Storyline

With their parents on vacation, Tommy and Annika spend time with their wonderful friend Pippi Longstocking at her cottage Villa Villekulla, until she finds a bottle with a message from her father Captain Efraim Longstocking, who warns her that he was captured by a band of evil pirates led by Blood-Svente and Jock the Knife, who hold him prisoner in their castle on the island of Porto Piluse, so they can find the secret location of his treasure. Pippi, Tommy and Annika then travel to Porto Piluse to rescue her father before he is forced to reveal the whereabouts of his treasure... Written by John Paul Cassidy <ryuuseipro@cavtel.net>

Trivia

For the German version of the original 13-episode Swedish TV series (Pippi Longstocking (1969)), this feature film was divided into four episodes. These would be Episodes 14-17, and the collective name of the 4-part story arc was titled "Pippi and the Pirates" ("Pippi und die Seeräuber"). Additionally, this four-part TV version also features plenty of scenes deleted from the final film, added to pad up the running time of each episode. (See "Alternate Versions.") See more »

Goofs

When Pippi, Tommy and Annika hide in the well, all three sit in shoulder-deep water for several hours. Yet, when they finally climb out, the kids are bone-dry. See more »

Quotes

Blod-Svente: [entering the Inn after Pippi has thrown two pirates out the window] Where's Pedro?
Innkeeper: [points towards the broken window] Pedro fly out that way.
Blod-Svente: And Franco?
Innkeeper: [points towards the other window] Franco fly out that way.
Jocke med kniven: Have they turned into homing pigeons?

Alternate Versions

Ending Credits:
  • In the original Swedish version, Pippi ends the film by singing the film's theme song, "Sjörövarfabbe" ("Pirate Fabbe"), which continues after fadeout over a black screen. (In current home video releases in Sweden, a credit roll in yellow text was added over the black screen after fadeout.)
  • The German version has Pippi instead singing the "Hey, Pippi Longstocking" theme song, which continues after fadeout over a black screen.
  • The US version has Pippi singing the "Pippi Longstocking" theme song, which continues after fadeout, with a white "The End" appearing over black, and the song is cut off (crossfaded) with the final fadeout.

The world would be a much brighter place to live aside with Pippi as a president...
4 February 2004 | by Razor_cutSee all my reviews

I just want to agree with fedtho that people who votes an 6 or less must see the film from a miserable perspective. Cause here in this movie we have a really good person worthy of imitation. Pippi is more like an superhero for every children (without super mussels or rocket launchers). She also fights for the weakest of children.

Children needs a girl like Pippi who aren't perfect looking but just as perfect as she is created.
