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 »

Goofs

Seems like this could be one, but might not be... During the scrubbing scene as the song is playing, the lyrics mention 'Monday morning'. Soon after the children leave and the guy comes to inspect the house, Pippi tells him it's Friday. See more »

Quotes

Annika Settigren: You'll catch a death of cold if you stand around like that.
Pippilotta Longstockings: Since when do people die from being wet?
Annika Settigren: That's what my mom always says.

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 »

Fine quality entertainment for all ages!
15 April 2002 | by (Fairfax, VA USA) – See all my reviews

This movie contains all the necessary elements that make up a great movie. The storyline - it's about Pippi!, that's enough! The Americans succeeded not only in translating Astrid's wonderful creation, but made changes and improvements also. Since I never heard of Astrid objecting, we can assume that she was in agreement. Fine acting, most notably Branscombe Ricmond who, according to my sources, was given a starring role in the hit TV series "Renegade" largely because of the skills he demonstrated in this Pippi movie. Special Effects - Though never elaborated upon, Pippi is possessed of superhuman physical powers. She can, for example, lift persons and horses that outweigh her in multiples, dry herself and fly by some sort of self induced centrifugal force! Fine directing - Mr Annakin seems to keep things on track. There's even innuendos, Pippi proclaims that she "...loves men in uniforms, but policemen are the best!" Fine music - catchy tunes throughout the movie which have often been emulated in other movies. It has been said that Tami Erin could have sang the title song as Inger had in the original Pippi movies, but the powers that were wanted her to concentrate solely upon her acting role, except for shorter tunes which did not require as much diversion. And finally mystery - Tami Erin, our star, for reasons still unknown, was never heard from again. This movie is worth watching over and over again.
