Did You Know?


At least two actors who appeared in different episodes of Pippi Longstocking (1969) play completely different (and opposite) roles in this film. Actor Jarl Borssén, who plays the evil pirate Blood-Svente in this film, had previously played a friendly hardware store owner in Pippi Longstocking: Pippi hittar en spunk (1969). By the same token, child actor Staffan Hallerstam, who plays the kind servant boy Marko in this film, had previously played the not-so-kind bully Bengt ("Benke" in Sweden) in Pippi Longstocking: Pippi är sakletare och går på kalas (1969).

Blod-Svente: A person like you should never had become a pirate.
Jocke med kniven: Watchmaker. I always wanted to be a watchmaker.
Blod-Svente: Yeah, and mislay as many screws and nuts as possible, right?

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.

User Reviews

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.
