"I make my own rules!" So proclaims the indomitable Pippi Longstocking in this collection of six half-hour episodes from the 1968 Swedish TV series. Based on those endearingly poorly dubbed Pippi movies that brightened Saturday matinees in the early 1970s, this collection stars Inger Nilsson as red-haired, freckle-faced Pippi, a fearless, independent girl who moves into the "Big House" next door to siblings Tommy, nine, and Anna, eight. This DVD will be a treat for nostalgic baby boomers, but the rambunctious Pippi will also charm a new generation, who, like Tommy and Anna, will find her eccentric lifestyle (she lives alone with her pet horse and monkey), high spirits, and empowering adventures irresistible. Parents, however, may not approve of Pippi's "Don't touch the floor" game in which the trio must walk on shelves and furniture, not to mention her possession of a firearm in Episode 5. The dubbing may take some getting used to, but one image of Pippi, the strongest girl in the world, lifting a horse above her head, is worth a thousand words. Donald Liebenson, Barnes & Noble

I'm now 30 years old and she is still my hero. Never was there a cooler girl in all of children's literature. All little girls should read the books and see the shows & movies.

I discovered Pippi when my now-grown-up daughters were children. I have re-introduced her to my grandchildren. Pippi is the eptome of liking, being, living your life fully and completely with no apologies to anyone. She is loveable, mischievious, wise, careless and carefree and totally endearing. While I believe Pippi (as with most everything children see on television or in movies) should be watched and discussed with parents, if this is the worst role model our kids are ever exposed to, the state of the world would be far better off. Hip hip hooray for all the Pippi Longstockings left in the world.
