Which classic Western is Adam West in?

Before Batman, he was a go-to Western guest star.


Adam West debuted on television in a 1954 episode of the anthology series The Philco Television Playhouse. The episode happened to be called “The Joker” – ironic, considering West’s most famous role.

But before he played the Caped Crusader, West turned up in numerous Westerns. His good-looks and charm worked well for both heroic allies and treacherous villains. He played the real-life outlaw Doc Holliday in three different shows in 1959, two of which you’ll see below.

West played DOC HOLIDAY 3 times at Warner Brothers/ABC - the other was an episode of COLT 45. Also his appearance on THE BIG VALLEY was his first TV guest spot after BATMAN had ended...several months earlier!

10/10. He had the fastest Batarang in the west.

I've seen that BIG VALLEY episode with him in it. It's a bummer that Lee Majors didn't appear in it with him. That would have awesome! Who else agrees?

I've heard he had a very good sense of humor off camera. Seeing him in a cowboy hat proves it.

West was to suave to pull off the dirty cowboy look in #9

Photo # 9 -
He looks very 'girly-man' in the blouse.

The thing that always tickled me was how "Family Guy" made Adam West the mayor of Quahog. The character's name was Adam West, his voice was done by Adam West, he was drawn to resemble Adam West, but they never actually said that the mayor was supposed to be the actor who had played Batman on TV. They even had a couple of cutaway gags where West voiced Batman, but those were separate and apart from the mayor role.

#1,#2,#4, and #9 were easy. I suspect a high percentage of quiz takers got #5 right. (I didn't) The rest were just guesses. Lucky I got 7 right.

Adam West was a handsome guy, but who could forget those shoulders in #3 ? Holy guacamole Batman !

You mean Clint Walkers shoulders, West is on the right.

Yes definitely.

Quizzes like this are a little unfair I think just showing a screen shot without showing a main character or even something in the background showing a towns name or anything.

Never seen an METV quiz featuring so many shows that have never aired on METV. (Virginian, Lawman, Sugarfoot and Cheyenne though that show now airs on H & I.

Most of them don’t air now but once did. I’ve never seen sugarfoot although he is a character on the show Cheyenne

I agree. I got 6/10 correct with a lot of guesses. Never watched Cheyenne or Sugarfoot. Never even heard of Laramie, Lawman, or Bronco. Some questions were easy because they included one of the main characters. Others didn't show enough background to indicate the show they came from.

Neither agreeing or disagreeing, but the quiz was about classic westerns Adam "West" ( lol there's a little pun in his last name), was in, not what "MeTV" westerns did he appear in. I like when they do a quiz like this, as it challenges historical knowledge, (not bad every once in a while,) JMO.

9/10 I guessed on #7, #8, and #9, missing #8. I've only heard of "Laramie" on #8, so that was my guess. I liked him in "The Big Valley" episode (#4).
richardkel Peter_Falk_Fan 26 months ago
One of my favorite episodes too.

Holy hotfoot! I only got 4 right! But then, I hadn't seen too many of those Westerns before I saw Mr. West on "Batman."
