Do her pigtails stink?

Was Pippi magical or supernatural? I only saw the remake from the 80s and it seems like she had powers. I still remember the song.

Pippi Longstocking is coming into your world.

A freckle faced little girl for you to know, oh, oh oh.

One of the best children's books.

The pigtails were the least of it!?!!!

Was Pippi Longstocking a Swedish book?

by Anonymousreply 603/24/2021

I watched the series as a kid. STV filmed many Astrid Lindgren’s children’s book series. All were well done.

R6 yes, written by Astrid Lindgren

Did you read subtitles as a kid? Or were these movies dubbed in English?

She was my idol. At 9 years old I didn't even notice the atrocious dubbing.

Loved it! Just loved the story and her, very different.

This Swedish version from the 60s/70s was creepy af and the dubbing in English was the worst. Here it is dubbed in some Asian language. The “special effects” were very special.

I love that the Swedish movies were dubbed by what sounds like kids who were pulled off the street in Brooklyn.

The movies I watched in the early 80s were dubbed.

R16’s clip brought back memories, I had forgotten about Tommy, Annika and Mr. Nilsson.

So she does have magical powers. She makes a bed fly in the air and they travel around on it like a flying carpet.

The English dub of Annika is annoying. She was always the whiny crybaby. They were always eating and laughing at stupid shit.

Who was the bigger Swedish lez, Pippi or Greta Garbo?

by Anonymousreply 2903/24/2021

I rented the dubbed version of this in the '80s when I was a kid and I didn't love it, the dubbing was about the standard of the Emanuelle movies which appeared on Cinemax after dark which I watched a few years later...that is to say, terrible.

She’s like Greta Thunberg’s whore cousin.

Greta would be a boring Pippi. She’d just stare intensely at the camera for two hours.

I named my cat Pippi. It was destined, she was a handful of a cat, a bit crazy. Lived to be 19.5 years-old before putting her down last month, the vet came to the house and did it. She made a little impression of her paw for me. Still grieving.

by Anonymousreply 3903/24/2021

She’s the one who smokes pot and goes off on negroes in the books. Pipi was all sorts of problematic.

Sorry, dear heart R39.

Bootsy's response made me laugh.

Poor Pippi cat! Sorry! :(

She probably stuck around so long to live up to her name!

by Anonymousreply 4203/24/2021

IIRC, in the books Pippi was strong enough to deadlift her pony.

She also smoked pipe tobacco.

She also snorted black tar heroin, although I may have that confused with another children's book character.

That was the latest remake, Pippispotting, a redux of Trainspotting.

Is there a trans porn parody called Transpotting?

yes, Pippi had super strength. Her father did too, I don’t know if he passed on a magic spell to her from the South Seas or not. I think she could also command the wind.

The 1988 version hasn't aged particularly well. It was done on the cheap at a TV studio in Florida, and it seems like they wanted to do it as a musical but then when they found the actors they hired couldn't sing, they dubbed in these big choruses of kiddie singers singing forgettable songs that sound like late 1980s pop; the title song is the only one that's any good. It's anachronistic because everyone is dressed like they're in the mid-1950s. And they turned Pippi into a real brat instead of a smart, inquisitive child who challenges authority. Throwing ice cream at orphans? Being rude in math class? Dumping sugar on the table? And that stuff with those two burglars trying to steal Pippi's house just goes nowhere.

I haven't rewatched the Swedish-made 1970s films but even as a kid I remember those as being better and more like the books. The 1997 animated version looked pretty bad.

I never thought about it as a kid, but looking back I think you're right. I suspect Tommy might have been gay too.

The original films are surreal and super weird to see now. Really enjoyable and trippy. Sid and Marty Krofft-level weird.

There’s a great SCTV parody out there somewhere.

I still love the first original movie dubbed in English, weirdness and all. It started a lifelong fascination with that dreamy faraway country called Sweden. The movie isn’t anything special, really, just 3 kids running around doing kid things, but the way they do it is weird, and Pippi stands up to bullies, police, and criminals, which I like. If I recall, she goes out on a raft looking for “shpunk” — very weird girl.
