Best known as Mayor Adam West on Adam West Family Guy, he was the soft-spoken mayor of the town of Quahog, Rhode Island. He appeared on a recurring basis from his first appearance in season 2 until his final appearance in season 17. Mayor West was characterized as an intense yet friendly, childish crackpot whose delusions often came at great expense and sometimes danger to citizens of Quahog. His psychotic whims included dispatching the entire Quahog police department to search for the fictional character Elaine Wilder from the film Romancing the Stone, or wasting council money on a solid gold statue of the Dig ‘Em frog and cementing coffins since he is afraid the dead will return as zombies.
Adam West passed away in Los Angeles, California, on June 9, 2017, following a brief battle with leukemia.
