Pippi Longstocking, a super-strong redheaded little girl, moves into her father's cottage Villa Villekulla, and has adventures with her next-door neighbors Tommy and Annika in this compilation film of the classic Swedish TV series.
Pippi Longstocking, a child of incredible strength, moves by herself to a Swedish town with her monkey, horse, and a bag full of gold coins. She befriends two children, Annika and Tommy, shocks the adults of the town, defends herself from bandits, and has a reunion with her seafaring father.Written by
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.

When Pippi and shipmate flings the cake toppings onto the captains eyes. Pippi flung a red one first and the shipmate flung a white one second. But in the next shot the white one hit the captains eye first and the red one hit second. See more »
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!
