Trivia

The original Swedish version comprised of 13 TV episodes, followed the next year by 2 original theatrical feature films Pippi in the South Seas (1970), and finally, Pippi on the Run (1970). In West Germany (where the series was co-produced), there were 4 theatrical films (the first two being Pippi Longstocking (1969) and Pippi Goes on Board (1969), which were compilations of the TV series, done by the German studios Iduna Film and Beta Film; the last two being, of course, "Pippi in the South Seas" and "Pippi on the Run."), and the TV series ran for 21 episodes (the first 13 match the original Swedish version, and the additional 8 episodes were 4-part serialized versions of "Pippi in the South Seas" and "Pippi on the Run," including several deleted scenes from both films).

Great childhood memories of the 70s
23 April 2014 | by RealLiveClaudeSee all my reviews

Used to watch this series every Saturday morning on the french CBC network in Canada. Though the series was well dubbed in Belgium (and the movies were dubbed in Canada later...), it was the funniest and most original series ever come from Europe. It made me discover Sweden as well. It has an international touch in which the location would not matter here...

If Pippi (or Fifi in french) had a few tricks on her dress to avoid the cops or the old lady who wants to bring her to an orphanage, she was real kind to her best friends Tommy and Anika, and always was eager to help. And she loved her animals, especially her horse and the pet monkey.

I liked the first season due to its freshness and originality. The "pirates" one and the 3rd season are less interesting.

Wish there would be a DVD in French for this wonderful show...
