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

Mr. Nilsson (Pippi's monkey) and Lilla Gubben (Pippi's horse) were supposed to appear throughout the film, but had to be written out of most of the plot, as the animals were reportedly hard to handle on set, and had to be drugged to keep them under control. See more »

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.

A classic of children's cinema
20 December 2006 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Truly without any shadow of a doubt a masterpiece of children's cinema. Totally different from US or European cinema: there is no play to the emotions here. It is simply who and what Pippi is: and it is deeply enthralling to children.

We have three children who all LOVE watching these. They are not clever, or brilliantly filmed, have no CGI whatsoever and yet they come back to them again and again and again.

For a child what can be more exciting to have a friend who doesn't need adults, is generous, fun, mischievous, silly, has fantastic adventures, AND is the strongest (yes! strongest!) girl in the world.

This series shaped a generation of Swedes: it is truly is one of the best of all children's cinema. Adults may not get it as much as their children will. Best for those around 3-7 you will be amazed at what they see that we no longer do. Hurrah for Pippi!
