Heidi, bienvenida a casanote  is an Argentinian telenovela very loosely based on the classic novel Heidi, which among other things, updates the setting to modern day Argentina and adds a Cast Herd to fill the requisite soap opera plots. Also Heidi has a talking, shapeshifting pet rabbit in this version.

  • Promotion to Parent: Emma acts as a parent for her younger brothers.
  • Real After All: Subverted in the ghost episode. Mr. Sesemann leaves a cake out every year on his (dead) grandpa's birthday to be eaten by his ghost. At the end of the episode, Clara reveals that there is no ghost and she was eating the cake the whole time to make her father feel better. Then the birthday balloons all suddenly pop for no apparent reason, implying the ghost was real after all. However, the following episode reveals that it was just Diego, who was somehow popping them from offscreen.
  • Rhetorical Question Blunder:
    Paulina: I won't argue with you about matters outside your jurisdiction... Do I interfere with your business?
    Gerardo: Yes
  • The Shut-In: Clara hasn't left the house ever since her mother left eight years ago.
  • Springtime for Hitler: In one episode, Heidi tries to misbehave so she'll be sent back to the mountains, but all her attempts backfire. For example, she steals Mr. Sesemann's car keys so he can't attend a benefit gala, but then there's a fire at the gala, so he thanks her for saving his life.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: Time passes within the Great Rabbit's realm however quickly or slowly you need it to. Heidi uses this to sew herself a new dress after Rottenmeier steals her dresses.
