Storyline

Siblings Tommy and Annika Settergren have fun with their friend Pippi Longstocking at her house Villa Villekulla, until they lose track of time and are greeted at home by their bossy parents, who address them before they angrily run off to bed. Pippi joins the family at breakfast the following morning, when Tommy and Annika, asked by their family to cut the weeds off their strawberry patch, are fed up with not having fun, so they bitterly decide to run away from home. Feeling that their two children might be serious about this, the Settergrens send Pippi to look after them. Pippi, Tommy, and Annika disembark on a long and rigorous trek away from home, during which they befriend an eccentric peddler named Konrad, travel from town to town, ride on top of a train, ride a flying car, and other fun adventures. But the harsher their journey gets, Tommy and Annika eventually learn that they had it a lot better back at home after all... Written by John Paul Cassidy <ryuuseipro@cavtel.net>

Trivia

Oddly, this was the first Pippi movie theatrically released in Japan by Nippon Planning in 1973 under the title "Nagakutsushita no Pippi" (Pippi Longstocking's name in Japan). To further add to the confusion, the rest of the Japanese theatrical releases were, in order, the first compilation film Pippi Longstocking (1969) ("Pippi no Atarashii Bôken"/"Pippi's New Adventure"), Pippi in the South Seas (1970) ("Pippi no Takarajima"/"Pippi on Treasure Island"), and Pippi Goes on Board (1969) ("Pippi Fune ni Noru"/"Pippi Goes on Board"). The 2005 Japanese DVD release by Kadokawa Entertainment released this film under a somewhat more suitable title, "Pippi Longstocking Continues" ("Zoku Nagakutsushita no Pippi"), to follow the first compilation film.

Crazy Credits

The original Swedish version opens with Pippi riding astride her horse, Lilla Gubben, against a beautiful sunset, in slow motion. (The film's title is seen here.) A Western-style instrumental arrangement of the film's theme song, "Sommarsången" ("Summer Song"), permeates this scene. There is then a brief scene of Tommy and Annika entering Pippi's home, Villa Villekulla, with Pippi's pet monkey, Mr. Nilsson, in a small bed. Tommy and Annika then attempt to bake bread. Then, the opening credits continue. The same arrangement of "Sommarsången" as before now bursts into full gentle rhythm with soft bongo drums into a montage of Pippi riding Lilla Gubben at full speed in the sunset, some in real-time speed, others in slow-motion. (And occasionally, even two boxed-in shots over black, with some of the credits filling in the black spaces.) The opening credits then conclude with Pippi reaching her destination, Villa Villekulla.

Alternate Versions

There are two different versions of the opening credits in the US version:
  • Just as in the original Swedish version, a shot of Pippi riding Lilla Gubben (her horse) against a beautiful sunset opens the film, accompanied by the sentimental cowboy-style instrumental arrangement of "Sommarsången" ("Summer Song," the film's theme song). We then cut to the scene of Tommy and Annika entering Villa Villekula, looking for Pippi, and only find Mr. Nilsson in bed. Tommy attempts to bake biscuits, while Annika helps him. Just then, the opening credits, over montage shots of Pippi riding on Lilla Gubben against the sunset, begin. In the Swedish version of the credits, the aforementioned arrangement of "Sommarsången" continues, in full rhythm with soft bongo percussions. In the US version, this track is replaced with an instrumental arrangement of the Pippi Longstocking theme song, "Här Kommer Pippi Långstrump" ("Here Comes Pippi Longstocking").
  • The other version simply begins with the scene of Tommy and Annika entering Villa Villekula. The original credits are replaced with cute child-like drawings of Pippi Longstocking (the same drawings seen in the US version opening credits of Pippi Goes on Board), with the same instrumental arrangement of "Här Kommer Pippi Långstrump" as before.

One of the best series of all time!
24 February 2000 | by jeff-89See all my reviews

All four of these films were really good. This one has Pippi and her two friends runaway from home because they are tired of parents rules. So Pippi takes them on a venture they will never forget. Inger Nilsson who plays Pippi did a fantasic job despite you can tell voices were dubbed. Watching Inger Nilsson was just great and that's why these are great films!
