Screenplay: Bill Walsh, Don DaGradi. Cast: Dean Jones, Michele Lee, Buddy Hackett.

Start your engines for fun! When a Volkswagen Bug follows him from the dealership, racecar driver Jim Douglas doesn’t know what to think but soon discovers this is no ordinary car! With the help of his equally eccentric mechanic, played with comic gusto by Buddy Hackett, Douglas takes his four-wheeled magical friend out on the racing circuit while trying to keep it out of the hands of an evil car dealer. The original big-screen incarnation of Herbie, The Love Bug remains a timeless classic for the whole family.
