He was a childhood hero that managed to retain my interest into adulthood via his hilarious role in "Family Guy" too.

Gah, listen to some of his recent podcast appearances on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast or the Nerdist. On paper 88 may seem a bit long in the tooth, but when you consider how vital and happy the guy seemed, it actually does feel a bit early. Really enjoyed that new animated Batman film that came out a few months back featuring the voices of most of the original crew. That series, along with Monkey, was a real cornerstone of my youth. Would take it a thousand times over any of Bats' dreary, monochrome recent incarnations.

I hope Quahog has a day of mourning/bank holiday in his respect.
I'm sure his death won't go unmentioned.

RIP 60's Batman and, of course, the wonderfully odd ball "Mayor West"

My favourite Holy is still probably, "Holy Priceless Collection of Etruscan Snoods, Batman!"
