Adam West (born September 19, 1928) portrayed Batman in the 1960s Batman television series , voiced Ghost Simon Trent/The Gray Ghost in The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series, Grange (The Batman) Marion Grange in Batman The Batman, and Thomas Wayne in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode Chill of the Night! and Proto Bat-Bot in Plague of the Prototypes!

West's 1960's portrayal of Batman is iconic, and his approach and the approach of the Batman show of that period is cited as a major influence on this series' version of Batman, making him an easy choice to voice Batman's father, since he is the 'father' of Batman's career on television. West has at times resented the lack of work his easy recognition as Batman has brought him, but never the character himself, voicing Batman twice in animated form in 1977's The New Adventures of Batman (featuring the first animated appearances of Bat-Mite) and in the final two seasons of The Super Friends series, called Super Powers ironically replacing and yet co-starring with longtime Batman voice actor Olan Soule, who played Batman from the time of the 1960's Filmation cartoons onward, including the 70's teaming with Scooby-Doo.
