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!
