Pippi Longstocking's third great adventure!
Did You Know?
(1969), the first German-made theatrical compilation film of the Swedish TV series Pippi Longstocking
(1969), was intended to be the ultimate film version of the series. However, since that film was a phenomenal success at the German box-office, and news was announced of an original theatrical film (Pippi in the South Seas
(1970)) preparing to be produced in Sweden, Beta Film (the German co-producers of the Swedish TV series and producers of the first compilation film) decided to capitalize on the rising Pippi-Mania by producing this film a few months later, using scenes and episodes not used for the first film. Titled "Die Neuesten Abenteuer von Pippi Langstrumpf: Pippi Geht von Bord" ("The Newest Adventures of Pippi Longstocking: Pippi Goes on Board") as a reference to the second Astrid Lindgren
Pippi book, "Pippi Goes on Board" ("Pippi Långstrump Går Ombord" in Swedish), the film itself has little-to-nothing to do with the original book of the same name, in terms of story (although the story's proper conclusion is used at the beginning as a flashback, since it was already used as the climax of the first compilation film), so upon this film's release in Sweden four years later (despite the first film never having been released there), the film was more conveniently retitled "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" (which is also the name of the TV series' Swedish theme song). While still available on home video in Germany, this film was rarely seen in Sweden after its 1973 release there. 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
