“Before Merida of Brave, but after Little Orphan Annie, another very important beloved redhead of page and screen who has had a profound worldwide cultural influence – Pippi Longstocking.” Examiner

The best of all the Pippi Longstocking versions. Famed for her fiery red pig-tails and off-beat quirky personality, Pippi has become a firm favourite across the generations adding humour, superhuman strength and a splash of cheekiness to the screen. Her adventures with her monkey and friends will delight children (and adults!) of all ages.
