If you are a child of the late 60’s or 70’s you will probably have seen Heidi, the very badly dubbed German television series with a rather catchy tune.

For years I just wondered whatever became of the little girl with the big eyes.

Well her name is Katia Polletin (below)

and she is now an architect and some of her work is listed on these websites.

but rather interestingly her co-star from the show Katharina Böhm who played Clara,

Katharina has remained an actress and is still famous in Germany and Switzerland (she also has a few nude roles, but that just spoiled the memories).

Well, I guess I can get on with my life now………

  1. Just a quick note. The version of Heidi you refer to wasn’t made until 1978 (as opposed to the late 60s) and it wasn’t shown (in the UK at least) until autumn 1980. For me, of all the adaptations ever made, this is the definitive one.

    1. Paul, The heading is a child of the late 60’s or 70’s, I do not state that the series was made in the late 60’s.

  2. Thanks for this information, Mark. Born in 1970, I watched “Heidi” right through each of the times it was broadcast on BBC One in the early 80s. I have vivid memories of the Heidi, Goat Peter and Grandfather appearing in costume as guests on “Blue Peter”, with their English voice-over counterparts, on a feature about how it was dubbed. I’ve not found this anywhere since. Shame, as I’d love to watch it again.

      I have the DVDs. What I mean is I’d like to see the Blue Peter feature again.

  4. Love this random bit of info! Remember this series particularly for the dubbing. Still, it was more interesting than the US version on this holiday!

  5. I was born in 1970 and would’ve been 9/10 when this was on tv. I loved it. I can still remember the theme tune now in 2017.
