Pippi Longstocking:

So when I was little, my great grandmother gave me this VHS tape. I didn't even really remember the full tile of it. I just knew it had a character named Pippi Longstocking.

And despite the fact I hadn't seen the movie in maybe ten years, I remembered this song perfectly.

With my curiosity peaked, I wiki'ed it. To my surprise, this was an American remake of a beloved Swedish film or book or something. In fact some Euro posters elsewhere blasted our version of Pippi.

Now I don't know anything about that. All I know is I liked our version well enough when I was growing up.

Has anyone here seen this movie? Or the other movies? Maybe the cartoons? It's a much bigger franchise than I ever knew.
 
I recall seeing an American dubbed version of, I think, a Swedish Pippi film that was made in the late 70's while I was growing up. I remember thinking that it was a mite weird, in a good way.

I don't know that I'd call it a franchise, though, at least not in the traditional sense. Pippi's a beloved Swedish children's book character, and so, like a LOT of beloved characters, she get dusted off every other decade or so and run through the media cycle.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
