Herman the Bootle Beetle is the assistant of Professor Ludwig Von Drake. He appears in with the professor in several episodes of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, including "The Hunting Instinct", "Three Tall Tales", "Music for Everybody" and "The Truth About Mother Goose".

Given that the only voice credit in his appearances with Von Drake is Paul Frees, it can be assumed that Frees voiced Herman as well.


In The Truth About Mother Goose, it is established that Herman and the professor have been friends since childhood. He is shown to be a firm believer in fairy tales, which annoys Von Drake. He also frequently says things that annoy the professor, but despite it all, Von Drake cares for his well-being.
