Answer: K.A.R.R.

KARR (Knight Automated Roving Robot) was KITT’s arch enemy on Knight Rider. KARR was the prototype version of KITT. There was a programming error in KARR’s CPU that made him unstable and dangerous.
KARR first appeared in the Season One episode “Trust Doesn’t Rust” aired on NBC on November 19, 1982, where he seemingly met his demise at the end. However, he was so popular with viewers that he was brought back again in the Season Three episode “K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.”, aired on NBC on November 4, 1984 (marking him as one of the very few villains in the original series to make a return appearance).

In Season One, KARR was voiced by Peter Cullen, who is known for being the voice of Transformer ‘s Optimus Prime. In the Seasoin Three episode, KARR ws voiced by Paul Frees, best known for providing the voice of the “Ghost Host” in The Haunted Mansion from the Disney parks, as well as the voice of Boris from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

  1. Paul Frees was also in the Rankin/Bass cartoons, including Frosty the Snowman. Just looked him up and he had quite an extensive career.
