YMMV / Heidi, Girl of the Alps

  • Americans Hate Tingle: The 2015 CGI remake has gotten a very lukewarm reception in parts where the original is well-beloved, such as Germany and Latin America. In the latter region, particularly, those who dislike the remake blame Disney for "ruining" the series (as it airs on Disney Channel there), even though they have nothing to do with it.
  • Development Hell: Not the series, but fan subs were another matter entirely. This series remained practically unknown to the English speaking anime fandom for YEARS. Some years ago, four episodes were subbed but the series was dropped and left in limbo. Luckily, a fansub group named Silver Zero Subs began subbing it in 2010 and continued on for four whole years, and as of today, it's fully subbed.
  • Ear Worm: The OP will stay in your head for decades.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Or better said, Latin Americans and Europeans (especially Italians) Love Heidi, Girl Of The Alps.
  • Moe: Heidi
  • Tear Jerker: Heidi's progressive fall into despair as she's away from home.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The CGI remake. Aside from the change of animation, the new opening and some minor story changes are considered outright "offensive" by some fans of the original series.
