A plucky little orphan girl gets dumped abruptly into her gruff, hermit grandfather's care, then later gets retaken and delivered as a companion for an injured girl.
The scene in which Heidi is suddenly squirted in the face while milking a goat was planned without Shirley Temple's knowledge. A tube of milk was attached to the goat udder where Temple couldn't see it, and when she was squirted, her surprised reaction was genuine.
Heidi! Put those on!
Heidi: Oh, not everything. I'm so hot!
Dete: Well, keep on your Sunday dress, and your coat. Hurry up.
Heidi: Oh, all right.
Goat Peter's hair changes from light blonde to dark brown between scenes.
Credits are printed into a Heidi storybook. Pages are turned by a hand.
