Adam West made a special appearance on the 200th episode of The Big Bang Theory. During a table read, he requested to change a line about his poodles to a tougher breed like Rottweilers, but ultimately agreed with co-creator Bill Prady that the original line was funnier. West had a blast appearing on the show and enjoyed working with younger actors. He found the rhythms of the sitcom easy to pick up and adapted his speech pattern to play himself, which he considered the most difficult role. Fans agree that West's cameo was a natural fit for the show.
