The stories all revolve around the adventures of the eccentric young heroine Pippi. Her mother died when she was just a baby, so her father, Captain Efraim Longstocking, raised her as he travelled the world in his ship. When he was blown overboard in a storm Pippi was convinced that her father had survived and would one day come looking for her, so she moved into an old house (called Villa Villekulla) in a little Swedish village to wait for him. Besides a pet monkey and a horse Pippi lives alone, takes care of herself and keeps a suitcase full of gold pieces to pay for anything she might need. She quickly befriends her neighbors Tommy and Annika, who are both very normal kids in a very normal family. Pippi herself is highly unconventional, assertive, and [[SuperStrength inhumanly strong]], quite able to lift her horse one-handed without difficulty. She can also be instantly recognized by her distinctive red braids that stick straight out on either side of her head.

The ''Pippi Longstocking'' books have been adapted for TV and cinema several times. The adaptation that is probably most widely known is the 1969 TV series (a Swedish-West German co-production), which was also re-edited into four feature films. There is also an American live-action film from 1988 and a Canadian-German-Swedish {{animated adaptation}} from 1997.

** Mrs. Prysselius in the Nelvada animated movie and series. The original Mrs. Prysselius from the 1969 TV series was not an antagonist; she was extremely silly, extremely annoying and completely incapable of seeing the value of anything non-conventional, but she was always well-meaning and genuinely wanted what was best for Pippi. The animated version, while still not ''much'' of a villain, is a lot more openly antagonistic; her goal seems to be to get Pippi (and, really everyone else) to ''behave'' and ''conform'' and ''do as she's told,'' and is prepared to employ some rather dubious methods in order to reach her goals.

** Mrs. Prysselius at the end of the 1997 film, she is given no comeuppance for the extreme methods that she took just to have Pippi put in the children's home.
*** Although, the film's spin-off made Mrs. Prysselius less antagonistic, it still doesn't hesitate to drop karma on Mrs. Prysselius on the episodes where she is an antagonist.
** Downplayed with Jim and Buck from the third book and the 1997 TV series, even though they're humiliated by Pippi in the end, they still face no action from the law for their attempts to steal the pearls of Kurrekurredutt Island.
** The registrant of the ski race from the eighth episode of the 1997 TV series (see below at StrawMisogynist), gets no comeuppance for attempting to make Pippi lose by purposely stalling, and has the nerve to call her win disgraceful at the end, and is likely free to ruin other women's chances of winning the ski race.
** Not a villainous example, but the incompetent carpenter from the 25th episode of the 1997 TV series never get the idea that he's recklessly destroying personal belongings and property.
*** Although considering the last place he's seen in is ''Mrs. Prysselius's'' place doing what he does best, (destroying things that he believes he is fixing), he'll likely get a rude and angry one [[ExpositionCut offscreen]].

** Additionally, the registrant from the eighth episode of the 1997 TV series, as for him, the mere thought of a little girl entering a ski race is disgraceful.

*** Past incarnations of Bengt were usually just limited to annoying, making fun of, and bothering potential bully victims, but the 1997!Bengt is not above taking/breaking other kids' stuff (e.g. a kid's basketball in episode 1, Willie's glasses and Anna's backpack in episode 16, and a piece of blubber that Willie brought to show to the class in episode 19), or being a sore loser and planning a sabotage against Pippi during a ski race (e.g. giving tips for the already {{Jerkass}} registrar who thinks little girls can't ski and refuses to register Pippi into the race, to delay Pippi, and when that fails, he resorts to attempting to bury Pippi in an avalanche).

* AdaptationDistillation: The 1969 Swedish TV series and its related movies take everything that was good about the books and crank it up to eleven, while removing just about everything that didn't work or was just pointless filler, resulting in a much tighter story structure that still left room for a fair amount of the spontaneous wackiness and [[SeinfeldianConversation surreal dialogue]] that are Pippi's trademarks. It's helped tremendously by tight scriptwriting and good actors (Inger Nilsson in the title role being the most prominent example).
** Astrid Lindgren herself was highly involved with this particular production, which explains why it's so much closer to the spirit of the books than its many successors.
