In Memory of the Mayor of Quahog
July 18, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
Family Guy has released a tribute reel in memory of former Batman! star Adam West (1928-2017), who played a monumentally self-effacing version of himself as cartoon mayor of Peter Griffin’s fictional hometown of Quahog, Rhode Island. West made appearances in over 100 episodes of the series. Executive producer Steve Callaghan told Entertainment Weekly “The vocal performance and the specific comedic angle that he brought to the role were truly unlike anything he’d done before, and were such an enormous gift to the series and us as writers.” West obviously took great delight in bits here, including singing a song about his own name, playing poker with dogs and pardoning a frozen turkey. Family Guy is going ahead with three more episodes that West had already recorded parts for. —Eric Gould
