Original Knight Rider Fonts

Post by CamaroMan » Sat Aug 25, 2012 7:11 pm

Hi,

I am new to this site. I grew up with "Knight Rider" and it will always be one of my all-time favorite shows ever! :)

Anyway, because I am new this topic, or subject, has probably been stated or discussed before. However, I have only been able to find some posts concerning the fonts of the 2008 re-boot series.

My question is, does anyone know what the font of the episode titles in the original series is? The name of the show had sort of a "gothic" style to it...but the episode titles had more of a "computer-style" text to them. Does anyone know or have an idea of what that font was, or something very similar? Thanks! :kitt:

paulie,

Thanks for the font you provided. That is the font, I believe, for the actual title logo of the show...you're right. But, I'm actually looking for the font of the episode titles. They did not use the more "gothic" look, but were more computer/digital like. Does anyone know what font that was, or something very similar?

I believe you are looking for "Handel Gothic"

I think you're right! I found it at fonts101.com and downloaded to my computer. Thank you so much, neps! :D I've been looking for it for several years. It's awesome I finally have it. :good:

This site is pretty awesome, did not know about it until recently. I lived "Knight Rider" growing up and it's cool to find a site this extensive dedicated to the whole franchise. :)
