Angry Man


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 <>

Did You Know?


For the German version of the original 13-episode Swedish TV series (Pippi Longstocking (1969)), this feature film was divided into four episodes. These would be Episodes 18-21, and the collective name of the 4-part story arc (and, in this case, the new series finale) was titled "With Pippi Longstocking on the Roll" ("Mit Pippi Langstrumpf auf der Walze").

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.

One of the best series of all time!
24 February 2000 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

All four of these films were really good. This one has Pippi and her two friends runaway from home because they are tired of parents rules. So Pippi takes them on a venture they will never forget. Inger Nilsson who plays Pippi did a fantasic job despite you can tell voices were dubbed. Watching Inger Nilsson was just great and that's why these are great films!
