(scene design, layout, screenplay).[1] Heidi
Heidi
is one of several World Masterpiece Theater
World Masterpiece Theater
titles produced around the "classical children's literature period" (1974–1997), based on classic tales from the Western world. The animation studio responsible for Heidi, Zuiyo Enterprises, would split in 1975 into Nippon Animation
Nippon Animation
Company, Ltd. (which employed the anime's production staff and continued with the World Masterpiece Theater
World Masterpiece Theater
franchise) and Zuiyo Company, Ltd., which retained the rights (and debt) to the Heidi TV series. The feature-length movie edit of the TV series, released in March 1979, was engineered completely by Zuiyo, with no additional involvement from Nippon Animation, Takahata or Miyazaki.

Plot[edit] Heidi
Heidi
(later Christened Adeleide) is five years old when her aunt Dette, who has raised Heidi
Heidi
since her parents' death four years earlier, takes Heidi
Heidi
to live with her formidable grandfather on the Swiss Alps. Dette has found a promising job in Frankfurt, but cannot leave while still Heidi's guardian. The only relative left is Heidi's grandfather, and in Dette's opinion, he should take some responsibility. Alm-Onji (Alps-Uncle), as Heidi's grandfather is commonly known, has a fearsome reputation with the villagers of Dörfli, as rumors claim that in his youth he killed a man. Now he lives a solitary life with his dog Josef in a cabin halfway up the mountain. However, Heidi
Heidi
quickly wins her way into his heart with her enthusiasm and intelligence, firmly establishing herself in his life. She spends her summer days on the mountain top with the goatherd Peter, whose responsibility it is to take the villagers' goats to the high mountains for pasture, and her winters occasionally visiting Peter's grandmother, a blind old woman whose dream is to one day hear her cherished book of psalms read to her. Alm-Onji's misanthropy prevents Heidi
Heidi
from going to school, of which she has no experience anyway. Heidi
Heidi
continues to live happily in the mountains until Aunt Dette returns from the city, excited about a good opportunity for Heidi. A wealthy German businessman, Mr. Sesemann, is searching for a companion for his crippled daughter Clara. Thwarted by Alm-Onji, Dette tricks Heidi
Heidi
into accompanying her, ostensibly to get a present for Peter and her grandfather. Promised that she can return at any time, Heidi
Heidi
is taken to Frankfurt. There, Dette abandons her to the care of Miss Rottenmeier, the strict, no-nonsense governess in charge of Clara's welfare. Heidi
Heidi
and Clara quickly become friends, and Heidi
Heidi
quickly turns the household topsy-turvy with her escapades and well-meaning faux pas. Clara is enchanted by Heidi's stories of the Alps, which paint a picture of a life completely different from the sheltered and lonely one she is accustomed to. Her father is mostly away on business, and Clara's only constant companions until now are the servants and her canary. Heidi's longing to return home and occasional attempts to escape are punctuated by the occasional distractions of new friends. She smuggles a small kitten into the house, and she and Clara care for it until Mrs. Rottenmeier discovers it and has it thrown out. Clara's doctor befriends her, and occasionally keeps a benevolent eye on her, but it is Clara's grandmother that has the most impact. On one of her rare visits to Frankfurt, she and Heidi
Heidi
become fast friends. Under her kindly tutelage, Heidi
Heidi
finally learns how to read, to the astonishment of the tutor who has struggled for months to do the same. However, the old woman's departure home again proves a turning point for Heidi. Forbidden by Mrs. Rottenmeier to ever mention or even think of the Alps again, Heidi
Heidi
rapidly goes into a decline, eventually becoming a sleep-walker whose ghostly passage through the hallways terrorizes the household. Summoned home to deal with the haunting, Mr. Sesemann, with the aid of the doctor, catch Heidi
Heidi
in the middle of the night. The doctor diagnoses Heidi's condition and persuades Mr. Sesemann to send the girl back to her Alps before she dies of homesickness. Clara is only reconciled by the promise that she will be allowed to visit Heidi
Heidi
in her mountains. Under the care of Sebastian, the kindly butler, Heidi embarks on the long trip home, finally returning to the arms of her overjoyed grandfather, Peter and his family. Heidi's return and her enjoyment of reading prompt Alm-Onji to partially restore a ruined house down in the village, where they retire the following winter so that Heidi
Heidi
can start going to school. Over the course of the season, Heidi
Heidi
and Alm-Onji become friendly with the villagers, and Peter builds his own sled and wins a local race. The subsequent spring, they return to the mountain in the Alps, bidding farewell to their new friends. In Frankfurt, Clara, who has been longing to see her friend again, reminds her father of his promise to her, but he reminds her that the conditions in the Swiss Alps may be too harsh for her to handle. The doctor is sent to the Alps in her place, to determine whether it is an appropriate environment for a crippled, sick young girl. Heidi, Peter, Alm-Onji, and the limitations of the terrain convince the doctor that this may be just the place for Clara to try her legs again. In due course, Clara comes to the Alps with Mrs. Rottenmeier, whose disapproval of the rustic conditions and fear of animals is patent. However, Clara's grandmother soon arrives, and after seeing first-hand the vast improvement in Clara's condition, sends Mrs. Rottenmeier home, commending Clara to the Alm-Onji's care before departing herself. After having established that Clara's legs are capable of functioning, the children and Alm-Onji begin to work on Clara's physical therapy. Eventually, Clara is able to walk without assistance and returns home with her father and grandmother, promising that she will return the following spring to be with her friends again.

