Batman Farewell: Remembering Adam West



Once upon a time... on an ordinary
weeknight... in the year 1966...


I was two years old and my patient
mother was attempting to potty train me,
when suddenly, from the television set
in the living room, my keen toddler ears picked up 
 the opening music of a popular weekly show.

Off the little plastic potty chair I hopped, half naked,
my little feet running fast down the short hallway
from the bathroom to watch the
one and only
Batman!

And leaving my poor frustrated mother
screaming in my slippery wake!

In addition to hilarious weekly scrapes with
guest star villains and their gangs...

Batman was known to shake a pretty mean cape!



Batman A-Go-Go











Batman and Robin
Off on another crime-busting crusade!






It's been over fifty years since the television series,
"Batman" was aired weekly on prime time television.
Although there have been many different portrayals
of the Caped Crusader over the years, in my
heart the original Batman will always be
Adam West.












Adam West
Born William West Anderson
September 19, 1928 - June 9, 2017
May He Rest In Peace
