Storyline

After her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the "splunks", going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children's home. Older children will probably get the most out of this movie. Written by Amelia Chanowith

Trivia

Original creator of Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren, was initially opposed to the idea of an American remake of her stories. She changed her mind when she met the daughters of producer Gary Mehlman, both of whom were huge Pippi fans. See more »

Goofs

Pippi walks down the wall out of the orphanage, and must jump out of her shoes. It doesn't show her putting them back on, but she is seen with them on in the next scene, throwing the message in a bottle into the sea. In the following scene, when the orphanage is on fire, she suddenly has no shoes on and must put them on to climb again. See more »

Quotes

Annika Settigren: You'll catch a death of cold if you stand around like that.
Pippilotta Longstockings: Since when do people die from being wet?
Annika Settigren: That's what my mom always says.

Crazy Credits

Upon the Columbia Pictures logo appearing (during which the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play), the logo dissolves into (rather than fading-out-and-in to) the first image in the opening credits; the abstract vector image of Pippi's braided pigtails, freckles, and eyes (part of the movie's title logo) over a white background. The eyes are slightly animated, blinking occasionally, and focuses on the titles below: "Columbia Pictures Presents" appears first which fades out, then the "An Adham/Moshay/Mehlman Production of" credit rolls into place from the left and fades, then the "A Ken Annakin Film" that also rolls into place from the right and fades, and finally, the film's title, "The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking," which fades into place. The eyes focus on the "New" that suddenly bounces into place from the left (right between "The" and "Adventures," which conveniently part to make room for it). The eyes then look at the camera and the left eye winks for a second. Then the scene dissolves to the credit sequence proper. See more »

Enjoyable movie. . .
19 August 2000 | by manny239See all my reviews

It's funny I see adults come in and rip a movie like this. They rip kids cartoons, and kids movies as being "unrealistic and insane and cheesy", well HELLO it's for freaking kids! They didn't make it for some 25 or older person who wants to complain about every kids movie! I watched this movie when I was 12 and I REALLY enjoyed it! The different "magical" stunts they did, the music (I loved the music) and the likes. Still a good movie for kids of today. As long as you're 12 or under you'll enjoy this movie.
