    The May 20 DVD release of Disney's "The Love Bug" is going to be a "Special Edition" release with the same design as "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and the 4 Vault Disney titles.

    The film will be presented in 1.75:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1. Disc 1 also includes audio commentary with Dean Jones, Michele Lee and Buddy Hackett and the accompanying cartoon short "Susie The Little Blue Coupe" (which also appears on the Adventures of Ichabod & Mr. Toad DVD). Disc Two is also packed with documentaries and featurettes: "That Lovable Bug", "The Many Lives of Herbie", "Herbie Mania", "Lost Treasurs: Searching for Herbie", 1969 Disney Studio Album, Production Galley, Behind-the-Scenes Promo, "Love Bug Day" at Disneyland, "The Man Who Gave Herbie His Voice", 2 deleted scenes ("Used Car Lot" & "Playground"), two Sound Studio features ("Herbie on the Rocks" and "Thorndyke and the Bear"), galleries of the original theatrical trailer & radio spots, advertising material, documents, a screenplay excerpt, and cast biographies. SRP is $29.99.

    great stuff indeed. I never thought that The Love Bug had so many extra features.

    Was there a LD released as well with all of these features ?

    I never owned a LD player ?

    Thanks in advance

    I hope you guys are right, but what I fear is that Love Bug and 20,000 Leagues were started and spec'd out when their was a Vault Disney line, and hence they are two disc and OAR. But I fear that future films may not get the same treatment. I hope I'm wrong though.

    I do beleive it is Herbie's first adventure with DVD. A welcome one at that. Always loved these flicks when younger.

    Now if Disney would give us a good special edition of The Black Hole I can die a happy man.

    Well, Disney dropped the Flubber when they didn't combine ABSENT MINDED PROFESSOR/SON OF FLUBBER into one bouncy (sorry) specal edition, with commentary perhaps by Nancy Olsen and even Tommy Kirk. Maybe soon? Hint? Hint? [​IMG]

    Cool!

    I've always had a soft spot for this film, perhaps in part because I drove a gray VW beetle at the time.
