I love this interpretation of her! She is my childhood hero

Thanks, Alla! I thought of you when I posted this. Pippi, despite wide name-recognition, never really made it as a childhood staple in America. But, I gather she's pretty big throughout Russia, and I wondered if she was in the Ukraine, as well.

Alla Bartoshchuk said...

Oh indeed she was! Her unlimited imagination and free spirit make her very admirable. I am surprised to hear that she is not as popular in the United States.

Mine too. Raghu especially likes gloating about how he too has a life almost like Pippi's. Living life outside of school makes for a major series of adventures. Happy belated 40th Joel. love, Hema

My favorite superheroine!

The books are the best versions of the character, IMHO, and as far as adaptations, the 1969 TV series/movies with Inger Nilsson and the 1988 film with Tami Erin are my favorites, along with the 1961 episode of THE SHIRLEY TEMPLE SHOW, starring Gina Gillespie in the title role.

The fanart I drew of Pippi was remarkably similar to this! I love this very much. :)
