Trivia

This was not the first time an animated adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's "Pippi Longstocking" books was ever attempted. In 1971, Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki and collaborator Isao Takahata had planned to produce a feature-length animated film, "Pippi Longstocking: The Strongest Girl in the World" ("Nagakutsushita no Pippi: Sekai Ichi Tsuyoi Onna no Ko"). The two men traveled to Sweden to do location scouting for production research, especially to the town of Visby, where Pippi Longstocking (1969) was filmed). They then had a meeting with creator Astrid Lindgren to discuss the project with her. Unfortunately, after their meeting, their rights were denied, and the project was canceled. Today, beautiful watercolored "image boards" (storyboards) are among all that remain of the aborted project. See more »

I'm downgrading this to -50 because it totally ruined the TV series
21 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was totally enjoying the animated TV show of "Pippi Longstocking" in the sixth grade (yes, my sister did talk me into it!). I thought the animation was flat but still colourful and that the voice actors did their job well (two of whom included Melissa Altro who does Muffy on "Arthur" and squeaky-voiced Wayne Robson who plays that hack Mike on "Red Green Show"), and so I thought I shouldn't miss the movie when it comes on TV. Now, I can see why it went directly to video.

The stupid songs that underline this are atrocious, the animation is much flatter, the plots are recycled and it just goes nowhere! I don't think Gordon Pinsent or Catherine O'Hara were stupid enough to participate in this!!! My advice to you all is this: AVOID THIS TRASH ALL TOGETHER! How dare they butcher Astrid Lindgren's beloved red-headed character! Ever since I saw the movie, I can never watch the great animated TV show anymore! Thanks for nothing!
