Adam West (September 19, 1928 - June 9, 2017) was an American actor best known for his lead role in the Batman TV series (1966–1968) and the film of the same name. He was known for portraying eccentric characters, such as the fictionalized character of the same name on Family Guy.
His first work with Nickelodeon was voicing Captain Blasto in the Rugrats episode "Superhero Chuckie". He later appeared as Ken Schwinger, the principal, in several episodes of The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Most recently, he voiced a younger version of Mermaid Man in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Back to the Past". However, his most prominent role on Nick was on The Fairly OddParents, where he voiced a cat-obsessed version of himself famous for playing a superhero called Catman, to the point that he actually believes he is Catman, a parody of his role as Batman, and the effects of typecasting.
