Pippi brings back so many wonderful memories for me. As a little girl I used to sit and watch Pippi with my Dad he always told me she reminded him of me with all that spunk.When I watch these its like I can almost feel him in the room with me. Pippi will always be my favorite no matter how old I am. The adventure she has with tommy & Anika are truly outragous you never know what she is going to do and Anika is always trying to get her to behave and use her manners. LOVE it!!
Pippi fans that remember these theatrical films...(more)

"I'm just about to turn 34 and finally the four original theatrical Pippi Longstocking releases are arriving on DVD. I still get a kick out of Pippi and her friends. These 4 discs are all new sharp, digital transfers and It will knock your socks off. For those wondering about the audio tracks, the original 1970s voice over track we all remembered so well was also kept. There isn't any new updated voice over which I'm excited about, this was only done on the TV DVD series of Pippi released last year since there was no English dub for the TV series. The four Pippi films were mostly shown in the US with a wonderful (Godizilla like) voice over audio track in English. There is no Swedish audio track, again because these films were actually taken from the TV series in Sweden and edited together to make a full length films for the US in the 1970s. There is a Spanish track, however.
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"

"OH MY GOODNESS!!!! this is the 4 box DVD set that I have been looking for!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
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...unless you have it to spend and would like to give it a try. But honestly, the TV series DVD has been viewed once and is collecting dust on my shelf and does not have the same joy to me as the one I grew up with.
The 4 DVD Boxed set is definately the English dubbed Pipi I remember in all it's Glory!!! Right down to the infectious roarous children's' laughter of Annika and Tommy with Pippi and Pipi's lovable, "flirt with danger" "bold, sly, cheeky, happy voice of "who me? innoncence" to the nostalgic soundtrack scratch (that I guess is what could be what is being misinterpreted as smoking voices) *shrug* I do think though that Pipi's big burley papa could have sounded this way, I guess...but, I just thought that it was cuz he was her big strong " Captain of the South Seas" papa *GRIN*
This Pippi was definately the Pippi that every child in my time wanted to be with or even BE! Hope this helps! And if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask I will help you if I can. Joy to you and YOUR Pipi memories *smile*

"On those lonely Saturdays when it was raining outside in Southern California what was a girl to look forward too, during the 1970's, before Flash Dance and Fame? We had no Internet, or cable! What was better than all of that? A Saturday of the Family Film Festival and Pippi! What a treat to finally be able to own this DVD! I disagree with the dubbing of the voices. I have watched it dubbed and still, I love it! Furthermore, it is not scary, it is unique, and as an adult who watch all foreign movies with subtitles this hits home to the heart, it makes it all that much more special. What was different and a bit scary was actually hearing Pippi, Tommy, and Annika real voices! True to form the antics of Pippi has proven to be a lasting one and I encourage anyone who has children to watch Pippi and her Friends with their family. My 14-year-old daughter loves Pippi and what gratification to be able to experience the joy that you are so found of remembering with your own child? And if you have not experienced this joy as a child, it is not to late!"
