Although this adaptation of the "Pippi Longstocking" story was the very second TV/movie adaptation, it was the first American adaptation, the first to feature Pippi in color, and the first to cast a child actress as Pippi. (Previously, Swedish actress Viveca Serlachius
was 26 years old when cast in the title role of Pippi Långstrump
(1949), the first adaptation of the character.) See more
