* HeroicPetStory: {{Lassie}} pretty much is the TropeMaker for this so it can't be missing from the anime adaptation.

** Toward the end of the original run of the franchise, and in response to dropping ratings, storylines began to deviate more and more from their source material. The final series in the original run, ''Anime/IeNakiKoRemi'', is perhaps the most egregious example, as the series turned Remi into a girl singer voiced by legendary anime theme vocalist Creator/MitsukoHorie. The end result was the lowest-rated WMT series ever and the last WMT series to be made for ten years.



* YodelLand: ''Heidi'' is not just set there, the novels it and its approximately several thousand other adaptions helped to create the idyllic countryside of YodelLand as we know it today. The ''Trapp Family Story'' which is based on the same source as Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic also has shades of this.

The opening theme song even has yodeling in it (or a Japanese approximation). The ''Trapp Family Story'' which is based on the same source as Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic also has shades of this.



* ''Series/BelleAndSebastian'', made in 1981. Many WMT staff worked on this series, but it wasn't a Nippon Animation production, made by Toho with the animation studio Visual 80.

A similar series is ''Anime/GrimmsFairyTaleClassics'', also produced by Creator/NipponAnimation.

Creator/NipponAnimation (and just one of many other anime adaptations of Western children's literature produced by that studio). Compare also to ''Anime/AnimatedClassicsOfJapaneseLiterature'', also by Nippon Animation, which presented [[AdaptationDistillation heavily condensed versions]] (generally one half-hour episode per story) of classic Japanese novels.
