Storyline

After her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the "splunks", going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children's home. Older children will probably get the most out of this movie. Written by Amelia Chanowith

Trivia

In Americanizing the story, characters have been reworked for this movie. The character of Miss Bannister (Eileen Brennan) is a variation on Miss Prysselius from the Pippi Longstocking (1969) TV series. The character of Mr. Blackhart (George DiCenzo) is a crooked version of the nameless "Fine Gentleman" from the beginning of the third and final Pippi book, "Pippi in the South Seas." His henchmen, Rype (J.D. Dickinson) and Rancid (Chub Bailly), are based on the thieves Thunder-Karlsson and Bloom (who both originated in the first Pippi book, and also appeared in the TV series). The character of Miss Messerschmidt (Carole Kean) is based upon Miss Rosenblom (who also appeared in the book "Pippi in the South Seas"). And Gregory the Glue Man (Dick Van Patten) is based upon Konrad the Peddlar from the film Pippi on the Run (1970) (the denouement of the original Pippi TV/film series). See more »

Crazy Credits

Upon the Columbia Pictures logo appearing (during which the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play), the logo dissolves into (rather than fading-out-and-in to) the first image in the opening credits; the abstract vector image of Pippi's braided pigtails, freckles, and eyes (part of the movie's title logo) over a white background. The eyes are slightly animated, blinking occasionally, and focuses on the titles below: "Columbia Pictures Presents" appears first which fades out, then the "An Adham/Moshay/Mehlman Production of" credit rolls into place from the left and fades, then the "A Ken Annakin Film" that also rolls into place from the right and fades, and finally, the film's title, "The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking," which fades into place. The eyes focus on the "New" that suddenly bounces into place from the left (right between "The" and "Adventures," which conveniently part to make room for it). The eyes then look at the camera and the left eye winks for a second. Then the scene dissolves to the credit sequence proper. See more »

Fun fare for children and those young at heart
27 June 2003 | by (Harrison, Arkansas, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll be the first to admit that this film is light-hearted and often silly. After all, the Pippi books are silly and light-hearted, so why shouldn't a movie version be? The character of Pippi is a great character study for kids: She is imaginative, creative, confident and above all, a good-willed and courteous child. Anyone who expects her and the stories she stars in to be methodical depictions of the serious side of life should re-examine his/her life and priorities. Maybe then the detractors will realize that life can be fun, at all ages.
