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.

Freedom calls and Pippi runs.

The girl who never heard

she couldn't do something.

Watch out, world

'cause here she comes.

And she's bound to teach you

more than one thing.

Pippi Longstocking

is coming into your town.

The one no one can keep down

No, no, no, no.

The one who's fun to be around.

Whoa, whoa.

Pippi Longstocking is coming

into your world.

A freckled-faced red-haired girl.

You oughta know she'll throw

your life into a whirl.

She dreams

dreams like me and you.

And, yes, it seems she always

makes her dreams come true.

She loves trees and roaring seas.

And the mountains please her

more than toys do.

Pippi Longstocking

is coming into your town.

The one no one can keep down

No, no, no, no.

The one who's fun to be around.

Whoa, whoa.

Pippi Longstocking is coming

into your world.

A freckled-faced red-haired girl.

You oughta know she'll throw

your life into a whirl.

Pippi Longstocking is coming

into your town.

The one no one can keep down

No, no, no, no.

The one who's fun to be around.

No, no, no, no.

The one who's fun to be around.

Pippi Longstocking is coming.

If I decide to

go 'round the world.

Just to kiss some sweet

Oriental girl.

Ain't got nobody stopping me

I lift the anchor and go

I run a one-man show Life is a breeze.

We live it for fun.

No apologies to anyone.

We live on the seas We do as

we please.

From stem to stern

each moment is now.

Life without concern

from aft until bow.

We live on the seas

We do as we please.

Papa.

Aye, aye, Pippi!

Why do we want all these

necklaces and stuff?

Gifts for the Kurrekurre

islanders, of course.

And I suppose these are to buy

me a dress fit for a queen!

There you're

wrong, me little darlin'.

They're to keep you

out of the pot.

Little girl stew is a delicacy if they're

still cannibals like the good old days.

Papa... save me!

I'll show you!

Right! Onto Alfonso!

No! Hey!

Are we gonna take Alfonso

ashore, Papa?

Of course. Aren't I the

"Terror of the South Seas"?

We'll ride ashore in style. Maybe

they'll think I'm King Neptune.

King Neptune?

Never heard of him.

It's time you went back to school.

Oh!

Fridolf. Yes, sir?

Take five and learn the

princess some history stuff...

that'll come in handy

when she's a boss like me.

Count on me, sir.

All right, Pippi, history.

Take notes.

Okay, Mr. Neilson, if I have to learn

this rotten old history stuff, so do you.

All right,

in the beginning,

there were... apples,

oranges... and bananas!

And Mr. Neilson loves bananas!

Into the rigging,

and down with the mainsail!

It's plain as Pippi's nose,

there's foul weather ahead!

Sorry, Fridolf, I can't study anymore.

They need me in the crow's nest.

- Help! Papa!

- What is it, Pippi?

A big wave...

coming towards the ship!

- Come down now!

- No way n!

Help!

Take over, Fridolf. I've got to get

Pippi down. Aye, aye, Captain.

Papa, I'm scared!

Lash yourself to the mast, girl!

I'm comin' up for ya!

Hang on!

Papa, I'm slipping!

Hang on! If I lose you,

remember the Villa Villekulla.

The Gulf Stream

will take you there.

We'll come out on top

like we always do.

Help!

Papa! Papa, where are you?

I'm drifting away toward the island.

The current's taking me.

Papa, it's taking me

the other way.

Grab hold of the raft.

Make for the Villa Villekulla.

Papa! Papa!

I'll find you somehow.
