Beautiful, a serie that everyone most see, with an amazing story that will capture your full attention.
Certainly is a classic anime with a few years old, but I must say that's not so important as you may think, I'm pretty sure that there are lots of new series who want to have an audience of as many generation (children and adults) as this has.
Absolutely recommended for people of every age.

ANIME MINOR JEWELS, PART 3

Preceded by: Tiger Mask (1969)
Followed by: Ulysses 31 (1981)

Heidi is part of the World Masterpiece Theater series and the best amongst them for me. It is based on a famous children’s book, about the life of a kind girl, raised on beautiful European mountains.

Vivid colors, cheerful music themes and simple character figures are the trademarks of this anime. It does what is supposed in the most basic and recognizable way.

ART SECTION: 6/10 [If you are accustomed to watching ultra detailed graphics, look elsewhere.]
This series has simple drawings that calm the viewer (or make him fall asleep, depending on his tastes). It read more

Heidi came out in 1974 created by an all-star staff: Directed by Takahata Isao (Tales of Princess Kaguya), Layout by Miyazaki (Spirited Away), Storyboard by Tomino (MSG), Music Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, and Background Art Mukuo Takamura (Gauch the Cellist). Basically, this was high on my list, if only to give a glimpse at.

Based on the 1880 book "Heidi," the story is "for children and those who love children." It focuses on a little girl named Heidi growing up with her Grossvater Ohi in the Alm Mountains for three years before her selfish Tante Dete takes her to live with a rich family in Frankfurt, Germany. read more

Anime: Candy Candy
Both orphans, both pretty old series. Both extremely amazing. If you like the sort of story Heidi has to bring then you will love Candy as much.

Anime: Majo no Takkyuubin
Both are about little girls getting involved with various quirky characters in an european-style setting. Both girls are also idealistic females, and finally Hayao Miyazaki took participation in both productions.
However AnSH lack of KDS's magical elements. 
reportRecommended by Venusrozen
Anime: Mokke
The pair of girls is very similar: Heidi and Mizuki are both the little ones, with short hair and cheerful personality; Klara and Shizuru are both quiet and thoughtful.
Heidi and Mokke have both a grandfather as very important character; and the main background is the nature (mountains for Heidi and country for Mokke).
Folkloristic entities of Mokke can be partially regarded as the animals of Heidi.
Some of the developments of the plots are similar, too.

Anime: Sanzoku no Musume Ronja
Stories following the lives of young girls as they learn much about the world around them and human relationships. Their is also emphasis placed on the beauty of nature and the creatures that inhabit it. Also, both are based from novels, feature a young girl and boy, and are animated by ghibli. Truly wonderful stories that portray the hardships of growing up and the many life lessons learned.
