One of the highlights of Moteurs… Action! for us used to be the appearance of Herbie, a character synonymous with Sunday afternoons spent watching classic films such as Herbie Goes bananas. By now I am sure you are aware that Herbie has been replaced by Lightning McQueen from the Cars and new Cars 2 films. It makes sense with the popularity of the films and wanting to appeal to a new generation, but I will miss old Herbie. My little boy will certainly be excited to see Lightning as he’s mad on the Cars lead character and has no idea who Herbie is.
If you haven’t already seen it, here is a video of Moteurs… Action! with Lightning McQueen:
