  • [Fun] Herbie The Love Bug 40th Aniversary

    Just in case anyone forgot, last week was the 40th anniversary of Disney's release of the original Love Bug.

    To celebrate the event LoveBugFans.com gathered as many Herbie's they could and invaded WDW. Though I wasn't able to attend, I figured you all might like to see some of the highlights.

    Post your Herbie's 40th Pics Here! - The Love Bug's 40th Celebration After Party - LoveBugFans Member Forum - LoveBugFans.Com - Message Board - Yuku


    This is something you don't see everyday.


    One nice thing about having this many Herbie fans, is that if the clutch goes bad (on this original Herbie Goes Bananas car) you can just pull the engine in the parking lot and fix it.

    That's so neat.

    I bet Disney didn't even bother to make a pin though.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

      No, I don't think they did. They made a pin a couple of years back, for the Ice Crea Shop for the release of Herbie Fully Loaded then reissued it as a reverse image for the parks, but that's pretty much it for Herbie lately

      They didn't even issue the embroidered baseball caps they gave out at the Premiere of HFL

        Wow that looks so cool, I'm such a huge fan of the old Herbie movies I would have loved to have gone down to see that had I knew it was going to be happening down there... Great job on the restorations / fabrications on those bugs!

          This was a fan based event, not an official Disney celebration, though Disney was well aware of LoveBugFans event and from what I understand gracious.

            Yeah but you know Disney really needs to get back into the habit of facilitating fan based events like that, even if it's just posting on the calendar of events somewhere they would have had at least one more room sale for that one...

              Wow, that brings back memories. I remember seeing the original movie when I was a little kid.

                    I was a big Herbie fan when I was a kid. Fun movies, irrepressible car.
