Good night Adam West and thank you for my childhood

But it was his role as the Caped Crusader in the 1966-68 ABC series "Batman" that defined West's career. It might be a bit of a stretch to say, but there's a reason why West's series was beloved and something like Batman And Robin misses the mark.

The comic's creator, Bob Cain, said: 'I suppose the homosexuals like the TV show because of those tight outfits Adam West and Burt Ward wear'. Adam West gave us a Batman who was dedicated to justice without it having to cost him his soul. He took on frequent roles, often as a voice-over actor, playing himself or some version of the Batman character.

Actor Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the series, paid tribute to West on Saturday, saying he was was "bright, witty and fun to work with".

We'll miss you Adam.

More recently, he did the voice of nutty Mayor Adam West in the long-running "Family Guy" series.

Adam West, who portrayed Batman in the campy 1960s TV series, has died after a bout with leukemia. Batman and Robin were almost turned into frozen desserts - Frosty Freezies - in an episode with famed film director Otto Preminger as Mr Freeze. "You know, just as he's about to put her in (jail), Batman says to Catwoman, 'You give me curious stirrings in my utility belt.' That's amusing stuff". A real gent. Once when I was a kid we found ourselves in front the Batmobile.
