Family Guy honored the late Adam West on Sunday night with a picture paying tribute to the show’s mayor before the episode began.
The “In Loving Memory” preceded a rerun of “The Dating Game,” an episode from the current season that featured West.
The Batman star died June 9. He was 88.
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.
Shortly after the actor’s death, show creator Seth MacFarlane said he was devastated by the news.
“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.”
Continued MacFarlane: “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.”
