* CompositeCharacter: In the 1968 TV movie, Miss Rottenmeier is essentially Miss Rottenmeier in appearance, but Klara's grandmother in personality, to the point where she even becomes a surrogate mother to both Heidi and Klara.[[note]]It may have had something to do with the fact that in this version, she was played by Jean Simmons.[[/note]]

* LovableCoward: Though Sebastian tells himself he's not afraid at all, he is very easy easy to spook, and more likely to run away from things that frighten him than stay and face them. He's still one of the more sympathetic characters in the book.

Among several adaptations (even one with Creator/ShirleyTemple), ''Heidi'' was adapted in 1974 as an Anime series known as ''Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps'', in 1982 as an AnimatedMusical known as ''WesternAnimation/HeidisSong'', and in 2008 as ''Heidi 4 Paws,'' in which the entire story is re-enacted with dogs in costumes. The most (in)famous of these adaptations was a 1968 TV movie that interrupted the end of a football game, causing so many complaints that the network switchboard was shut down, which is the reason why sports games that go long ''always'' [[UsefulNotes/SportsPreemption override regular programming now]].

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Why the Alm Uncle originally secluded himself on the mountain is an ongoing mystery. [[spoiler: The original book hints that while serving in the army he nursed a close friend and officer who died under his care which left his heartbroken. Then ''Heidi's Children'' establishes that while also during his time as a soldier and presumably after his friends death, he fell in love with and married a wealthy young woman and proceeded to bankrupt his (now deceased) parents and himself trying to please her. The couple separated, taking a son each, and he returned to Dorfli. Despite gossip he settled fairly happily, but a few years later his beloved son and daughter-in-law both died, Dete took their daughter and the village turned on him and said he deserved everything as punishment for what he'd done to his parents.]]
