Subject: Who here is a fan of Pippi Longstocking?

Written By: JamieMcBain on 11/14/10 at 3:13 pm

Either the books by Astrid Lingred, or for that matter the Swedish/German, films from the 70's?

???

Off hand, I remember reading the first book, and watching the films on VHS, when I was younger, as well as the 80's film, The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.

I even named my pet cat, after her, too!

Some interesting facts:

-  Time Magazine named the original book as one of the most influential one hundred novels.

-  The first movie adaptation of Pippi Longstocking was filmed in 1949.

-  In 1961 the American children's anthology TV series Shirley Temple's Storybook (hosted by Shirley Temple) included an adaptation of Pippi Longstocking.

-  Unhappy with the 1949 adaptation, Lingred wrote the script herself, for the 1960's TV series.

-  A Mosfilm television film version, Peppi Dlinnyychulok, was released in 1982.

-  There was going to be Japanese animated film, by Hayao Miyazaki, but was unfortunately canceled.

And yes, I did get this info, from Wikipedia!

;D