Characters[edit] Main characters[edit]

Heidi
Heidi
(ハイジ, Haiji) Heidi, christened Adelheid, is 5 years old and an orphan at the time the story begins. The story eventually ends some three years later. Heidi's curiosity, enthusiasm, and intelligence charm most people and animals into friendship, with one notable exception being Ms. Rottenmeier, the housekeeper of the Sesemann family. Her only relatives are her Aunt Dette, from her mother's side, and her paternal grandfather, the Alm-Onji.

Alm-Onji (アルムおんじ, Arumu onji) The Alm-Onji, or Onji (Alm-Öhi in Swiss German), is never identified by any proper name. He is an old man, but still physically formidable, with a deep well of wisdom and mountain knowledge that he uses to survive the harsh conditions of the Swiss Alps. He is rumored to have killed a man in his youth, and has a popular reputation as being godless, bad-tempered and hard. He is a skilled woodworker, creating bowls and assorted utensils out of wood, and keeps two goats which provide milk he turns into cheese for trade with the villagers.

Peter (ペーター, Pētā) Peter is an 11-year-old goatherd, who is responsible for caring for the village goats during the summer. He lives with his mother and his blind grandmother in a shack some distance from the village. His father was a goatherd as well, until he died. Peter's family is not wealthy, and he was used to going hungry until he befriended Heidi. He is an indifferent student, and is somewhat notorious for his greed and academic incompetence; however, towards the end of the animated series he discovers a natural talent at carpentry.

Clara Sesemann (クララ・ゼーゼマン, Kurara Zēzeman) Clara is the 12-year-old daughter of a wealthy wine merchant who due to professional and personal reasons spends most of his time away from his home in Frankfurt
Frankfurt
since his wife's death. Because her legs are paralyzed (the exact cause is left unknown, but it is hinted to be due to a long-term illness), Clara has spent a lonely life in her home; therefore the Sesemann housekeeper, Miss Rottenmeier, has publicized a request for a playmate, which Heidi's aunt Dete answered. Despite their age difference, and because they have only each other to turn to, Heidi
Heidi
and Clara become very close, which occasionally makes Peter jealous of Clara, although he still also cares greatly for Clara and goes to great lengths to help her. While in the original story it is Peter who destroys Clara's wheelchair, in the anime series it is Clara who accidentally wrecks it when she begins to have second doubts about wanting to walk.

Others[edit]

Josef Heidi's grandfather's dog, a St. Bernard. Mostly lazying around the alm hut, he is nevertheless stout and reliable in an emergency, and has a habit of gobbling up any snail he encounters. This character was created exclusively for the series, and does not appear in Johanna Spyri's original story.

Yuki A kid goat ("Snow"; English name: "Snowflake") among the flock Peter cares for. She had taken an instant liking to Heidi
Heidi
upon first meeting her. Based on a kid goat named "Schneehöppli" from the book.

Brigette Brigette is Peter's mother.

Peter's Grandmother Peter's grandmother lives with him and her daughter, Brigette. Blind for several years, her greatest dream is to have someone read her favorite songs from an old book in her possession.

Aunt Dete (デーテおばさん, Dete-obasan) Aunt Dete is the sister of Heidi's mother. In the novel and the series, she is portrayed as a rather self-centered person, considering her own interests first and neglecting the opinions of others.

