The African samba-style theme song, "Här Kommer Pippi Långstrump" ("Here Comes Pippi Longstocking") was sung in the original Swedish version by star Inger Nilsson, and written by Astrid Lindgren (the author of the original books). It was composed by jazz musician Jan Johansson, who used the performances of the Ghana Police Orchestra as one of his inspirations for the song. Sadly, it would also be one of Jan's last works, as he met his untimely death in a car crash on November 9, 1968 (at the age of 37), while the series was still in production. See more »
Used to watch this series every Saturday morning on the french CBC network in Canada. Though the series was well dubbed in Belgium (and the movies were dubbed in Canada later...), it was the funniest and most original series ever come from Europe. It made me discover Sweden as well. It has an international touch in which the location would not matter here...
If Pippi (or Fifi in french) had a few tricks on her dress to avoid the cops or the old lady who wants to bring her to an orphanage, she was real kind to her best friends Tommy and Anika, and always was eager to help. And she loved her animals, especially her horse and the pet monkey.
I liked the first season due to its freshness and originality. The "pirates" one and the 3rd season are less interesting.
Wish there would be a DVD in French for this wonderful show...
