Great job as always, Rog. I'm not a huge fan of parades either, but I would have loved seeing all those pop culture cars in one place. Sadly I would have missed them if I'd been there, after being arrested trying to step over so many people to steal that minijet.

Nice to see one of these things outside of cheesy holiday movies for once. The only float parade we have over here (as far as I know) is the Viareggio Carnival one.

I'm completely jealous
Where I live, the Santa Clause Parade is at night, but there's never anything worth seeing. it's ALL Christmas themed :P

The KITT with the yellow scan bar actually IS KITT's evil twin KARR (Knight's Automated Roving Robot). It was the prototype for KITT that went evil and was featured in a few episodes as well as being the main villian of the Knight Rider video games. Some confusion might come from the fact that in the first appearance he also had a red scan bar (that scanned differently) but in subsequent episodes it was yellow. By the time he appeared in the video games, he was given a two-tone paint job, with his ground-fx painted gun metal gray.

In the first episode it was actually voiced by Peter Cullen... so yeah, Kitt with Optimus Prime's voice! I think Frank Welker went on to do him in later episodes and he was given a more generic bad guy voice.

I'm genuinely suprised you didn't know that!

I hope the parade planners did their due diligence on that Elmo balloon.

I never suspected "The Bold and the Beatiful" were a show that actually exists! I thought Seinfeld made it up for Kramer to obsessively watch...

Great photo series!

HowardC - I watched the show here 'n there in my childhood and always loved KITT, but I was a much bigger fan of Airwolf. I dunno, I guess the kid in me always believed that a high-tech supersonic helicopter was cooler than a high-tech sports car. Sadly, after the show ended, the helicopter was sold and later destroyed in a crash, killing all of its crew members. :(
