** The Japanese-dubbed version is as hammy as the Brazilian dub (You can watch a clip of that dub in the movie ''Mr. Baseball'').
** The 2008 revival was immensely well received in some European countries, especially Spain.

** The series was also wildly popular in Spain, where it was renamed ''The Fantastic Car'' and achieved an iconic status as a part of TheEighties. When the 2008 revival premiered in Spain, it got ''historical'' ratings and received two TV runs back to back.

* ValuesResonance: The beginning of the episode KITT vs. KARR feel this way, especially if you view John as going through a midlife crisis, a cool car with beautiful girls complimenting him on the car.
--> John- Where were you when I was 17? I thought the days when a hot car would make me feel good again were over.

** The success of the ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' movie was a major influence on [=KR08=]'s pilot movie, and the subsequent show borrowed a lot of design elements (including the transformation style), culminating in bringing Creator/PeterCullen back as the voice of KARR.

** Ironically, the transformation style had previously been attempted in ''Viper'', which was a distant FollowTheLeader of the original Knight Rider.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: ''{{Series/Airwolf}}'', ''Series/BlueThunder'', ''Series/StreetHawk'', ''The Highwayman'', and arguably ''{{Series/Automan}}'' were all [[TravelCool cool vehicle]] shows spawned in the wake of KR's success. The first two were also obviously DuelingShows that were ''also'' following ''Film/BlueThunder'''s cinematic lead, and ''Automan'' was following two leaders, KR and ''{{Film/Tron}}''. Notably, all but ''Airwolf'' [[ShortRunners died early deaths]].

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: The show has had three examples of EvilTwin, one of which was KARR, KITT's evil twin. At first, this seems like a further effort to establish the car as a character. But when you think about it, KITT is ''more'' likely to have an evil twin than the two humans (Michael and Devon). True, the in-universe explanation is the most likely (KITT is an advanced piece of technology and KARR was his prototype), but creating a copy of KITT only requires getting a third generation Trans-Am and customizing it to look like KITT (which some real life fans have no doubt done).

* HilariousInHindsight: Hasselhoff played the Marvel character Nick Fury in a poorly received TV movie. The MarvelCinematicUniverse now features a much better received version of Fury...who has a talking car in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''.