Fräulein Rottenmeier (ロッテンマイヤーさん, Rottenmeier-san) Miss Rottenmeier is the governess and housekeeper of the Sesemann family.

Sebastian Sebastian is the butler of the Sesemann family.

Tinette Tinette is the maid of the Sesemann family.

Johan Johan is the carriage driver for the Sesemann family.

Mr. Sesemann (セセマンさん, Sesemann-san) Mr. Sesemann is Clara's father and the head of the Sesemann household. Absent from his house most of the time, he leaves the daily proceedings to Fräulein Rottenmeier, though he occasionally returns home when pressing concerns are brought to his attention.

The Doctor (お医者さん, Oisha-san) Clara's attending physician and an old friend of the Sesemann household, who also befriends Heidi
Heidi
when she first encounters him on an errand for Herr Sesemann. In the German version of the series, he is usually called "Herr Geheimrat" (in place of his actual "Medizinalrat" title).

Frau Sesemann Clara's grandmother and Mr. Sesemann's mother, who lives in Wiesbaden and visits her son's household only infrequently. A lively and informal person despite her age, full of humor and fun, who strongly contrasts (and silently clashes) with Fräulein Rottenmeier and her strict adherence to discipline.

International broadcast[edit] The Heidi, Girl of the Alps
Heidi, Girl of the Alps
anime has been dubbed into about twenty languages. The TV series was able to reach major stardom in Asia, Europe, Latin America
Latin America
and South Africa. Spanish versions[edit] In Spain, the series first debuted on TVE in 1975, simply titled Heidi[2]. An introduction to anime for an bunch of the genaration then, by some months was it alderady popular enough to have its merchandise include an comic book adaptation, and later continuation, of the series, published bi-weekly by Ediciones Recreativas and lasting one-hundred-seventy-one issues in total from that year to 1981. "Abuelito dime tu" became one of the best known children's songs in Spain[3] and Heidi
Heidi
herself became one of both Sélica Torcal and Marisa Marco's most famous roles.[4] The name "Rottenmeier" became synonymous with "uptight, straight-laced hag" among Spainards[2] and has subsequently been used to describe multiple female politicians,[5] as well as the Spanish parlament, plus has the women been used as an bad type of 'potential' single (the suggestion coming from her first reference name "Frauilen" meaning "unmarried woman")[6] and even had an psychological book written about her, simply titled Rottenmeier: la novela by Roberto Carrasco Calvente.[7][better source needed] In Latin America, has it been popular since debuting on Mexican TV in 1978 and, much like Spain, had Heidi
Heidi
herself become one of Cristima Camargo's most beloved roles, but now she shares famous role spots with dubbing director Francisco Colmenero (Heidi's grandfather), as well as fellow actors Diana "Ad" Santos (both Peter (Pedro) and Clara) and Eugenia Avendaño (Fraulein Rottenmeier). German version[edit] For the series' German dub, an entirely new soundtrack was composed; the in-episode compositions were created by Gert Wilden and the title song's music by Christian Bruhn (de). The lyrics for the title song, which was simply titled "Heidi", were performed by the Schlager folk duo Gitti und Erika, as written by member Erik Bruhn, Christian's wife with oftentime lyricist for Bruhn, Andrea Wagner, the last one who also made the script translations and dubbing direction. The German-language version of the series was first broadcast on ZDF
ZDF
from September 18, 1977 to September 24, 1978. Italian version[edit] Heidi, Girl of the Alps
Heidi, Girl of the Alps
was also a huge success in Italy, where it is still one of the best known and loved anime of all time. Its first broadcast was on February 1, 1978, and it had very successful yearly re-runs. A good amount of popularity is also enjoyed by the title song of the Italian version, sung by Elisabetta Viviani. In Italy, also, the series was summed up and reassembled in three feature films, released in cinemas on horseback between 1977 and 1979. The first of the three, Heidi
Heidi
a scuola (" Heidi
Heidi
at school"), sums up the first part of the series, which includes the arrival of Heidi
Heidi
in the mountains and the meeting with her grandfather. The second, Heidi
Heidi
va in città (" Heidi
Heidi
goes to town"), summarizes the episodes in which the protagonist is brought to Frankfurt
Frankfurt
and befriends Clara, although the longing for her grandfather makes Heidi understand after many vicissitudes that she should go back to live in the mountains. The third feature, Heidi
Heidi
torna tra i monti (" Heidi
Heidi
