We had our Spanky and gang, Tom Sawyer, Dead End Kids while Pippi grew in fame the rest of the world over.
DVD BONUS: Brief bio/filmographies
ADDED NOTES Tami erin used her popularity from this film well and became a UN spokesperson and is still working at it. I wonder if she can still walk up walls?
