Heidi anime

I told my wife today how a song about Heidi plays every Friday at 17:00 in our Zürich office. It marks the end of a working week and the start of our local TGIF. My wife went to YouTube to search for it. She opened one of the first few results and asked me if that’s the one. (Watch only the first minute.)

It was the right song, but I’ve never seen this video before. The video reminded me of something. Tall mountains in the background, swinging or jumping down, clouds you can stand on, short limbs and big heads … Wait, it can’t be. Can it? Dragon Ball?

It turns out there is a popular anime from the 70s named “Heidi, Girl of the Alps.” It predates Dragon Ball anime by about a decade. Go figure.
