This compilation film actually originated from West Germany (which co-produced the original TV series), and not the United States, as is commonly believed. (See also Pippi Goes on Board (1969).) This film has not been presented in Sweden, where the TV series was produced.

This German-made compilation film was intended to be the ultimate film version of the Swedish Pippi Longstocking (1969) 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 (1970)) 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 (1969)) a few months later to cash in on the rising Pippi-Mania.
