Storyline

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. Written by Amelia Chanowith

Trivia

Although Tami Erin's Pippi wears a blue dress, just like in the original books, she sometimes wears a green dress, as an homage to the Pippi played by Inger Nilsson in the Pippi Longstocking (1969) TV series. In total, there are three variations of her trademark dress: blue, pink, and checkered green. See more »

Goofs

When Pippi, Tommy and Anika are riding the horse/motorcycle through town, palm trees are quite visible throughout the town square. Yet, in the Christmas scene, it is clearly snowing and people are bundled up in the cold. See more »

Crazy Credits

Upon the Columbia Pictures logo appearing (during which the film's theme song, "Pippi Longstocking (Is Coming Into Your Town)," begins to play), the logo dissolves into (rather than fading-out-and-in to) the first image in the opening credits; the abstract vector image of Pippi's braided pigtails, freckles, and eyes (part of the movie's title logo) over a white background. The eyes are slightly animated, blinking occasionally, and focuses on the titles below: "Columbia Pictures Presents" appears first which fades out, then the "An Adham/Moshay/Mehlman Production of" credit rolls into place from the left and fades, then the "A Ken Annakin Film" that also rolls into place from the right and fades, and finally, the film's title, "The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking," which fades into place. The eyes focus on the "New" that suddenly bounces into place from the left (right between "The" and "Adventures," which conveniently part to make room for it). The eyes then look at the camera and the left eye winks for a second. Then the scene dissolves to the credit sequence proper. See more »
