The policemen Kling and Klang were originally intended to be played by Swedish comedy duo Hans Alfredson and Tage Danielsson (known collectively as "Hasseåtage"). The two had previously played criminals in another Lindgren/Hellbom movie: Skrållan, Ruskprick och Knorrhane (1967). But for some reason, probably scheduling conflicts, they were unable to do it. Hans has later said that "if we'd had the possibility to portray [Kling and Klang] we probably would have". However, Hans would later have another shot at a role in the Pippi series; he played Konrad the Peddler in the film Pippi on the Run (1970). 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...
