Adam West's quotes

  • Before I was limited to playing leads in low-budget movies. The series has given me the exposure - God knows - so that perhaps I would now be considered for important pictures, which is what I'm after.
  • [If he was worried about playing Batman]: I was worried at first. I was afraid that my own identity might be submerged in the trappings of a freak in tights. But then I realized I should be able to make the craze work to my advantage.
  • [When responded if he sat in the bar]: No, I'll sit at the bar. I don't want to be conspicuous.
  • But of course, it's up to me to make whatever roles I play convincing and believable.
  • [In 2003] That was a reference to Batman drinking the mickey in that first episode and him doing the Batusi. I'm always asked, "Do the Batusi!".
  • [In 1998] There's no Bat gadget better than a seat belt for safety.
  • [In 1966] Batman must be played with utter conviction. There is a line which I must follow, between satirizing the character and playing it dead-serious.
  • [on one of his hobbies] It's important to us. Wetumpka isn't considered a great golf school, but this would be a great way to go out. We've got some young guys who need to keep getting better.
  • [on returning to the role that made him famous] It's dramatized to an extent, but most of it really did happen. All good comedy is based on truth. Now they're saying we're a wonderful comedy team. What were we before?
  • Unless the thinking of the major producers has become senile, they can perceive that I'm not Batman.
  • [Who told spectators The Penguin was a villain on Batman (1966)]: Robin and I were in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner in the Batcave when we got word the Penguin might be in Houston so we rushed over.
  • [In 1989] Who can say it's a mistake, but I know from my mail, and I get thousands of letters from Batman fans, that they resent it.
  • [His thoughts on the effect Batman (1966) has had on his life] In a lot of people's mind, I AM Batman, and that's been kind of a two-edged sword.
  • [In 1997] I could even wear my old tights, after getting all the mothballs out of it, and come back in the original Batmobile.
  • [In 1995] That typecasting is a mean, long-fanged yellow dog that grabbed my leg about three in the morning at least once a week. It was tough to deal with.
  • If you hang around long enough, they think you're good. It's either my tenacity or my stupidity, I'm not sure which.
  • [on some of his ideas for stories on Batman (1966)] My Bruce Wayne would have been romancing Catwoman with a brandy snifter full of milk. Then he would have said something silly, like "Man cannot live on milk alone.".
  • But I am simple in that I no longer feel the need to walk on a red carpet. I am a private person. I don't need a lot of company. And I find it really, really difficult to talk about myself.
  • When fans ask me for advice, here's what I tell them: "Remain an optimist."
  • If I pick up a telephone and make an international call, the operator knows my voice immediately, as does everybody else.
