IN 1969, Pippi Longstocking (aka Pippi Långstrump) was a TV star. Living in her father’s cottage Villa Villekulla, Pippi was free to run and play with her monkey and horse. In this clip, Pippi hangs out with her neighbours Tommy and Annika. The action has been subtitled in English. We see Pippi discover a new flower sent from Japan. She wonders what it should be called. She settles on “spunk”. The caption writer does relent with a single “spoonk”. But soon Pippi is yelling “spunk” at the top of her lungs.
