Pippi, a carrot-haired Swedish girl, once again embarks on a series of pranks, capers, and mischief which add up to one grand adventure for her and her two companions. In this episode, a sequel to Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes on Board, Pippi, Tommy and Annika take off on a boat on which Pippi's father is captain and sail to an island on which he is King.
