The series was based on the novel Madita ( Du är inte klok Madicken ) by the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren from 1979. The main role of Madicken was played by Jonna Liljendahl .
The films Madita (1990) and Madita and Pim (1992) were later compiled from the individual episodes .
Madita and her little sister Lisabet experienced many adventures together around 1910. So they fall into the water when they want to play "Little Moses in the Reeds" by the river. Fortunately, Abbe, the son of uncle and aunt Nilsson, is able to save them with a boat hook. Another time, the Engström family goes on a trip to the countryside for their mother's birthday. When a herd of young animals appears, they all flee into the trees in fear. Because little Lisabet can't go on a school trip yet, Madita wants to take her on her own trip. When she then tries to fly down from the roof of the wooden shed with an umbrella, she ends up in bed with a concussion. Because uncle and aunt Nilssons have money worries, Madita helps them with their winnings from a lottery. Her cousin Abbe thinks that he can see ghosts and Madita immediately wants to be able to do that too, but is basically afraid of ghosts herself. In winter she got the idea to stand on the back of the runners of a horse-drawn sleigh, so that at the end she finds herself in the forest. When Lisabet sticks peas up her nose, Madita is supposed to take her to Dr. Go to Berglund. On the way there they get into a fight between Mick and Matti, so that Lisabets pea falls out of its own accord. As a test of courage, Madita and her archenemy Mia want to balance on the roof ridge of the school building, which is going to end well. On the other hand, one day Mia has nothing better to do than steal the rector's wallet and buy chocolates from it. Mr Nilsson has set up a fox iron to protect against Abbe's little rabbits. When he returns late one evening, he gets caught in it and is freed by Alva and Madita. Madita and Lisabet learn from their father that there will soon be another child; they firmly believe that it will be a little brother. A sports pilot comes to the Mühlenwiese and Madita is allowed to fly. But for Abbe's sake, she does without. One evening when Abbe saves his father from the river into which he fell drunk, Abbe is completely exhausted and develops pneumonia. Everyone worries about him, but Abbe gets well again. At Christmas the offspring is announced and on Christmas Eve of all things the time has come. However, Madita and Lisabet hope in vain for the little brother. It has become a little sister.
According to the tradition of the ZDF Christmas series, the series ran every afternoon between Christmas and New Years. Each episode was 25 minutes long.
Kino.de describes the film as a: "Successful adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's bestselling children's book, with a cheeky, humorous girl in the center."
