When KARR is on the road again during the first twenty minutes it is a replica of KITT, but then suddenly the appearance changes with gray panels on the side, as with the toy model of KARR. During KARR's first conversation with John in the garage, KARR does say he wants to alter his appearance, although he never says why. See more »


K.I.T.T.: That can't be KARR. We destroyed KARR two years ago.
Michael Knight: Then who or what is that?
K.I.T.T.: But I saw him explode! You saw him explode!
Michael Knight: I know, gimme a scan of his license plate.
K.I.T.T.: Good idea!
[K.I.T.T. scans K.A.R.R.'s license plate]
Michael Knight: [sighs] So much for wishful thinking

I think the reason I liked 'K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.' so much is because it tapped into that feeling of watching this as a kid again; two over-powered foes gearing up for a reckoning. But did they make good on the promise and inflict maximum carnage in the end? Not really. But that's because the real strength is in the buildup to the main event, with Michael's anxiety reaching fever pitch. Bu the time you get to the end, you're so happy K.I.T.T.'s intact that there really is no letdown, at least for me.

The real drawback here is that Peter Cullen wasn't brought back to voice K.A.R.R., and it's a noticeable difference to say the least. On the other hand, I do like the new paint job; it's K.I.T.T.'s version of a goateed evil twin.
