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.
Come see Pippi as you've never seen her before!

I'm wondering if you'll be interested in selling this house
My house? Sell it! Hahaha, how can you sell a home? You can't wrap it up, you can't carry it away and you certainly can't fit it into your car.
The ending credits begins with a recap of footage from the film (including "B-roll" footage not in it) as a reprise of the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play, and then dissolves into a still shot of Pippi in the dress and bonnet that she wore for the "riding into town" sequence of the film. As the credits begin to roll, it becomes a trace-over illustration portrait, which is seen for the remainder of the credits. See more
