Show generally

Revealing mistake: Across the whole show you see the interior of KITT as being futuristic and curved towards the driver. Also you notice the steering wheel isn't a circular wheel, but a futuristic 'half wheel' with handles. But when you see shoots from a distance you see stunt men driving the car, you can see a normal steering wheel and a normal dash.


Show generally

Factual error: Realistically, there is no way someone can be thrown straight up from the driver's seat of a Pontiac Trans-Am, even with T-tops. Whoever was being shot straight up would probably break their legs on the crossbar that's adjacent to the windshield.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of many shows it will show the car's instruments, panning from one to the other. The speedometer will show various speeds in that shot, but a close up of the gauge will then show 55 MPH.

Mister Ed

Show generally

Other mistake: 99% of the shots when Michael presses the 'Turbo Boost' button, it's the same shot repeated over and over.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: The inside shots of Kitt's voice modulator are repeated over and over, with the camera slightly moving sideways, to give the impression of the car running. Problem is, many times the car is at a standstill, so the moving camera shot is inconsistent.

Michael Knight: I need ya buddy.
KITT: Right away Michael.
