I Liked It When I Saw It The First Time, Entries Beginning with K

This page is inspired by the comedy of David Spade. Yes, David Spade. During his stay on Saturday Night Live, he would occasionally put things down that seemed to copy things before them by saying something like "I liked 'Black Sheep' the first time I saw it, when it was called 'Tommy Boy'". So this is my attempt at ranking on the movies and television programs of the nineties (and present) by pointing out what they copied from the eighties. Since there always seems to be a lot or unoriginal ideas in Hollywood, this should be an easy page to fill up quickly.

I liked "Ken Jennings" when it was called Thom McKee
These two contestants went on won a lot of $$$ and won consecutives games in a row and were record breaking moments too. Thom was on Tic Tac Dough in 1980 and won $312,750 in cash and prizes including 8 new cars winning 43 straight games. Ken won over $2.5 million on Jeopardy! in 2004 and a new car winning 74 straight games. They both came back later to play in the Tournament of Champions for both shows they were on and both lost in the Championship game.
I liked "Kids Bop" when it was called Kids Incorporated
I liked "The Killers" when it was called Duran Duran
The Killers is like an imitation or 2000's Duran Duran. They bring Duran Duran's sound to the millenium era. Great job!
I liked "King of the Hill" when it was called Roseanne
I liked "King of the Hill" when it was called The Simpsons
I liked "Kirk Hinrich" when it was called John Stockton
Even though Kirk is 6'3 and John was 6'1, John was a better point guard.
I liked "Kobe Bryant" when it was called Michael Jordan
I liked "Kobe Bryant" when it was called Michael Jordan
The Original can never be replaced.
I liked "Krumping" when it was called Breakdancing
I liked "Kyle X.Y." when it was called D.A.R.Y.L.
'A young boy is found wandering without any memory of who he is. A family takes him in and begin to look for clues to help him find his way home. In the meantime, they notice that the boy seems to have certain special abilities, not usually found in kids his age, or even fully-grown adults.' The movie is better. It has the action without all the Dawson-Creek angst.

What else can you think of that is ripped off from the 80s?
