In a recent episode of E-Ring there were two Beetles parked on the side of the road and the bad guys blew up a Type 2. What a crying shame

In the movie Hide and Seek, Robert DeNiro's girl friend drives an older Beetle (mint, of course). Later in the movie DeNiro is told that it was driven into a tree, but you never see it. Thank god!

There are two movies and for the life of me I can't remember the names.

One has Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase in it. She has something in a pack of smokes that her friend was killed for and Chase is a cop. She has a vert.

 

The second one was one the other day. I was surffing through the channels. A guy goes into the army to stay out of prison and falls for a girl that is a mental case. There is a red thing he drives in a few scenes. Didn't watch much of it.

That movie with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn was called Foul Play.

 

Quote:

"Beware of the Dwarf," whispers the hitchhiker to the beautiful librarian (Goldie Hawn) as he dies midway through a screening of This Gun Is Mine. Suddenly, Hawn is propelled into a world of wild chases, bizarre attempts on her life, and deadly encounters with an assortment of weird underworld characters. Academy Award winner Hawn teams with Chevy Chase (in his first starring motion picture assignment) - and with hilarious results. Chase plays the handsome San Francisco detective who becomes personally and professionally involved with all the off things happening to Hawn. Costarring a pre-Arthur Dudley Moore in one of his most delightful comic turns.

In Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 movie Vertigo, Barbara Bel Geddes appears to be in a Karmann-Ghia in the scene where she is driving her car. Also, you can see some Beetles in the background of some of the scenes where James Stewart is driving in the San Francisco city streets.

There are often fleeting appearances of Beetles in The Simpsons. Whenever there are scenes of traffic on roads or scenes in parking lots, there's often a Beetle drawn somewhere in there. But they're often visible only for a second or so, so you need to pay close attention to notice them.

I watched " where Eagles dare" on the weekend on satillite TV, and 4 Kubelwagens were wrecked..... or Maybe just two as the first time they were really wrecked down a maintain, but the 2nd time they were just blown up and rolled over.......

So, hopefully it was only two kubels that were wrecked.....

I wonder if they were real Kubel wagens or fiberglass bodies....

they look real enough..... You wouldn't think they would wreck vehicles that had escaped from WWII intact.... but then look at how many Herbies it took to make the Herbie Movies.....

Yes, You sure do watch a lot of TV Wayne  

Have You done the Herbie Movies on Here Yet??

I was away in hospital for January and most of February...

I don't want to miss all the info....

On the old TV Show "Diagnosis Murder" yesterday, the Younger Doctor Scott Biao, was driving a red pre 65 Karmann convertible Beetle....

Usually He drives a Stingray or something like that..

Actually, everytime You see one of the Drs driving, they are always in a different car... Drs must rent their cars??? LOL..

 

and in "Uncle Buck" yesterday, A Clown turns up in a Beetle with fur all over it and a mouses head at the front....

We were bored last night so I dug out what I believe is the funniest movie ever made......Blazing Saddles.  At the end where the hero rides out of the studio on to the streets in Hollywood you see 3 different bugs.

Two Beetle sightings: At the end of an episode of "My name is Earl" there is a Beetle sitting in the  street in front of the bowling alley. In a commercial for "Doritos" a bunch of huge cheese wheels fall out of a truch and are rolling down a hill, crashing through fences. One of them drops over a wall right next to a red Beetle.

There is rarely a street scene in "The Rockford Files" that doen't have a Beetle in it.  Disney's The "Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" has Kurt Russell driving a nice dune buggy. In fact I think all the Dexter Riley movies have VWs as featured cars.
