Herbie Goes Bananas

Continuity mistake: In the bullfighting scene Herbie's driver-side running board is dented upward in the middle, but in the following scene it isn't there.

Visible crew/equipment: When Paco runs across the street, you can see studio lights reflected in the side of a VW camper as it goes by.

Revealing mistake: After the shot that shows Herbie spitting sea water from his exhausts, look at the bumper in the next shot of Herbie, when he gets black smoke from his exhausts. The rust doesn't look real, because they used paint to make it look like rust.

Trivia: Due to the enormous number of stunts in this film, a total of 26 Volkswagen Beetles played the part of Herbie.

Trivia: When Herbie is made to "walk the plank" on the cruise liner, a real Volkswagen Beetle was thrown into the sea and was never retrieved.


D.J.: Why do keep calling this car Ocho? Ocho means eight. Can't you read the numbers?
Paco: Sure I can read the numbers. Five and three are eight. Anyone knows that.
