Go go gadget Attack mode!

I posted this at the end of another post but thought I'd add it here as well. Anyone thought of the similarities of KI3T's transformations and Inspector Gadget's car in the old cartoon? Some of the younger guys might not remember, but you could probably find it on Youtube. Just wondering which you prefer, KI3T's or the Gadget car's "transformations"?

The van to Mustang transformation in A Hard Day's Knight certainly looked like it.

I loved Inspector Gadget and yes I do now realize what your saying, it does seem similar!

Sure, why not? There's not going to be much else to talk about until next week anyway. Not like this is the first time the Inspector Gadget thing has been brought up though. :P

I loved Inspector Gadjet as a kid but had forgotten his Gadjet Mobile. I had forgotten that it could transform into a van.

So I did a little YouTube video search and found a whole episode in 3 videos of a car race between him and Dr. Claw. It was fun.

The similarities between Inspector Gadjet and KR are astounding.

It's kind of like a cross between KR and Get Smart.
And someone should report that Dr. Claw to the SPCA, EPA, and some workers union.

Even when I was little, when it was going from van to pursuit car and the back roof comes down all the way, I always wondered how Brain didn't get crushed.

Obviously they need to do a better job with the morphing CGI.

I'm able to appreciate more transformation as long as we are'nt going to see something like 'Tubo Teen' (another animated series)...You don't remember the plot?
Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo_Teen
...Mike and KITT fused together... :?

I had never seen Turbo Teen. That was really weird watching that transformation.

You are probably too young to remember it.. It was on about the same time as Knight Rider.. Actually i always thought it was created to capture the fans of KR. A talking , self driving car, and it's a T/A too.

Wow, I forgot how much I loved Inspector Gadget, and now I know why the whole KITT transforming/morphing into other vehicles seems so familiar...

As for Turbo Teen, I actually liked that show...I remember how I thought it would be neat if I could change into a car.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

As neat as Turbo-Teen seems to be, I'd just freak out if Mike and KI3T, or Michael and KITT get fused together. Unless it's a comedy special.

Maybe they will swap minds. That sounds like it would be funny.

At first you might think, how can a human and a talking car swap minds, but remember in the Knight Rider 2000 movie one of the original KITT's chips was implanted in that woman, and then they could mindmeld using the shifter knob. Point being, stranger things have happened (on TV, anyways).

The first thing KI3T would do, I bet, is go make out with Sarah. Or Zoe. Or both.

I dunno, he's always seemed a little too interested in Mike's relationships to me.
