He's the star who provides the most laughs per gallon. He's Herbie, the lovable car with a mind of his own. Dean Jones, Michele Lee, and Buddy Hackett join Herbie in this revved-up comedy classic. Jones plays down-on-his-luck race car driver Jim Douglas, who reluctantly teams up with the little machine. Douglas thinks his sudden winning streak is due to his skill, not Herbie's. He finally realizes the car's worth when a sneaky rival plots to steal Herbie for himself. But it's Herbie who'll steal your heart in this wildly fun roller-coaster ride of a movie you'll never forget!|A down-and-out racetrack driver, Jim Douglas, acquires a little Volkswagen, but doesn't realize the "bug" is almost human. The car helps Jim win many races but runs away when it feels it is not appreciated, into the clutches of villainous rival Peter Thorndyke. With the help of his friends Tennessee and Carole, Jim changes his attitude, finds the bug, and apologizes. They win another race -- and Jim falls in love with Carole.|The film was the biggest American box office hit of 1969, and the second highest-grossing Disney film of all time after MARY POPPINS.|The movie is based on the story "Car-Boy-Girl" by Gordon Buford.|Bill Walsh, producer and co-writer of THE LOVE BUG, is responsible for Herbie's famous number 53. Walsh said he "was seeing lots of 53s on television ... It was [Los Angeles Dodgers] pitcher Don Drysdale's number, among other things."|Disney converted at least 26 VWs into Herbies. It's estimated that up to 40 Herbies were created for the film.|Dean Jones, who played Jim Douglas in the film, took his costar Buddy Hackett on a "white-knuckled" ride around Riverside Raceway at 115 mph!
