Better than a Bat-key to the city of Los Angeles, the inimitable Adam West ZZZZZWAP!'d his way into a Bat-star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce presented West with star no. 2,468 in front of The Guinness World of Records Museum, (where he holds the record for "Most Appearances as Batman") during a morning ceremony with a special guests Seth McFarlane, Ralph Garman, and The Batmobile.

Known to some as the voice of Quahog’s Mayor on Family Guy, West began his career as a radio DJ, made his feature film debut opposite Paul Newman, and played a variety of television parts before taking on the title role of the ABC’s series, BATMAN.
