When Heidi's parents died while she was a baby, she was left in the care of her selfish aunt Dete. However, now that Dete has found work abroad she has left five-year-old Heidi at her grandfather's house; he is a cantankerous old man who lives in the hills of Dorfli Village, with only his goats and the young goat herder Peter as his makeshift friends. In her new home, Heidi will learn to love the countryside, make friends with the flowers and goats, and most importantly warm the hearts of all of the people around her.
Heidi is part of the World Masterpiece Theater series and the best amongst them for me. It is based on a famous children’s book, about the life of a kind girl, raised on beautiful European mountains. Vivid colors, cheerful music themes and simple character figures are the trademarks of this anime. It does what is supposed to, in the most basic and recognizable way.
