About Herbie (movies)

Herbie is an anthropomorphic 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, a character that is featured in several Disney motion pictures starting with the 1969 feature film The Love Bug. He has a mind of his own and is capable of driving himself, and is a serious contender in auto racing competitions. Throughout most of the franchise, Herbie is distinguished by red, white and blue racing stripes from front to back bumper, a racing-style number '53' on the front luggage compartment lid, doors, and engine lid, and a yellow-on-black '63 California license plate with the lettering 'OFP 857'.
