkey Day marathon in 1994 , which was also hosted by West. West later thanked the cast and crew for roasting that movie.
West later enjoyed a career resurgence, often appearing in roles that parody his famous persona. He performed many cartoon voice-overs, including for the popular animated TV comedy Family Guy as an exaggerated version of himself. West also appeared as a guest on the Cartoon Network talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
Mr. West was active and vital until the very end of his life. He passed away in June of 2017 at the age of 88 due to leukemia.
