    Pippi Langstrumpf, Fernsehserie (German)

    Author:Astrid Lindgren
    Director:Olle Hellbom

    "The TV series Here Comes Pippi Longstocking was filmed in 1968. When Inger Nilsson entered the studio for the screen test, it was clear very quickly that she was the perfect cast for the role, she looked like Pippi and could move in front of the camera. Appropriate Finding locations for the Pippi film proved to be more difficult: a month before the first shots, the town, the Villa Villekulla, a monkey and a horse were still missing.Fräulein Prysselius did not exist in the books, Astrid wrote the character especially for the films. The role was cast by a German actress who sewed her own costumes and was not always completely sober during the shooting. The burglars were also played by German actors, who complained that Olle Hellbom, the director, looked after the children more than the adults.The Pippi series was first broadcast on television on February 8, 1969. Three million viewers watched the series for 13 weeks and in June it was decided to make a feature film. The first recordings were made in July. Astrid wrote a screenplay based on episodes from the book that had not yet been adapted for the television series. The film, which was shot in Yugoslavia, Barbados and Vaxholm, was made in collaboration with Olle Hellbom.In Germany, the series was only shown from October 1971, after four feature films with Inger Nilsson had already been shown in cinemas. The series was then continued by dividing the cinema films Pippi in Taka-Tuka-Land and Pippi out of control into four episodes each and appending them to the series episodes.
