Did You Know?


This German-made compilation film was intended to be the ultimate film version of the Swedish Pippi Longstocking (1969) TV series (as it includes most of the series' key moments), but due to its phenomenal success at the West German box-office, and news of an original theatrical feature film (Pippi in the South Seas (1970)) about to go into production in Sweden, Beta Film (the German co-producers of the Swedish TV series/movies, and the makers of this compilation film) quickly went to work on a second theatrical compilation film (Pippi Goes on Board (1969)) a few months later to cash in on the rising Pippi-Mania.

Peppi is always number 1
9 June 2006 | by alyssidaSee all my reviews

When I was a kid, i used to play a lot with my friends and my sister. And i always was Pippi. I know all books about her and all movies. Actually i used to have red hair and many years I did act like i had been her. She was my idol for many many years.

Pippi is not very known in another countries, but in Sweden and in Finland she's one of the most known characters.

In Finnish she's Peppi Pitkätossu. And every single kid knows her. We just love her, all the books, all the stories, all the movies, all the TV-shows and cartoons. She's number 1 in Sweden and also in Finland.

If you ever have a change to watch Pippi, do it! Otherwise you're going miss a lot!
