Pippi Longstocking, a free-spirited nine-year old known as "the strongest girl in the world", moves into the abandoned Villa Villekulla with her horse and pet monkey, Mr. Nilsson. Without a mother and with an absent, sea-faring pirate father, Pippi befriends the neighbor's children, Tommy and Annika-and they, like the rest of the town, soon learn that Pippi is a girl who likes to do things her own way.
