Trivia

Pippi Longstocking (1969), the first German-made theatrical compilation film of the Swedish TV series Pippi Longstocking (1969), was intended to be the ultimate film version of the series. However, since that film was a phenomenal success at the German box-office, and news was announced of an original theatrical film (Pippi in the South Seas (1970)) preparing to be produced in Sweden, Beta Film (the German co-producers of the Swedish TV series and producers of the first compilation film) decided to capitalize on the rising Pippi-Mania by producing this film a few months later, using scenes and episodes not used for the first film. Titled "Die Neuesten Abenteuer von Pippi Langstrumpf: Pippi Geht von Bord" ("The Newest Adventures of Pippi Longstocking: Pippi Goes on Board") as a reference to the second Astrid Lindgren Pippi book, "Pippi Goes on Board" ("Pippi Långstrump Går Ombord" in Swedish), the film itself has little-to-nothing to do with the original book of the same name, in terms of story (although the story's proper conclusion is used at the beginning as a flashback, since it was already used as the climax of the first compilation film), so upon this film's release in Sweden four years later (despite the first film never having been released there), the film was more conveniently retitled "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" (which is also the name of the TV series' Swedish theme song). While still available on home video in Germany, this film was rarely seen in Sweden after its 1973 release there. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the German version, at the closing freeze frame of Pippi playing a trumpet, a male voiceover announces that Pippi will return in "Pippi Langstrumpf auf Taka-Tuka-Land" (the German release proto-title for Pippi in the South Seas (1970); its actual title there would be "Pippi in Taka-Tuka-Land"), the title of which appears over the freeze frame before the film fades to black (with a big finish arrangement of the "Here Comes Pippi Longstocking" theme playing over the black screen).

Pippi as directed by Fassbinder
1 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Although this is one of the least ambitious of the Pippi movies, it happens to be my favorite. It doesn't have the pirates or exotic locations of the South Seas adventure, or the flying cars of the one where they run away from home. It's basically just a continuation of the first film, with Pippi and her friends tramping around town irritating people and showing complete disregard for property laws. Since the back story and exposition are already in place, no time is wasted and the children set to work immediately. And, unlike the other films, the children are a bit more malevolent in this one.

There's a strong, negative undercurrent to the proceedings this time around. Tommy and Annika are noticeably more fault-finding of Pippi, critisizing her singing voice and expressing displeasure on several occasions. Tommy insults her shoes. Annika says her games are dull and uninspired. Pippi, in turn, plays cruel jokes on them involving guns, drugs, and sinking boats. She makes Annika cry and forces Tommy to compromise his manhood by spraying ladies perfume in his face. The animals aren't spared from Pippi's abuse, either. She throws a pair of panties on her horse's head, admonishes him harshly for eating sugar (which she encourages him to do), and brutally traps Mr. Nilsson under an overturned laundry basket, furiously telling him "If you're going to act like an ape, you belong on a cage!"

In "Pippi Goes on Board" there's actually three different children doing voices for Pippi, Tommy, and Annika - as opposed to that one old lady who did everything in the first movie. However, most of the characters are dubbed with unvarnished, lower-class New York accents - which makes their kvetching all the more hilarious.
