There have been many adaptations of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking books since Pippi first appeared in 1948. The very first film came out in 1949 - followed by a Swedish TV series in 1969. This series was edited into 4 feature films for international markets beginning with PIPPI LONGSTOCKING, as pictured above. Pippi is unconventional 9 year old who has superhuman strength and is sassy towards the adults she encounters, a cutie if there ever was one!
