Family Guy's Nine-Minute Tribute to Adam West Is Pure, Delightful Absurdity

By Katharine Trendacosta on at

Whether you like Family Guy or not, the use of Adam West as the mayor of Quahog was a surreal delight. The joke isn’t that West was once Batman. It’s just that this man, who happens to be named Adam West, is very weird.

I didn’t even realise how West’s moments are some of the only Family Guy memories I have. I remember the screaming contest vividly, the “Adam West” song, and the “this column is mine” moment. The tribute, filled with these moments, is a wonderful sendoff.
