Mousterpiece Cinema, Episode 29: ‘The Love Bug’

Even though it’s been over 40 years since he first drove onto the silver screen and captured America’s heart, there are a lot of questions you can ask about Herbie, that famous Volkswagen Beetle. Why does he act like a human? Where did he come from? Most importantly, why is he called The Love Bug? On this week’s Mousterpiece Cinema, Josh is joined by co-host (yes, friends, you read that right!) Michael Ryan, from Sound on Sight, to debate and discuss these burning questions as well as look back on the careers of leading man Dean Jones and sidekick Buddy Hackett. But don’t you worry, Herbie, Josh and Michael talked plenty about you, too. Just take a listen to the show to find out!
