The opening credit roll was animated by Hayao Miyazaki, except for two scenes by experienced animator Yasuji Mori. Assigned to animate a ring dance of Heidi and Peter, Mori wanted to analyze a movement of two real people, so Miyazaki and animation director Yôichi Kotabe did a ring dance in a parking lot next to their studio, and Mori shot them with an 8mm camera for reference.

I watched this series when I was a kid and I really liked it. I used to see it along with robotech/macross and other anime series, but this one still makes me feel happy just to remember those old days. I used to like Heidi because I used to spend a lot time(most of my free time) on the mountains when I was a kid. The dubbing they did on the version of heidi I watched was very good and if you think that subtitles are the only way to see any manga, you're wrong. I have seen too many mistakes on subtitles from big budget movies to indi movies. At least a good dubbing like the ones they do for Latin American countries have fewer errors and sound great.
PS. I'm buying this series for my daughter and I'm sure it will be better than any American cartoon now running.
