Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that one of the main characters of this show is a car that can -- and often does -- zip along at 300 mph, jump over ditches, shoot flames, and many other daredevil exploits. Kids, who are probably the most likely to enjoy the show these days (although even they may be turned off by the now-dated effects and production values), may plead with their parents to emulate the show's questionable traffic habits ... or at least to buy them toys that will let them pretend to do it themselves.

Sexual Content

Many episodes include a romantic subplot, but the main character's love life remains offscreen.


Frequent chase scenes, but they aren't very scary. The occasional fist fights and shootouts aren't especially graphic, either.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Michael and KITT are dedicated to fighting crime and injustice, and every episode centers on their ongoing crusade to uphold law and order.


In the '80s, tie-in toys were very popular.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some characters smoke and drink, but rarely to excess.
