Commercial counsellor Lillukka has died, and in the will he overlooks his family.Instead, he leaves his toy factory Le-lu to Pekka Puupää who has amused him in the comics and the movies.Pekka starts running the factory with Pätkä, and also gives a job to janitor Pikkarainen.Most of the day those two spend playing with toys.Pätkä is in trouble with the widow of Lillukka, who wants to marry him.Armand Lohikoski's Pekka ja Pätkä Miljonääreinä (1958) is the eleventh Pekka and Pätkä movie.Esa Pakarinen and Masa Niemi team up also in this one, as they did in all 13 movies.Siiri Angerkoski plays the tough wife Justiina and Armas Jokio is Pikkarainen.Freckle-face is played by Harri Turunen.Elsa Turakainen portrays Gunilla Lillukka.Uuno Montonen plays Walfrid Lillukka.Leena Pulkkinen is the daughter Inga.Juhani Kumpulainen is the son Viktor.Heikki Heino plays the part of Merkonomi Timo Sahala.Tommi Rinne is Constable.Heikki Savolainen is Office Manager.Also in this movie are people like Tarmo Manni, Pentti Irjala, Arvo Lehesmaa, Kaarlo Wilska and Laila Rihte.Musician Kai Lind is also seen there.This movie offers you many funny moments, as these movies always do.Pätkä's dance with Gunilla is most hilarious.That man really got the moves! The birthday songs by Suvi-Päivikki and Kielo-Tellervo to Freckle-face are really cute.And the song at the lumberjack's shack is most amusing.Pikkarainen pondering over the father of Sepeteus' sons is a classic.In this movie we see Pätkä dressed as Pekka, and Pekka wearing Pätkä's outfit.I borrowed the movie on Monday on VHS, even though I have seen the movie a few times in the past.But you never get bored to the humor of Pekka and Pätkä.
