An underrated animated classic!
29 June 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

One of the movies I remember most fondly from my childhood. Although both fairly simplistic and in a way more real life-like compared to Disney standards, the animation serves the story wonderfully and adds much to the overall charm. Director Robert Taylor had previously made the twisted 'Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat', which reflects itself in 'Heidi's Song' in some really trippy dream sequences. In some cases it even seems like a throwback to the psychedelic animation of the 60's. And the songs are all instant hummable classics that could work just as well in a stage production. One stand out is for example the beautiful and melancholy 'Prince Charming' number with the wheelchair bound Clara.

This movie didn't fare well with the cinema audience at the time of it's release and was soon forgotten, even though produced by the famous Hanna-Barbera studio in an attempt to follow up their previous success with 'Charlotte's Web'. Unfortunately it hasn't gained much of a reputation on the home video market either. One reason of course being there are so many other adaptations of the Heidi story available. Still, this animated version for me remains one of the most entertaining. For many of us who saw the movie on it's original release, it's considerable charm and appeal still linger, so hopefully a future DVD release can manage to bring 'Heidi's Song' out to an even wider audience.
