Adam West, who died earlier this summer at the age of 88 following a battle with leukemia, was remembered by many of those who worked with the former television Batman and at San Diego Comic-Con, The Big Bang Theory executive producer Bill Prady, continued the tributes to the Bright Knight by sharing a funny story about West's appearance as a fictionalized version of himself on The Big Bang Theory.
"I have a really good Adam West story. So, he was on our 200th episode and after our table read, he called me over. He had some questions about the script and he had a line in the script where he told Leonard and Koothrappali, 'Don't ring my doorbell or my poodles will go crazy,'" Prady recalled. "Adam said to me, 'Do you think I could have a tougher dog, like a Rottweiler?' And I said, 'Well, Mr. West, you could, but I don't think it's as funny.' And he said, 'Well, I have poodles in real life, so I guess it's fine.'"
West became a cultural icon for his portrayal of Batman on ABC's Batman television show which was a surprise hit upon its premiere in 1966. In addition to his guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory, West also played Quahog's Mayor Adam West on Family Guy.
