Default Slug Bug
Re:: The game is on   

Ok my grandson and I are always playing the old "Slug-bug game. (Although we call a truce when we get to the house or we would beat each other to death)

Anyway I thought it would be neat to do it here. Expert we can't hit each other.

My thoughts are; When anyone sees an air-cooled VW (not just a Beetle) on TV or in a movie we post it here. The name of the movie or TV show and the scene it is in. It has to be verifiable.

Once it is posted no-one can repost. If it caches on maybe a prize for the most sightings in a month or something.



OK it's my game so I will start.

Slug bug blue:

In the movie Astronaut Farmer there is a blue Beetle when they pull up to the restaurant. It appears through-out the movie.

The movie "are we done yet" Split bus. Green and white I believe. It belongs to the Dry Rot repair brothers.

-Persuit of happyness: white beetle in one of the san fransisco street scenes (i'll have to rewatch to get exact scenes)

-Herbie, the love bug: whole movie

-Herbie, rides again: whole movie

-Herbie, goes to monte carlo: whole movie

-Herbie, goes bananas: whole movie

-Herbie, fully loaded: whole movie

-American graffiti: scene where Curt is riding in a beetle with the girls (xgirlfriend and her friend)

-An extremely goofy movie: (Disney) Max drives a splitty to college

-Little miss sunshine: (haven't actually watched this one yet), but there's a yellow bus on the cover, guy hanging out the side door and people chasing after it.

-Cars: (Disney/Pixar) Filmore the bus, throughout the movie, beetles (lightning bugs misc. scenes)

Okay, around Christmas there is the Folgers coffee commercial where the kid gets dropped off from a blue bug and grandma is surprised to see him. Anyone remember that one?
