Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The German comedy-fantasy Superbug was a calculated ripoff of Disney's The Love Bug. The title character, a Volkswagen known as Dodo the Beetle, could fly, drive under water and think on its own. The first two films in the Dodo the Beetle saga--Superbug and Superbug, Secret Agent--were box-offices successes despite their derivative nature. Third in the canon was Superbug, the Wild One, in which the four-wheeled hero joins a motorcyle gang (for a good cause, of course). Kids might get a hoot out of Superbug, the Wild One, though adults will be put off by the poor acting, the sloppy direction and the nonexistent production values.
