Sound-Effects

Related:

Like many comics, every Herbie story has sound effects, mostly silly, almost all with exclamation points. There are many sound effects with punching, things getting squished, butt jokes, breaking through walls, lolli-bopping, ...

Instead of the usual POW! CRUNCH! KABOOM!, Herbie comics sound effects were more like the 1960s Batman show sound effects. Flaming Carrot #31, in which Herbie was a guest star, had no sound effects.
