Year of Release: N/K

The Love Bug is a 1968 American comedy film directed by Robert Stevenson and the first in a franchise by Walt Disney Productions and distributed by Buena Vista Distribution that starred an anthropomorphic pearl-white, fabric-sunroofed 1963 Volkswagen racing Beetle named Herbie. It was based on the 1961 book Car, Boy, Girl by Gordon Buford.

Loser race car driver Jim Douglas has been reduced to competing in demolition derby races against drivers half his age. As part of his overall life of poverty, Jim lives in an old fire house overlooking San Francisco Bay with his friend and mechanic, Tennessee Steinmetz. Steinmetz, a claimant of Buddhist spiritual enlightenment, is a sculptor who uses old car parts. After yet another race ends in a crash, Jim must find a new car to drive. At an upmarket European car showroom, Douglas meets (cute) sales assistant and mechanic, Carole Bennett, and meets (not-cute) dealership's British owner, Peter Thorndyke. Thorndyke, the villain, is shown abusing a white Volkswagen Beetle. Douglas, lacking money, leaves Thorndyke's showroom with nothing, but the abused Beetle follows him home.
