William Daniels Facts
While performing on both "St. Elsewhere" (1982) and "Knight Rider" (1982) in the 1980s, Daniels made goodwill visits to children's hospitals. He discovered that not many children were thrilled to meet an actor who played a doctor, but the fact that he voiced the talking car KITT always appealed to them, so he shifted emphasis during his visits. He entertained the children with KITT-styled phrases, and answered their questions about "Knight Rider" while hardly mentioning his other, larger acting role.

The characters that Daniels and his real-life wife, Bonnie Bartlett, played in "Boy Meets World" (1993) married each other in an episode of that series, just as they are in real life.
