I've always found Knight a pretty interesting and peculiar performer. I must say that I found it pretty amusing that he helped Filmation get the Superman gig. The story of how Filmation got the rights to Superman is a legend in animation history. Knight was among the group of relatives and close friends that Scheimer brought in to bluff the DC executives into giving Filmation the rights. Knight pretended to be an editor. XD

That said, I always found pretty interesting the fact that he could play a character with different types of delivery, yet still making it engaging and entertaining.

I mean, whether he gave a powerful delivery (which he did for his narration) or completely corny and deliberately stilted delivery (listen to his Riddler and his Flash), he was always a lot of fun.
