Pippi Longstocking arrives in a small Swedish town to take up residence in her Villa. The young girl lives with her companions, Horse and Mr. Nilsson (a monkey). All the townsfolk agree that the village will never quite be the same again. Annika and Tommy, Pippi’s new neighbors, are excited about the adventures they are sure to share with their new friend; and the adults are certain that this eccentric little girl with her wild imagination, incredible strength and lack of parental supervision will cause no end of trouble.
