Herbie the Love Bug is a Walt Disney Company film franchise launched in 1968 with the release of The Love Bug about a sentient 1963 Volkswagen Beetle who becomes a racing car. The film spawned three sequels, Herbie Rides Again (1974),Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977), and Herbie Goes Bananas (1980), as well as a short-lived 1982 TV series, 1997 TV remake, and 2005's Herbie: Fully Loaded.
