* AdaptationPersonalityChange: The two major movie adaptations make SpoiledSweet Klara 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.

** Dete also gets the villain treatment in the 2005 Nelvada animated movie. While she doesn't hate Heidi per say, she doesn't have much patience for her either and very blatantly only cares about what money she can get out of the Sesemanns. Towards the end of the movie, she even tries to break into Grandfather's house and steal the money Mr. Sesemann sent with Heidi.

** The animated adaptations tend to soften Peter up quite a bit, making him more of an out-and-out NiceGuy or at least toning down his {{Jerkass}} moments.

* 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]].
