Aaw Pippi Longstocking even known as Pippi Langstrumpf, I grew with this Cartoon.
It just wasn't magical like the live-action Swedish version done 20 years earlier.
Pippi Longstocking is coming into your town! And she's makin' some pancakes! And she has a monkey named Mr. Nilsson! PURE GOLD, I would say.
