Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking.

I wanted to be Pippi's best friend when I was little. When we would come home from church on Sundays I remember that Pippi was our favorite movie or tv show to watch on channel 5. It was like"hitting gold" if Pippi was on. I still want to be Pippi's best friend and I want a monkey named Mr Nilsson. I want to be cool just like her.
Dan told me that he has never been introduced to Pretty Pippy. So, as soon as we finish Northern Exposure, I'm sneaking Pippi to the top of our Netflix list. I hope we have a little girl one day and I can buy the movies and books for her. I also would love to go to Sweden and go to Astrid Lindgrens Land for a day full of all things Pippi Longstocking.
Hooray for Princess Pippilotta, "the strongest human being in the world."
Pippi + Ladytron... LOVE IT.

I'm with Dan. I always knew who she was, but that was pretty much it. I guess we spent too much time watching Scooby Doo and the Flintstones. I'm sure she's got to be good though it you like her.

I totally wanted to have Pippi's exciting life when I was little. And also thought we hit the jack pot when they were playing on channel 5 almost every sunday after church. I haven't seen them since I was little and would love to watch them again.

We never got to watch Pippi. My Dad was too busy watching the three stooges on Sundays.

I totally remember Pippi - I used to toture Mike by making him watch it with me. "ANNNA-KA!!"

And that crazy horse of hers. I always thought she was bad because she got the the good kids in trouble. I was a goodytwo shoes though.

I love Pippi too! I think that might be why you and I both like striped socks so much.
