“Family Guy” is set to honor its delusional mayor.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the Fox cartoon will re-air the episode “The Dating Game” on Sunday in tribute to actor Adam West, who died Friday in Los Angeles. He was 88. It will run at 8:30 p.m. on Channel 40.

West supplied the voice for Quahog Mayor Adam West, who appeared in 111 episodes from 2000-17.

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter last weekend to remember his friend.

Mayor West is known for being delusional and wasting the taxpayers’ money. Some of his antics include marrying his right hand, believing that zombies exist to the point where he has graves cemented over, claiming that he’s composed of 95 percent helium and on one episode thinking his name is really “Adam We” after some of his Lite-Brite pieces come up missing.

“The Dating Game” first aired on March 5. In the episode, West buys a medieval-themed restaurant in an auction, which upsets the show’s main character, Peter Griffin, and his friends.
