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

Although the publicity material touted this film as the first American adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking books, there were already two other adaptations made in the US: Shirley Temple's Storybook: Pippi Longstocking (1961) (starring former Mousketeer Gina Gillespie), and ABC Weekend Specials: Pippi Longstocking (1985) (starring Carrie Kei Heim). Those were the 2nd and 5th adaptations of Pippi, respectively. This film is the 6th (and, as of 2012, last live-action) adaptation. However, it was technically the first US-produced *theatrical* Pippi adaptation. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Blackhart: I'm wondering if you'll be interested in selling this house
Pippilotta Longstockings: My house? Sell it! Hahaha, how can you sell a home? You can't wrap it up, you can't carry it away and you certainly can't fit it into your car.

Crazy Credits

The ending credits begins with a recap of footage from the film (including "B-roll" footage not in it) as a reprise of the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play, and then dissolves into a still shot of Pippi in the dress and bonnet that she wore for the "riding into town" sequence of the film. As the credits begin to roll, it becomes a trace-over illustration portrait, which is seen for the remainder of the credits. See more »

Enjoyable movie. . .
19 August 2000 | by (Cincy) – See all my reviews

It's funny I see adults come in and rip a movie like this. They rip kids cartoons, and kids movies as being "unrealistic and insane and cheesy", well HELLO it's for freaking kids! They didn't make it for some 25 or older person who wants to complain about every kids movie! I watched this movie when I was 12 and I REALLY enjoyed it! The different "magical" stunts they did, the music (I loved the music) and the likes. Still a good movie for kids of today. As long as you're 12 or under you'll enjoy this movie.
