This was, and is, and probably always will be one of my favorite anime series /ever/.
I absolutely adored Candy Candy non OVA. And Candy Candy [parts of what i saw] the movie. It's heart-warming, old animation, wonderful colourful characters, shows the "Truth behind characters masks." and so on.
For those picky about animation "upto date" is not on this one's list, Nostalgic, and old, and wonderful.
