Turbo Teen and Knight 4000

Post by Keon2005 » Sun Jun 04, 2006 5:47 pm

Hey has it ever crossed anyone's mind that the Knight 4000 voice modulator may have been originated from Turbo Teen's.

Actually, I haven't. And I am shocked that someone else would remember that show besides DaveMcFly and me :p

I'm sure that he has some video clips somewhere...

I actually remember that show too! Didn't he turn into a red sportscar? I remember that his fists would form into the front tires and his face would morph into the front of the car. I'd love to see that again!

Yeah It does look similar to the K400 voice display. But the K4000 one animated differently, Turbo's looked more like an ociloscope (cant spell it). As for the car in the toon TT was an combination of a 80s firebird/trans am with a mix of same era 300ZX car, mostly the dash and steering wheel and the way the rear roof secton was angled forward instead of the more vertical design of the Fbodies (what the name of the camaro/firebird platform for those who dont know ;) )
