With their parents on vacation, Tommy and Annika spend time with their wonderful friend Pippi Longstocking at her cottage Villa Villekulla, until she finds a bottle with a message from her father Captain Efraim Longstocking, who warns her that he was captured by a band of evil pirates led by Blood-Svente and Jock the Knife, who hold him prisoner in their castle on the island of Porto Piluse, so they can find the secret location of his treasure. Pippi, Tommy and Annika then travel to Porto Piluse to rescue her father before he is forced to reveal the whereabouts of his treasure...

Did You Know?
This film is very loosely based upon the book "Pippi in the South Seas" ("Pippi Långstrump i Söderhavet" in Swedish), which was the third and final Pippi book. The book took place on the fictitious South Pacific island, Kurrekurredutt Island (which Pippi's father Captain Efraim Longstocking had been ruling as its chief; the now-friendly natives were originally cannibals, who were since converted by the captain, and now only hunt wild animals). In this adaptation, Kurrekurredutt is written out altogether, and the new setting is a pirate town on the island of Porto Piluse (called "Taka-Tuka-Land" in the German version; "Taka-Tuka-Land" is also the name of Kurrekurredutt Island in the German edition of the books). The two antagonist pirates Blood-Svente (Jarl Borssén
) and Knife-Jocke (Martin Ljung
) may have been reworkings of the pirates Buck and Jim, the villains of the book. See more
When Pippi, Tommy and Annika hide in the well, all three sit in shoulder-deep water for several hours. Yet, when they finally climb out, the kids are bone-dry. See more
[meeting Pippi for the first time, not knowing who she is
And who are you?
A tiny, tiny pirate. Just like you.
What in blazes are you saying? I'm not a pirate! I'm a... I'm a sea captain!
Are you? If you're a sea captain, then I'm Donald Duck's aunt.
- In the original Swedish version, Pippi ends the film by singing the film's theme song, "Sjörövarfabbe" ("Pirate Fabbe"), which continues after fadeout over a black screen. (In current home video releases in Sweden, a credit roll in yellow text was added over the black screen after fadeout.)
- The German version has Pippi instead singing the "Hey, Pippi Longstocking" theme song, which continues after fadeout over a black screen.
- The US version has Pippi singing the "Pippi Longstocking" theme song, which continues after fadeout, with a white "The End" appearing over black, and the song is cut off (crossfaded) with the final fadeout.
