Favorite Fictional Character (10)

Favorite Fictional Character

Thanks to the creative mind of Ryan at Wordsmithonia who started this on Wednesdays.

This week I am digging deep for my Favorite Fictional Character. I hope many of you remember her. My characters full name is, Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking. Okay, many of us remember her as Pippi Longstocking.

This girl was one of my favorites growing up. She had her own horse, Little Old Man, and monkey, Mr. Nilsson. I would have loved to have my own horse and monkey! And that red hair with the braids that stuck out and up at the sides.

Pippi never cared that her clothes were of less quality than other children. Pippi also always seemed to get in to all sort of trouble that young children do. BUT, the one great thing about Pippi ~ she never let it get her down. She always had a positive view on everything that happened. She was definitely the character that could turn that frown upside down.

Pippi seemed to have a very creative mind. The other children and people thought she was always making up her crazy stories of pirates and other things, Pippi always talked about finding her papa. But then you see a few of her tales are really true and start to wonder if all her far-fetched tales were true.

One of the most memorable things I have of Pippi is her incredable strength. This little girl that looked as she could be just skin and bones was extremely strong. But, the best thing about Pippi was she had a very strong sense of right and wrong, morals, and beliefs. This character would be a great rule model for always believing in the right and doing what is right.

It has been some time since I have seen Pippi. I think I need to see the movie again.

  2. I remember seeing Pippi movies when I was a kid. I think they were Swedish or something (they were dubbed). I wasn't crazy about the new American movie. But I remember loving the books!

  6. Deb - I agree with you on girls needing a good, strong role model. Glad you enjoyed the FFC.

    La Coccinelle - Yes, I believe she was Swedish. I always just loved the air that Pippi carried.

    Ryan - Believe it or not, I didn't realize she was from books till I wrote this FFC. I should know by now that many movies and shows are based off of some sort of book. lol.

    Michelle - Pippi is a very loving character. I think if you saw or read her you just couldn't help but love her. I will stop by and pick up my award soon. I am trying to get a book done, but life keeps butting in. How dare it!?! lol.

    Krista - Pippi was always one of my favs as well. I have not seen her on tv in a long time. I think they are about due to put her on. I am glad you loved this weeks FFC!!
