This German-made compilation film was intended to be the ultimate film version of the Swedish Pippi Longstocking TV series (as it includes most of the series' key moments), but due to its phenomenal success at the West German box-office, and news of an original theatrical feature film (Pippi in the South Seas) about to go into production in Sweden, Beta Film (the German co-producers of the Swedish TV series/movies, and the makers of this compilation film) quickly went to work on a second theatrical compilation film (Pippi Goes on Board) a few months later to cash in on the rising Pippi-Mania.

This was, without a doubt, my favorite movie when I was a little kid. I haven't been able to get a hold of the other three yet but my family and I used to watch these all the time and seeing it today makes me long for those days of my childhood. I still get the same feeling I did as a kid and I would recommend this film to any family!
The child actors in this are awesome, they really bring the characters to life. The story is great and I'm sure you'll like it too if you've enjoyed the books. I thought that it was shot pretty well too and that the dubbing was done well. I've enjoyed everything about this film for years and will for years to come!
