'Family Guy' pays tribute to late 'Batman' star Adam West

ANI  |  Los Angeles [USA] 

In the memory of late Adam West, American-TV series 'Family Guy' gave a picture paying tribute to the actor who played the role of Mayor in the show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 'In Loving Memory' preceded a rerun of 'The Dating Game,' an episode from the current season that featured West.

West played an outlandish and always hilarious version of himself on Family Guy. West's mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island, had been a regular character on the show since 2000.

Even, shortly after the actor's death, the show's creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter and shared that he was devastated by the news.

He wrote, "Family Guy has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend," MacFarlane said in a statement on Twitter. "Adam West was a joy to work with, and the kind of guy you always wanted to be around. His positivity, good nature, and sense of fun were undeniable, and it was always a big jolt of the best kind of energy when he walked in to record the show."

Adding, "He knew comedy, and he knew humanity. I am beyond fortunate to have had the privilege of working with him, and he will be profoundly missed by all of us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have given, Mr. Mayor. You're irreplaceable."

Adam West died at the age 88 on June 9.

West is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
