Storyline

Siblings Tommy and Annika Settergren have fun with their friend Pippi Longstocking at her house Villa Villekulla, until they lose track of time and are greeted at home by their bossy parents, who address them before they angrily run off to bed. Pippi joins the family at breakfast the following morning, when Tommy and Annika, asked by their family to cut the weeds off their strawberry patch, are fed up with not having fun, so they bitterly decide to run away from home. Feeling that their two children might be serious about this, the Settergrens send Pippi to look after them. Pippi, Tommy, and Annika disembark on a long and rigorous trek away from home, during which they befriend an eccentric peddler named Konrad, travel from town to town, ride on top of a train, ride a flying car, and other fun adventures. But the harsher their journey gets, Tommy and Annika eventually learn that they had it a lot better back at home after all... Written by John Paul Cassidy <ryuuseipro@cavtel.net>

Trivia

Oddly, this was the first Pippi movie theatrically released in Japan by Nippon Planning in 1973 under the title "Nagakutsushita no Pippi" (Pippi Longstocking's name in Japan). To further add to the confusion, the rest of the Japanese theatrical releases were, in order, the first compilation film Pippi Longstocking (1969) ("Pippi no Atarashii Bôken"/"Pippi's New Adventure"), Pippi in the South Seas (1970) ("Pippi no Takarajima"/"Pippi on Treasure Island"), and Pippi Goes on Board (1969) ("Pippi Fune ni Noru"/"Pippi Goes on Board"). The 2005 Japanese DVD release by Kadokawa Entertainment released this film under a somewhat more suitable title, "Pippi Longstocking Continues" ("Zoku Nagakutsushita no Pippi"), to follow the first compilation film.

Crazy Credits

In the 4-part German TV version, "With Pippi Longstocking on the Roll" ("Mit Pippi Langstrumpf auf der Walze"), the opening credits are almost the same as the credits for the German theatrical movie version (credits next to child-like drawings on a colorful background, only these are static and dissolve from one picture to the next, as opposed to moving around, as in the movie). The ending credits for all four parts uses the opening credits sequence of the original Swedish version (Pippi riding on Lilla Gubben in the sunset). The song "Hey, Pippi Longstocking" (the German version of "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking") plays in the opening credits of all four parts, and in the ending credits of all but Part 4, which plays the sad song "Goodbye, Pippi Longstocking" ("Auf Wiedersehen Pippi Langstrumpf" - the German rearrangement of "Goodbye, Little Pippi, Goodbye" from Episode 13 of the Swedish TV series). The concluding episode, "Part 4," is actually called "Last Part: Farewell to Pippi" ("Letzter Teil: Abschied von Pippi") in both the opening and ending credits, and aptly so, as this was the series finale in the German version.

The first movie i've ever seen in the cinema
24 May 1999 | by (Kassel, Germany) – See all my reviews

Pippi Longstocking was the heroine of my childhood. When i was a little girl I wanted to be so strong like her and I wanted to have such beautiful red plaits. Now I am a thirtysomething adult woman and it still fills my heart with joy when I watch the film. Astrid Lindgren has really written one of the most beautiful children's books in the literature history and all the Swedish Pippi Longstocking movies are absolutely awesome. Georg Riedel has also written a memorable and wonderful title song.
