...well the theme tune more to the point. The series is long, and that's probably another reason I remember it, but it has a certain charm, which continues to work 25 or more years after seeing it for the first time. We've just invested in the DVD's(2 x 2disc set). The English dubbing may have been a bit raw with the sound effects of footsteps and doors a little on the heavy side, but the scenes in the alps, and the strong casting make up for that. Being lovers of the Alps, the series feels a little slow in the middle when Heidi is in Frankfurt, but the whole thing is very innocent, except for the maid who I'm convinced was put in by Johanna Spry as the 'daddy' interest. It's very 70's, whatever that means! Highlights Grandfather, Sebastian, the goats, oh and of course the theme tune.
