The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking

Synopsis: After her father's ship is carried off by a sudden storm, the spunky Pippi Longstocking is stranded with her horse, Alfonso, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and takes up residence in the old family home, which is thought by neighborhood children to be haunted. Soon, two children, Tommy and Annika, venture into the house only to meet up with Pippi. The three soon become friends and get into various adventures together, including cleaning the floor with scrubbing shoes, dodging the "splunks", going down a river in barrels, and helping Pippi with the problem of having to go to a children's home. Older children will probably get the most out of this movie.

I love ya, Pippi.

I wish some kids lived there.

It would be fun to have best

friends living right next door.

Hello. You kids live here?

No. We live in that house over there.

The nice white one.

Well, who lives in this dump? Nobody.

It's been empty practically forever.

What did I tell ya? Absentee ownership.

Probably dead.

We'll pull it down

and the whole plot'll develop.

You can't do that! We play in

that tree over there sometimes.

Not anymore you don't! Come on. Take

pictures of it. Lot of pictures.

I'll knock it down, and we pour cement as far as

you can see. Everything living gets cut down.

It's another gold mine, boss!

We're drifting in the right direction,

and we're not gonna starve.

Keep reeling 'em in,

Mr. Neilson.

Mr. Neilson and I are very

grateful to you for saving us.

But you've got to eat.

That's all there is!

Mmm, not bad.

Blahhh!

Well done, Mr. Neilson.

You might not be the prettiest monkey at

sea, but you're the cleverest and thdearest.

- What about me?

- Okay, okay, I love you too.

And now we must stick together, like

the time when we were in Timbuktu.

So when Papa finds his way back,

he'll say, "Well done, guys."

Wake up, Mr. Neilson.

Another lovely day.

I hope Papa made it.

Don't worry, Alfonso, the Gulf Stream

will take us home, just like Papa said.

But, Dad, why would anyone

wanna tear down Villa Villekulla?

Progress, Tommy.

Mr. Blackhart has plans...

to build all sorts of houses and a

golf course and a swimming pool.

- Sounds nice. Maybe we should move.

- No!

I don't wanna move! And

what about our tree?

Aah. There's plenty

of other trees, Tommy.

You and I'll go out

and find another one together.

Besides, this town

could use some changes.

Now, it's getting late. Oh, come on.

Time to bed. Come on. Off you go.
