When Pippi's father catches her after she jumps off the roof of the boat, he throws her back up and at the top of the screen, the device lifting her up is visible.
The opening credits is a montage of children's book style illustrations of Pippi and her father, Captain Efraim Lockstocking, in various parts of the world (Sweden, Africa, India, Thailand, Alaska, China, and the seldom-featured Kurrekurredutt Island, the fictional South Pacific island where Captain Longstocking became king), as the credits appear over the negative spaces in each picture. The montage concludes with an illustration of the Hoptoad (Captain Longstocking's ship), which segues into the live action scene of it which starts the story.
