    wow, that's great news that they're coming out. I can only hope that they'll be widescreen. I've been waiting for these for a while.

    I would also like to see the short-lived TV series based on the films. I've never seen it and would like to, as a historical curio.

    Just out of interest - when the 4 disc Herbie set was released here in R4, only The Love Bug was widescreen. The three sequels were full screen.
    However, since R1 generally gets better treatment and since the releases are separate, I do hope you will get WS transfers!

    Since it's from Disney, we probably won't find out until we see it in the store.

    If you wait until June 1st, you can get the Herbie The Love Bug: Complete Four-Film Collection. It's a bit cheaper at SRP $65.99

    Well that answers one question, whether the 2 disc SE was in the collection or not.

    What is the quality of the first film? This DVD was never released in Canada.

    Jeff: What do you mean by "the first film"? I have a Canadian copy of The Love Bug SE, if that's what you mean. It was not that easy to find, eventually found it buried at Wal-Mart, and cheap too.

    Yes, the Love Bug SE. None of the online retaillers have it. I don't have a Walmart within 100 miles of here...

    The info from Disney is that only Herbie Rides Again will be widescreen. The other two will be full frame. Who knows why?

    The first two films, "The Love Bug" and the sequel ,"Herbie Rides Again", were always my favorite of the four films.

    Both are Widescreen 1.75:1 ratio, enhanced, and have DD 5.1 surround sound. Hope after purchasing both DVD's that this will tell Disney only OAR counts.

    "The other two will be full frame. Who knows why?"

    Maybe because they're so horribly bad, not even light escapes their awfullness -- hence, putting an IP of "Herbie Goes Bananas" through a datacine could cause a chain reaction resulting in the complete destruction of the entire Universe?

    It's a risk the studio should be willing to take.
