| What it's all about
While I freely admit that this is not technically a great movie, I like it. I liked the music and Pippi's bravery. It's not meant to be watched critically, witha fine-tooth comb.

When I watch it, I feel ten years old again, and that's what it's all about. :)

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.


Quotes

Pippilotta Longstockings: Im Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Longstocking, daughter of Captain Efraim Longstocking-Pippi for short-at your service/
Mr. Blackhart: Pippi? Hehe. Good morning.


Goofs

Pippi walks down the wall out of the orphanage, and must jump out of her shoes. It doesn't show her putting them back on, but she is seen with them on in the next scene, throwing the message in a bottle into the sea. In the following scene, when the orphanage is on fire, she suddenly has no shoes on and must put them on to climb again.


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.
