Herbie and the Traffic Cop

Scale Model by Disneyland's Entertainment-Art Department, 1980s.

To start things off right, our pal over at "Disney On Parole" has posted photos of an exciting battle between man and bug that you won't want to miss.

Herbie vs. the police. Who do YOU think will win?

I have a picture from a 1977 Christmas parade, and Chip is driving a mini-Herbie next to the full-sized one!

Thank you for the nice comment on my blog! I recently discovered your blog and have been enjoying it very much! I am going to add a link to your blog on mine if that is okay.

I love the parade float models you have been posting. Throwing the models out to free up space sounds like something Disney would do. Very sad! I'm glad you thought to photograph these AND I'm glad you decided to share them! I was in Fantasy On Parade in 1981 and that parade also used Herbie and the motorcycle cop as well as the candy cottage, the post office, and the Santa float (with the "silly" reindeer and glock girls.) Fond memories...thank you, again!
