Trivia

While the TV series was first broadcast in West Germany in 1973, that was dubbed to German. The original Swedish version (with the few German actors dubbed to Swedish) wasn't broadcast until 1975-76, when the three movies it's edited from had been shown in theaters. See more »

Once upon a time in...EEEEMIIIIIIIL!

The shout we heard quite a few times.When ever Emil did something bad his father would yell his name and Emil would lock himself in a tool shed and carve wooden figures.The five-year-old Emil and his family live in a farm in the district of Lönneberga over a hundred years ago.Astrig Lindgren came up with Emil and all these other fantastic characters.The movies and the series of 13 episodes were made in the early 1970's.I can't picture anybody else doing the role of Emil Svensson better than Jan Ohlsson.And Allan Edwall as his father Anton.Those two made a fantastic comedy team.Emy Storm is terrific as his mother Alma who adores her son and writes down every bad thing Emil does in a blue book.Lena Wisborg is adorable as his little sister Ida.Björn Gustafson is perfect as Emil's best friend, farm hand Alfred.Maud Hansson plays brilliantly the role of Lina who likes Alfred but not so much Emil.Carsta Löck makes Krösa-Maja a great character with her horrible stories.Those 13 episodes had a lot of great and funny stuff.Once Emil locked his father in an outhouse.And he got his head stuck in the family's only soup bowl.He also hoisted his sister up the flag pole and arranged a lavish Christmas party for the poor.And let's not forget the pig behaving badly.Or the horse he got at Vimmerby market.And it ended with Emil taking Alfred to a doctor through a terrible snowstorm.Emil i Lönneberga is great fun the whole family can enjoy.
