Pippi Longstocking's third great adventure!
Did You Know?
In the Swedish Pippi Longstocking
(1969) TV series, characters sang occasionally, but not in the way of a musical, strictly speaking. Pippi, Tommy, and Annika would sing Swedish folk songs, some with new lyrics. A few times, school children sang folk tunes as well, with only one or two occasions where they are aided by music. (Only the two films Pippi in the South Seas
(1970) and Pippi on the Run
(1970) had full-blown musical moments; the former more than the latter.) In this film, new songs were dubbed over the moments of singing, although again, not in a musical manner. However, the film's soundtrack album contains musical versions of the songs featured in this film, and are still available in song/music collections for the German version of the series/movies. Taken into consideration, the German version of the Pippi Longstocking series/movies has more soundtrack songs than the entire Swedish version combined. See more
In the German version, at the closing freeze frame of Pippi playing a trumpet, a male voiceover announces that Pippi will return in "Pippi Langstrumpf auf Taka-Tuka-Land" (the German release proto-title for Pippi in the South Seas
(1970); its actual title there would be "Pippi in Taka-Tuka-Land"), the title of which appears over the freeze frame before the film fades to black (with a big finish arrangement of the "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" theme playing over the black screen). See more
