Pippi Longstocking is a nine-year-old girl who one day arrives in the little town and moves into ‘Villa Villekulla’ all by herself. She has with her her monkey, Mr Nelson, and her horse, as well as a big bag full of gold coins.
Pippilotta Provisionia Gaberdina Dandeliona Ephraimsdaughter Longstocking is a remarkable girl. Her Mum is an angel in heaven and her Dad is king of Canny-Canny Island in the South Seas – and what’s more she happens to be the strongest person in the world. Pippi doesn’t need any adults to help her; she’s absolutely fine on her own. She never needs to do anything she doesn’t want to do, just because someone told her to. And she doesn’t think much of people or things that don’t deserve to be thought of. Pippi is free.
‘Oh yes, time flies and before you know it you’re old, said Pippi. Come autumn I’ll be ten, and I suppose I’ll be past my prime then.’
Inger Nilsson (Pippi), Pär Sundberg (Tommy) and Maria Persson (Annika) became mega-stars when the TV series about Pippi Longstocking started airing in February 1969. Fans called or wrote letters every day and when they were due to sign records at the big department store, NK, in central Stockholm, chaos broke out and the whole street of ‘Hamngatan’ had to be closed off.
