| A charming little TV outing for the lovable car.
I had never even known of this TV show's existence until now in early January 2019. The story goes that the show was cancelled after only 5 episodes and the series locked away and forgotten about after its first airing.

This is such a shame because the show is absolutely charming! At first I thought it was very cheap and tacky looking but I started to really get into it and discovered that it was actually very good. Herbie is wonderfully mischievous as the lovable car with a mind of its own and it's great to see Dean Jones back as Jim Douglas. The blossoming romance between him and a pretty divorcee with 3 kids is sweet to watch, as is Herbie's cheeky match-making.

Thoroughly entertaining and inoffensive stuff. The show might not have the budget of the films and being a TV production from 1982 it does look dated, but it certainly has charm in bucketloads thanks to a great lead and a wonderfully charismatic little car.

If you are a Herbie fan then this is a must!
