Pippi Longstocking Coming Back Into Your World

10/26/2009 1:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She's a little hard to recognize without the signature braided pigtails -- but last night, the freckle faced red haired girl you oughta know resurfaced in Hollywood.

Tami Erin: Click to watch
"The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking" star Tami Erin, now 35, was at Katsuya where she said she still gets fan mail for the 1988 flick.

P.S. -- She's probably the only person around who can name drop Sly Stallone and the Princess of Japan in the same conversation.

I only recognize Inger Nilsson as the real Pippy Longstocking. No one else has done it better.

This was because of me! Wow, did TMZ actually listen to a posting from me!? A few weeks ago I saw an updated pic of Pippi and was like "Damnn!" So I wrote in saying TMZ should look into this and get this girl some viewing-time! Well, I'd like to think it was me.. Now for my new one, how about finding that guy from "Yo-Gabba-Gabba". Any dude that dresses and acts like that for a show should defiantely be interviewed and see if he's willing to share whatever he's doin...

That's not Pippi!
The real Pippi was some tough European chick.
The real Pippi was played by Inger Nilsson.
Here's a link to a picture of her as an adult.

Oh wait, wait, wait.. how about this one.. "It takes one to know one".. No wait, how about this one "I know you are but what am I!?".. nahhh.. none can measure up to your intellect. You truly are better than me.
