Quotes from

Heidi: How do you do, Fräulein Rottenmeier?
Fräulein Rottenmeier: What is your name?
Heidi: Heidi.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Heidi? Ridiculous. What name did they give you when you were baptized?
Heidi: I don't remember that.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Are you being impudent?
Dete: No, Fräulein. She didn't understand. She was baptized Adelheid.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Hmm. She looks too young. How old is she?
Dete: She's older than she appears. She's nearly eleven.
Heidi: Aunt Dete doesn't tell the truth. I'm eight years old today.


Fräulein Rottenmeier: [reading] "The quality of a young lady's breeding is indicated by her deportment when elders are present. At such time, her manners should be sedate."
Klara Sesemann: It's time for them to be here, Fräulein!
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Remember, Klara, no excitement. You're still an invalid. "The habit of interruption should always be frowned upon. The well-bred young lady always waits until her elders are silent."
Klara Sesemann: I wonder what she'll be like.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Your father expects a healthy, unspoiled mountain child of your age to share your studies. Personally, I think the whole plan is a mistake.
Klara Sesemann: Papa thought it might be good for me to have a playmate.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: But you have me. Don't I give you my entire time and devotion?
Klara Sesemann: Yes, and it's very kind of you, but I don't have much fun.


Heidi: Are these our goats, Grandfather? What are their names?
Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: Swanli and Bearli.
Heidi: You don't look much like a swan, and you don't look anything like a bear, but I think you're a beautiful goat. I wonder if you give black milk.
Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: You can milk Bearli.
Heidi: But I don't know how to milk a goat.
Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: Then it's time you learned.

Facts about

Marcia Mae Jones was four years older and eighteen inches taller than Shirley Temple when this movie was filmed. Jones later recalled of the scene in which Temple helps her crippled character to walk that if she had really leaned on Temple, she "would have crushed her."
For the scene in which Heidi is butted by a goat and falls over, Shirley Temple was butted for the first few takes. Although she later said that being butted was not painful, her mother Gertrude Temple became concerned for her safety and insisted that a stunt double be used.
A scene in which Heidi teaches Peter to read was cut from the final film.
