I have some very shocking and sad news to share with you this morning. TMZ reports and confirms that TV star and veteran actor Adam West has passed away at the age of 88, after a short battle with leukemia.

Along with his on screen work, Adam was also a successful voice-over artist for his work in The Simpsons, Futurama, Histeria!, Kim Possible and Johnny Bravo, but he is mostly well known for his work in Family Guy, on which he played Mayor Adam West, the lunatic mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island. His role gave him a new wave of popularity since Batman:
He also appeared in many episodes of Nickelodeon‘s cartoon, The Fairly OddParents, as a cat-obsessed version of himself, who is famous for playing a superhero called Catman, and who actually believes he is Catman.
