Nicely-done animated version of HEIDI, based on the novel by Johanna Spyri. Young Heidi is sent to live with her gruff grandfather in the Alps. Her kind nature soon endears her to the mountainfolk as well as her grandfather, and their lives are very happy, until Heidi is taken away to Frankfurt, as a companion for the lame Klara.
Although this version comes from the series of Goodtimes animated classics (which aren't exactly masterpieces of animation), the quality of the animation in HEIDI is quite lush and the characters are drawn in the Japanese Anime style. The heart and humanity of Spyri's story comes across very well, and adults (as well as children) will find themselves happily caught up in Heidi's world. Highly-recommended.
