More information about Final Jeopardy:
Created by Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking was created in order to tell get-well stories to Astrid’s daughter Karin, who was ill with pneumonia in 1941. Given superhuman strength, Pippi is a 9-year-old whose father Efraim had vanished at sea. Much of the comedy in the series comes from Pippi’s limited knowledge of common courtesy, and the aforementioned strength. The series has spawned many books, films, and television series since its creation.
