Herbie often bops his adversaries with special bopping lollipops, which makes bopping a power. But bopping led to his catchphrase rhetorical question "You want I should bop you with this here lollipop?" so maybe it's a gag speech pattern. Bopped bad guys would imitate Herbie's catchphrase, "He bopped me with this here lollipop!"

It's not clear whether bopping requires Herbie's strength -- it might just be technique, combined with the power of the lollipops themselves. Being so effective, there are several sound-effects associated with bopping.
