I have seen the two Madicken (Madita) movies on PAL-2 DVD (a single DVD featuring both movies in both Swedish & German languages).

But the cast listing on the credits was unaltered by the Germans, and it said Madicken. So how did it translate as Madita in Germany? Since I don't understand Swedish, I can't exactly tell what were they about, and my German is just a beginner's German, so I might not anyway understand them all until I hone my college German... It's a very good story for all family members (although the pretty-clear 360-degree-around child nudity during the first three minutes of the first film might upset some conservative American families; that might explain why this movie doesn't exist in the States or why wasn't it translated from PAL to NTSC...)
