5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story and Brilliant Animation October 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I have seen this animated children's story on the Disney channel and it never fails to amuse and entertain. Pippi is high spirited and infectiously non-conformist. All of the musical performances are memorable especially the duet with the school teacher. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's talk about Pippi... March 30, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Chances are you've heard of Pippi Longstocking. The little red-haired girl that makes a habit of tossing around livestock, drawing on floors, washing the floor with her feet and so forth... Is this movie an accurate representation of her character? Is it even fun to watch?
The answer? To some degree.
The movie suffers from having too many songs, but many of them are frenetic enough to be easy to get used to and even like, though there are a couple of unlikable ones, I found the sound to be in general, good.
My main problem with this movie is that it tamed the story for some reason. Most of Pippi's wild stories are completely gone, and she no longer manhandles anyone who isn't a farm animal. The characters themselves often change on the spur of the moment to accomidate this. Even the fight at the circus (one of my favorite parts in the book,) became a tamer weight-lifting contest.
However, unlike the live version, the general attitude of Pippi is mostly similar to the one she had in the book, except perhaps that she's slightly less arrogant and lies a LOT less. This certainly gives it the edge it needs to be superior to the live-action movie, which trampled all over the character of the girl wonder.
There's only one scene in the movie that disturbed me a little, and that was near the end, where Prissilious tries to grab Pippi and she actually looks scared. That's not like Pippi at all.
But still, that's a fairly small thing, and if you MUST see Pippi on your TV screen (and I can't imagine why that would be,) this is the place to do it.
However, you're still far better off getting to know the REAL character of Pippi by reading the books, if you happen to have the time and literacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest movie in the history of movies! November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Pippi Longstocking was one of the few movies I loved the first time I saw it. A couple of my favorites in Pippi's gang are Kling, Klang, Bloom, and Pippi herself. I advise you (especially if you need some cheering up) to watch this movie. It is great for kids of all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Daughter loves it. November 15, 2007
My daughter has been a Pippi fan ever since I introduced it to her at the age of 12 months. Now 2 years old, she loves this animated version, but perfers the one of the 90s with Tami Erin. She likes the songs in this one, and I don't think they are so bad. It took me a while to get used to them though! This isn't like the original Pippi that we all know and love so well, but it is a cute, modern, animation to the beloved classic.
