I'm not exactly sure what to say about this, so I'll just provide the link so you can read for yourself. I don't remember this show, but  I'm some of you might. Seems like a remake is maybe coming.

I remember watching what I think was the original European imports back in the early 1970s on "Children's theater" on TV back when I was growing up.
She was a devil may care character who lived by herself by her own rules.
If I remember correctly a boy and a girl befriend her and they go on wild adventures together.
Even as a kid I was not impressed.
I have not seen any other modern remakes.

It's weird because she is apparently fairly well known as a character (there was even a cameo of her in Earthbound Beginnings of all things) but there's been nothing with her in it that I'm aware of for decades.

She DOES have superhuman abilities but it's mostly played for laughs.

That takes me back. When I was a kid, Pippi wqs my sister's favorite book.

In Europe she is very famous. Her superstrength is often described in the books and shown in different ways (mostly lifts) in the movies/cartoons. It's not for everyone's taste since she's only a girl but here for those who want to look at it an example

I loved her so much, as a boy.

It was aired here in Italy very often when I was very young. I already found it too weird back then... and, well, it actually looks weird even nowadays.
