Trivia

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.

A magical part of my childhood.
3 September 2019 | by telex1-1See all my reviews

I saw this on TV back in 1976 on KTLA's Movie for a Saturday/Sunday Afternoon. Inger Nilsson shines in the role of Pippi Longstocking with her impish smile and bright eyes full of mirth and joy. The english dub is terrible but the voices still fit the characters. The special effects are extremely outdated but as a child yet spoiled by today's computer effects I found them amazing. Plus Star Wars was still a year away didn't hurt. The adventures of Pippi and her friends were lots of fun to watch.
