The Love BugThe Love Bug
) was the first of a series of movies made by Walt Disney
in the late 1960s
that starred a white Volkswagen
named Herbie, along with his driver (Dean Jones) and driver's love interest (Michele Lee). The movie itself inspired a franchise that lasted well into the 90's with at least a film a decade. The movie also helped along the Beetle craze, as people began to identify with the strange, rounded car that just seemed a bit different from most things on the road.