goes back to the mountains"), summarizes the latest episodes of the television series. Heidi, finally back with her grandfather, continues to maintain the friendship at a distance with Clara. Who, precisely during a visit to the girl initially hampered by Mrs. Rottenmeier, will resume the use of her legs. All three titles were officially distributed in 16mm by Sampaolo Film. Afrikaans version[edit] Dubbed for the SABC by Leephy Studios, the show was incredibly popular in South Africa during the 1980s and had a number of re-runs. While the (German) theme song wasn't actually dubbed in the Afrikaans version, multiple covers of it excist, including by Carike Keuzenkamp and big name fan Kurt Darren, the latter released in 2012 and which makes brand new verses for the song. They describe his childhood memories of Heidi
Heidi
herself and current thoughts of her, including of potentially contacting her through telephone, as well as inviting her with him to somewhere, praising her as well.[8] English versions[edit] Despite this series' international popularity, it is less well known in the English language, due to the English-speaking market being mainly the United States at the time and anime having been faded there in the seventies, by moral crusaders of that time eventually crushing it out of American television, robbing Heidi
Heidi
of getting there (including as a comeback, after the Heidi
Heidi
Game incident). Plus, when the mid-eightes came and anime made a comeback there, had later World Masterpiece Theater series taken its place and Girl of the Alps' own new novelty buzz had faded out. But the entire series has been re-dubbed into English on two separate occasions — first in November, 1995, then in some rebroadcasts and again in 2001 for broadcast in India on Cartoon Network (along with in Hindi (under the name "Sweet Alfa") and Teulgu). Although this English dub was done by Nippon Animation
Nippon Animation
staff and actors for airing in India, they never included the English audio on subsequent DVD releases in Japan. Interestingly, none of the DVD releases around the world have English subtitles on them either. The only version of the Heidi
Heidi
anime to have been commercially released in the United States and Kingdom is a completely separate feature-length movie version of the TV series, created in 1975, but supposedly not released until 1979 according to various sources[who?]. It was later released to home video in both continents in 1985 by Pacific Arts
Pacific Arts
under the title The Story of Heidi. This version was produced by Claudio Guzman and Charles Ver Halen and featured a voice cast including Randi Kiger as Heidi, Billy Whitaker as Peter, Michelle Laurita as Clara, Vic Perrin as the Alm Uncle, the Doctor and Postman, Alan Reed
Alan Reed
(who passed away in 1977) as Sebastian and Mr. Usher, and legendary voice talent Janet Waldo as Aunt Dete.[9] The version is distilled to only a amount of central episodes, as well as so two of the sub-plots (of the adopted Pichi and Meow, respectively) were part of the main plot instead, as well as cutting many other scenes of the episodes, either by shortening them or, most often, removing them entirely. This dub also changes the name of the dog Josef to Bernard, ostensibly because he is a St. Bernard, as well as Pichi to Binky Bird. It aired on Nickelodeon's Special
Special
Delivery anthology series in the 1980s. Indian Versions[edit] Heidi
Heidi
is being aired in Telugu and Tamil languages in Chutti TV and Kushi TV respectively. Reception[edit] Heidi, Girl of the Alps
Heidi, Girl of the Alps
is still popular in Japan today — the love for Heidi
Heidi
has drawn thousands of Japanese tourists to the Swiss Alps.[10] Stamps featuring Heidi
Heidi
have been issued by Japan Post.[11] Japanese heavy metal rock band Animetal made a cover of the show's original theme song. Parodies[edit]

The original Yatterman
Yatterman
has an episode called "Peidi, Girl of the Nopes!". The show is also spoofed in volume 15 of Gintama. In the anime Golden Time, Kouko sings the intro song with different lyrics in episode 18. In episode 2 of the Upotte!!
Upotte!!
OVA series, the Heidi
Heidi
opening sequence where Heidi
Heidi
sits on a swing and then floats across the landscape on a cloud is satirized to emphasize the virtues of character Sig's accuracy with her SIG SG 550.

Movie[edit] A feature-length film was edited from the series in 1979 by Zuiyo (which by then was a separate entity from Nippon Animation, which employed many of the TV series' animation staff). All cast were replaced excluding Heidi
Heidi
and the grandfather. This movie is also the only incarnation of the Heidi
Heidi
anime to have been released commercially in the United States in English (on home video in the 1980s). Isao Takahata remarked "Neither Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki
nor I are completely related to any shortening version" on this work.[citation needed] See also[edit]
