Among several adaptations (even one with Creator/ShirleyTemple), ''Heidi'' was adapted in 1974 as an Anime series known as ''Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps'', and in 1982 as an AnimatedMusical known as ''WesternAnimation/HeidisSong''. 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]].

* GossipyHens: The village below the mountain is full of these. Especially on the matter of Heidi's grandfather and the myriad possible reasons for his seclusion. In some versions of the book, one of the village women (Elisabeth) even talks to Dete on their way up there so Dete can become MrExposition and explain Heidi's backstory.

Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingDisability: Klara does this in the 1993 film. Not only is she in a wheelchair, but she appears to have fragile lungs. This can cause her to experience what look like severe asthma attacks, which then causes Fraulein Rottenmier and the servants to rush to get her a breathing treatment. Even when these attacks are real, the servants and family (except Grandma) treat them as catastrophic and give in to Klara whenever it looks like she's having one. Klara catches on; from that point, it's hard to tell what's real and what isn't because she conveniently starts breathing heavily whenever Heidi or someone else mentions leaving.

Added DiffLines:

**In actuality, the two major movie adaptations make her seem like a SpoiledBrat who uses her disability, not necessarily as [[DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkAssery a reason to be a pain]], but certainly as a way to get attention and/or pity, as well as to manipulate any given situation.


Added DiffLines:

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In the 1993 film, at least. Fraulein Rottenmier is portrayed by Jane Seymour, who in real life is a very classy, polite lady.

**Justified in the 1993 film, as she appears severely allergic to them (and animals in general; she sneezes like crazy when she encounters mountain goats in the second half).
