* AnimationBump: While the 1997 animated movie has generally decent animation, during Blom and Dunder-Karlsson's [[IWantSong 'I Want' Song]] 'A Bowler and a New Gold Tooth', the animation quality suddenly takes an upturn, utilizing more fluent motion, ambitious cinematography and unusual lighting techniques than the rest of the film's animation.

** Mrs. Prysselius in the animated adaptation as well. While she was certainly overbearing and stern, she may have been genuinely concerned for Pippi's well-being, considering how Pippi was possibly an orphan who needed proper adult supervision to avoid running into dangerous situations, or even causing any trouble, as she was admittedly a rather loose cannon. However, she could have also been solely looking to maintain order in the town by having Pippi out of the picture, and the fact that she sends two (albeit harmless) criminals to capture her could paint her as either a WellIntentionedExtremist, or an overly persistent ControlFreak.

** Mrs. Prysselius in the animated adaptation as well. While In the 1969 TV series, she was certainly overbearing and stern, a bit overbearing, but she may have been was genuinely concerned for Pippi's well-being, considering how Pippi was possibly an orphan who needed proper adult supervision to avoid running into dangerous situations, or even causing any trouble, as she was admittedly a rather loose cannon. However, in the 1997 film, it seems she has no concern for Pippi's safety, only wanting Pippi in the children's home so she could have also been solely looking to maintain her vision of order in the town by having Pippi out of the picture, and the fact that she sends two (albeit harmless) criminals to capture her could paint supports this, making her as either a WellIntentionedExtremist, or an overly persistent ControlFreak.

**** Also from the 1997 animated movie: "I want a bowler, an English bowler..."

*** The songs in the 1997 animated movie can qualify as well. For instance, anyone who grew up with the film can just type "Standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro..." and they'll be mentally singing the opening number.

** There's also the theme to the 1988 movie ("Pippi Longstocking is coming into your town!...").

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Blom and Dunder-Karlsson in the 1997 animated movie. Considering how they mean no real harm towards Pippi, and how their motivations are revealed to be relatively harmless in their IWantSong, they could be analyzed as a couple of tragically poor buffoons who desperately want to live a better life. On the other hand, they make no qualms about robbing a little girl blind, and they had to have done something to land themselves in jail in the first place.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The 1969 TV opening song has gone memetic. Just about every child in Sweden knows it. It's especially popular in Germany, to the point that it's been [[http://youtu.be/nrT5gXkOzYg covered by punk bands,]] [[http://youtu.be/2b_RrsQbHFk remixed by techno DJs,]] [[http://youtu.be/1o9FecbI1OU and even big crowds at soccer games will spontaneously sing it.]]
** Also ''very'' popular in Finland.

* RuleAbidingRebel: You'd think a child with [[BewareTheSuperman superhuman strength and a complete disregard for rules]] would be indiscriminately violent or even murderous, but she only gets into relatively innocent mischief. She was more rebellious in the original version of the book, which was published after Astrid Lindgren's death. It was given the title ''Ur-Pippi''.
* ObviouslyEvil: In the animated adpatation, Mrs. Prysselius is pretty much the BigBad who wants to send Pippi Longstocking off to a children's home. The lengths she goes to just to have Pippi put in the children's home are questionable. The only reason she relents at the end is because now that Pippi's father returned, that just took away her only justification for her goal, and had no choice but to fake a HeelFaceTurn.
* TooDumbToLive: Kling and Klang, from the 1997 film, who obliviously oblige to give Blom and Dunder-Karlsson the tools they need to escape jail. They don't get any better from there... (neglecting their police duties just to go fishing, one has to wonder how they haven't been fired yet)
