There is an episode of Amazing Stories where the main character gets a magical remote control that makes every television show come to life. He presses one of the channels and none other than K.I.T.T. comes turbo boosting through his living room.
“Gimme maximum turbo thrust and blast me outta here, will ya!?”

I actually found the Amazing Stories clip: :good:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBSYTLSpP6c

The entire clip is amazing, and KITT bursts through the guy's wall towards the end of the clip (at 8:38)! Can someone transcript what KITT is saying? I cannot even hear what Dirk Benedict is saying near the beginning of the clip!

Let's not forget all the references on Robot Chicken.. Including the car race.
Family Guy had a "going to commercial" fanfare/dissolve to KI2T speeding through the desert.

I think it was used in the 2nd and 3rd seasons on TOS.

Cartoon Network stop animation series took a jab at Knight Rider the other night. In a race to the finish line, Michael and KITT took on many characters from TV and animation past. Chips, Speed Racer, Ghostbusters and Dukes of Hazzard. You can see how KITT and Michael placed in this video.

- Umm actually Knight Rider ripped them off as both films were made before Season 1 which was done in 1982/1983. Superman/Superman II was in 1978/1980 and The Car was the oldest of all dating back to 1977.

I had posted this in the Baywatch thread because I didn't see this one...
Hey Joe Huth,

I have another KR reference to add to your collection...

I was flipping through the channels and landed on Sabrina the Teenage Witch...
Yeah that show.

Anyway, I do not know episode titles so I cannot give you the name but it is the one where Sabrina taints the tea of Mr. Kraft to make him a teenager in the mind. Of course it goes bad and he just keeps acting younger and younger...


The scene is...

He rides into the school hallway on a bicycle and yells...

"Listen up B###heads, everyone has to turn in a report on last night's Team Knight Rider."

I nearly died laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!


It was crazy because I haven't watched that show in years and the only episode I see had this. :)
That is a computer not a sofa.......Knight of the Drones

A firsthand viewer of Knight Rider '08!
And I LOVED it!
