Movie Scene Sunday: The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking

5/24/2009 Posted by Mel Got Served No comments
Growing up, I wanted to be like Pippi Longstocking (and Punky Brewster- I guess I had a thing for cool orphans). She was rich with pirate dubloons, had a horse and a monkey for friends, and could do really cool stuff (walk on a highwire, spin super fast). Plus, one time she bought all the ice cream and candy on the ice cream truck and threw it to all the kids in the town and in the local orphanage. She was such a free spirit! And as a kid, I didn't love cleaning, but when I saw The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking she revolutionized cleaning for me. Not only does she use innovative scrubbing techniques, that I only dreamt of using (no hard wood floors to scrubs), but she wrote the most catchy, fantastic cleaning song. So this Memorial Day weekend where I likely will do some spring cleaning, listen closely and you can hear me singing this jam.
