Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
"I make my own rules!" So proclaims the indomitable Pippi Longstocking in this collection of six half-hour episodes from the 1968 Swedish TV series. Based on those endearingly poorly dubbed Pippi movies that brightened Saturday matinees in the early 1970s, this collection stars Inger Nilsson as red-haired, freckle-faced Pippi, a fearless, independent girl who moves into the "Big House" next door to siblings Tommy, nine, and Anna, eight. This DVD will be a treat for nostalgic baby boomers, but the rambunctious Pippi will also charm a new generation, who, like Tommy and Anna, will find her eccentric lifestyle (she lives alone with her pet horse and monkey), high spirits, and empowering adventures irresistible. Parents, however, may not approve of Pippi's "Don't touch the floor" game in which the trio must walk on shelves and furniture, not to mention her possession of a firearm in Episode 5. The dubbing may take some getting used to, but one image of Pippi, the strongest girl in the world, lifting a horse above her head, is worth a thousand words.
