That caught me off guard. I know he led a good long life, but for some reason the idea of an Adam Westless world never occurred to me.

Adam West was wonderful and had fantastic comedic chops.  If you haven't seen it, check out Lookwell!, a TV pilot written by Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel.  In it, West plays a hasbeen TV actor who is delusional both about his abilities and the belief that he can solve crimes as well as the fictional TV detective he has portrayed.  It's absolutely delightful.

I just ordered a model of the 1966 Batmobile, haven't built a car model since I was a little kid, back when I watched the show a lot when it was in reruns, so kind of fitting...
