pippi longstocking song lyrics from 1969 movie
Pippi Longstocking (original Swedish title: Pippi Långstrump) is a 1969 Swedish movie, based on the eponymous children's books by Astrid Lindgren with the cast of the 1969 TV series Pippi Longstocking.
The film consisted of re-edited footage from the TV series. It was released in the USA in 1973.
A mysterious young girl, Pippi Longstocking, moves into the abandoned Villa Villekulla. The redheaded Pippi, living alone but for a monkey called Mr. Nilsson and her horse Little Old Man, befriends two neighboring children, Tommy and Annika. Soon inseparable companions, the three youngsters embark upon a series of colorful escapades, which turn the small Swedish town upside down. Local busybody Miss Prysselius schemes to have Pippi put into a children's home, and sets the town's bumbling cops Kling and Klang on her with riotous results!
In pop culture
Archive footage of Pippi Longstocking was shown in season five episode five of Gilmore Girls during a movie night at the "Black, White, & Read Theater" when Luke, Lorelai, Rory and Dean watch it while on a double date. Luke was the only one who had never seen the film before, causing Lorelai to dub him a "Pippi virgin." She and Rory scoffed at his question "Isn't it some kind of kids' movie?" and responded it was a classic of surrealism with forced acting.
