About the Show:

Heidi is based on the beloved Johanna Spyri novel, which tells the story of a young girl who is taken to live with her grandfather in the scenic Swiss Alps. Heidi's endearing spirit and love for the great outdoors quickly win over her grandfather, as well as the locals, including a goatherd named Peter and his family. Although the book was written in 1880, its message of optimism, altruism, and an appreciation for nature remains as relevant today as it did back then.
