Movie Info

The New Adventures of Heidi may be set in contemporary times, but it's still the same old yodel-ay-ee-hoo. Johann Spyri's disgustingly spunky moppet Heidi (Katy Kurtzman) is separated from her beloved grandfather (Burl Ives). She is sent to live with hateful relatives in New York City. Before winning over everyone except the audience, Heidi and her cohorts get to warble 10 original songs by Buz Kohan. Made for TV, The New Adventures of Heidi might have been more tolerable had it been interrupted by a pro football game.

Not great...I guess I didn't know what to expect.

Dreadful musicalized television made version of the classic story. Burl Ives isn?t too bad but the rest of the cast is dreadful. There aren?t even any good songs. Melodramatic mush that did not hold my interest. Some of the scenery is nice, but that hardly makes a movie work.
