Adam West Gets Star On Walk Of Fame

Recalling my days as a youngster with an old bath towel tied neatly around my neck, shouting “BAM”, “POW” AND “ZONK” as I efficiently took down the bad guys.  I idolized Adam West as millionaire Bruce Wayne.  The series, although short-lived, will be well-remembered by this guy. 

Adam West, who played Batman on the beloved 1960s TV series, received the 2,468th star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Guinness World Records Museum.

West, who also lends his voice to Quahog’s Mayor on “Family Guy,” was joined at the event by guest speakers Seth McFarlane, who produces the animated TV series, and fellow voice actor Ralph Garman. The Batmobile even made an appearance at the event.

“We are thrilled to honor Adam with this prestigious award. Fans have been waiting for this special day for many years,” Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President Leron Gubler, who hosted the event, said in a statement. “Adam West fired up the billion-dollar Batman franchise: the golden years and the classic Batman, the Bright Knight. He deserves his place of honor on our famed Walk of Fame.”

The 83-year-old West’s career has spanned more than 50 years.
