Things would be calmer in Lönneberga without Emil about, so the Lönneberga residents argue and start a collection to send Emil off to America. But Emil’s mother becomes furious, and the maid Lina feels sorry for the Americans. They’ve already had a terrible earthquake, she says.
So Emil stays put in Lönneberga and gets up to new mischief every day, but also some good things.
The films about Emil were later edited together and in 1975 were shown as a television series simply entitled Emil in Lönneberga, with thirteen episodes.
