Nominated for a Tony as Supporting Actor in a Musical for his lead role of John Adams in the 1969 musical "1776." He could not be nominated for lead actor because he did not then have star billing (i.e., above the title). Adams is clearly the lead role in 1776 (1972), so Daniels declined the nomination.

Worked conscientiously to lose the Brooklyn accent he grew up with, so that he could obtain a wider range of roles. His adopted accent is close to the Boston dialect he used as Dr. Mark Craig on St. Elsewhere (1982) and Mr. George Feeny on Boy Meets World (1993).

One episode of St. Elsewhere (1982) called for Dr. and Mrs. Craig to visit Philadelphia. Inspired by returning to Independence Square, he sang a few lines of the song "Sit Down, John" from 1776 (1972). The moment was included in the episode.

William Daniels in Captain Nice (1967)

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.

His St. Elsewhere (1982) co-star, Ed Begley Jr., would be the total opposite of him. Coming from film, Begley came in to work late, had trouble learning his lines, while Daniels learned a lot of lines, coming from the theater.
