I guess she's mischievous and bad news for visitors. Imagine it with the house from Home Alone. Still not funny, but the same idea, I think?

Ehm, never seen Pippi Longstocking i guess...
She's also very strong and not afraid of anything, so the dude is going to get his ass kicked...

I know what Pippi Longstocking looks like, but I don't know the slightest thing about the character.

I'm the same. I read the books in the late 1980s when I was at Primary school but don't really remember anything but her name. Wasn't the author Swedish? Astrid someone?

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

It's by Astrid Lindgren, pretty much the great mother of modern Swedish children's books. If you're a Swede and below the age of 40, you're freaking indoctrinated by now. And know all about Pippi Longstocking.

If I seem a bit bitter about her, I'm not. Some stories are really wonderful, but I find her a tad overexposed. I was always more of a Tove Jansson ("The Moomins") kind of kid.

I loved those old movies when I was a kid. Her dad was a sailor who left her at home, right? And yes, any adult who messed with her was sorry.

Not a thread bomb, exactly, but saw this posted elsewhere this morning:

Yes, he was. And when he did appear, played by one of my favorite, sadly long dead, Swedish actors Beppe Wolgers. Fantastic actor, and a true delight as Pippi's father.
