** A clarification on the production of this series: The entirety of Heidi was done by Zuiyo Eizo. Zuiyo filed for bankruptcy in 1975 and their animation studio then became Nippon Animation, founded by producer Koichi Motohashi (while Dog of Flanders, as well as Literature/MayaTheBee, were already on the air). Zuiyo continued on as a separate entity from Nippon Animation, and has continued to hold the copyright of the Heidi anime ever since.

* ParentalAbandonment: if the main protagonist isn't a HeartwarmingOrphan they are likely to be abandoned by their parents. Either the parents go missing, are forced to go away (i.e. the March sisters' father going off to fight in the Civil War in "Little Women," although their mother remains), or even actively sell their poor offspring into slavery.
** Occurs at the ''end'' of [[spoiler: Araiguma Rasukaru, when Sterling is forced to release Rascal back into the wild.]]
