All this info was confirmed by Steven Newmark the President of Hen's Tooth. He sent me a wonderful promo add which I would love to share but unfortunately Amazon doesn't allow links to be posted. I will contact them and see if they can load the add on the web site.
Thx for reading
I was swayed a little and confused by the reviews that people left here about the 4 DVD Pipi Collection vs the TV Series DVD so I bought both the 4 DVD set & the TV series DVD to be sure that I was getting what I was looking for and to hopefully leave a more clearer review. When looking for this I also discovered that many people have there own generation of the Pippi that was theirs.
I was looking for the one from when I was a little youth born in 1975 and grew up on Vancouver Island and enjoyed Pipi most of my life. I wanted to bring back those "oh so dear to my heart" childhood memories of Pipi... and this is IT!!!! This is the boxed set you are looking for if your memories are from around the dates of my childhood neck of the woods.
The "TV Series DVD" to me was disappointing. They did change Annika to Anna and the children were not as joyful in the dubbing and the dialogue is certainly different. You are watching the same images but, you do get another storyline perspective of Pipi. As well, the images are pieced together differently to produce a different story that way too.
4 DVD Box set
When Tommy and Annika come to give Pippi the candy box she gives them gifts too. A Harmonica and a ball.
TV Series DVD
Pipi is looking for her bag of gold gives Tommy a pocket knife (which kinda shocked me) and Annika a hair comb, I think it was.
You do learn different things about Pippi that you would not have otherwise known from the TV Series DVD as opposed to the box set, but it's nothing necessary to know, it is not money needed to be spent...Read more ›
My kids loved them! Now... On virtually every technical level (acting, narrative, photography) these movies leave much to be desired. They were made in the 1970's in Sweden. The English dubbing is pretty bad. However, every child that I've ever known to watch these films was enamored with them. Re-watchability is high, and the four-pack is a good deal.
Who is Pippi? She's a super-strong red-headed girl with pig tails that stick straight to the side about a foot. She is around 8 years old. She lives in a big house with a horse and a monkey. She has no parents or siblings, and spends her days inventing silly games and doing household chores in a fun ways. Although absent, her father is a pirate and king of a small island, so Pippi always has a big bag full of gold coins to buy anything she needs.
