Mr. Blackhart: Pippi? Hehe. Good morning.
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.

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.
