‘Family Guy’ Boss Seth MacFarlane Remembers His Mayor Adam West: ‘You’re Irreplaceable’

”He knew comedy, and he knew humanity,“ voice of ”Ted“ says in Saturday tribute

Seth MacFarlane, the creator of and voice behind many in “Family Guy,” remembered his friend and co-worker Adam West Saturday in a statement.

“‘Family Guy’ has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend,” MacFarlane wrote today. “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,” he continued. “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,” MacFarlane added. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have given, Mr. Mayor. You’re irreplaceable.”

Here’s how MacFarlane shared his sentiment:


West, who played himself on “Family Guy” as the mayor of MacFarlane’s fictional Quahog, died earlier today following a brief battle with leukemia. The actor who famously played Batman on TV in the 1960s was 88.
