'Family Guy' Creator Seth MacFarlane: Adam West Is 'Irreplaceable'
Everyone knows "Family Guy"? West voiced the mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island on a recurring basis since Season 2. The actor died June 9 at age 88, leaving fans everywhere in mourning, and Seth MacFarlane's show without its mayor.
MacFarlane, who voices many of the Fox show's characters himself, addressed the loss of West in a beautiful tribute:

"Irreplaceable" is right, but should fans take that literally for "Family Guy," that no new mayor will be coming to Quahog when Season 16 premieres? A TV series is small potatoes compared to the loss of human life, but the show must go on.
Of course, West was best known as Batman, and a few of the actors who played Batman honored their predecessor:
Adam West exemplified heroism. Kind, funny and an all around great guy. Thank you for showing us all how it's done. @therealadamwest
