Will the real Fraulein Rottenmeier please stand up?

Fraulein Rottenmeier has been portrayed differently in the "Heidi" movies. In this one, she was evil. In a later version, she was young, pretty, and Herr Sesemann fell in love with her. In the book, she was ill-tempered and not very kind to Heidi, but she wasn't evil.


I think the 1993 version with Jane Seymour was a much more accurate portrayal of Rottenmeier from the book.



If your last name was "Rottenmeier" how would you be?

"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"
